Hey there everyone! I'm a first time polaris owner. I picked up a 2002 sportsman 700 real cheap. It has a few problems I was hoping to to see if y'all had any suggestions on what to do. The speedometer doesn't work and the 4x4 doesn't work. I figured at the price I got it for I could fix it and still come out on too. So if any one has any suggestions I would love to hear them before I take it in to polaris.

It runs and is driveable, all four tires pain when on jacks but when on ground the left rear won't spin. But i will replace the speedometer and see how it goes. Thank you

That sounds like a different issue. I assumed it wouldn't work in 4 wheel at all. Both rears should turn on the ground. Maybe a stripped hub or broken cv joint?

Would it be best for me to pull it apart and check it out myself? I am some what mechanical inclined, never worked on an atv just older trucks. Or should i take it down to the local polaris shop and have them check it out?
