On 2010 500 h.o. , how many fittings are there? On mine there are one on each A-arm, and one on prop shaft. Does this sound right?
The lower rear a arm has one zerk on each side and the upper rear a arm is a split design and has two on each upper a arm. The front lower a arm only has one on each side, and prop shaft has one as you've said. Look carefully as they can be a little hard to see, especially if your bike is dirtyI've looked all over and can't find any other than front and rear a-arms and prop shaft, if anyone has any pics, I would appreciate it.Thanks
Check the microfiche and see if there was a change between 2010 and 2013 because I have 6 on the rear and two on the front plus one on the prop shaftAccording to the microfiche, you should have 5 total. The front A arms have one each. The rear lower control arms have one each. And the front prop shaft has one.
I called a friend who has a 2010 sportsman 500 HO and he said he has the same as me as far as the zerks which is 6 on the rear and two up front and the prop shaftI've looked all over and can't find any other than front and rear a-arms and prop shaft, if anyone has any pics, I would appreciate it.Thanks
Look at it this way, if it has an upper control arm then there has to be a zerk to lubricate it. Like I said, the upper is a split design and has two zerks for each upper control. I don't think any are different since my buddy's is the same year as yours and his is just like mine, two zerks on the upper control arms on each side. If yours truly has no zerks on the uppers, take it back to Polaris and tell them to explain whyI just checked again to be sure, and I'm only finding one on each lower arm in rear,nothing up top,one on each front a-arm,and prop shaft.???? It's got me wondering, maybe some are different?
You're not crazy benm...well you may be...I don't really know. But you are correct that you have no fittings on the rear upper arms or the bearing carrier bushings or the torsion bar unless you take it apart and install them yourself.I hope you guys don't think I'm crazy, we'll maybe I am but that's not the point, I looked one more time and there is positively no grease fittings there, I see the bushings but nowhere to grease them. Not even a hole for a zerk.
