I see that this a pretty old thread but I still need help with a VIN. The boss thinks the Sportsman 500 is pre 1997. The only number I can find is under the seat and is stamped 3217193 one #1 quad. And 3217197 on the other. Running them thru Polaris I get nothing. Any ideas?

That's not the VIN. Did you look for a stemped in # on the frame - front end left or right side?

Yes. All over the frame, left side, right side, front and back. That is the only stamped in number on the frame anywhere I can find. I figured with 7 numbers it was the VIN. It is old enough there is no decals except the model number. Which is also located under the seat on the frame.

I have a Polaris Big Boss I got from a friend. I found the number 2955385 on the frame. When I click links to the 7 digit vin decoder it forwards me to the Polaris site and I can't find anything there. Can someone help me decode this? I don't know exact model, year, or anything. Thank you.

Polaris started out with 7 digit vin number then changed to 17 digits later. It will work on some sights but pain in butt to research. My 1993 350 sportsman vin is 2116751.
