I HAVE A 97 POLARIS 500 4X4 EXPLORER. I JUST BOUGHT IT TODAY. THE BIKE WOULD GO INTO GEAR WHILE I LOADED IT UP. IT ROCKED AND WOBELED BAD WHEN I DROVE IT AT HOME AND MADE A CLACKING NOISE. NOW IT WILL NOT EVEN GO INTO GREAR. I MANAGED TO GET IT IN TO DRIVE BUT HAD TO GIVE IT QUITE A BIT OF GAS TO MAKE IT GO. IT SOUNDED LIKE IT WAS SLIPPING IN AND OUT OF GEAR. THE MAN I PURCHASED IT FROM JUST REPLACED THE REAR CV SHAFT ON THE LEFT SIDE BECAUSE HE SAID HE "SHATTERED IT" . THE FLUID IN THE CASE LOOKED NEW AND WAS FULL. OH YEA, WHEN I STARTED IT UP IT ALSO MADE A FUNNY WINING NOISE. ANY SUGESTIONS ON WHAT MY NEXT MOVE SHOULD BE.:hmmm:

If you had to give it a lot of gas to make it go it probably needs a new belt. I would check and clean the clutches while you're at it.
