Wow lots of wrecked quads here. Bummer. Here's my blue 19 1000 and green 850. The 1000 has 27x9x12 maxxis 'zillas front and rear on 12x6 stock steel Ranger rims. Had to grind the brake calipers about 1/4" and also use 1/4"spacers. 100% worth the effort, the rim protection is so much better than the 14" rims. I posted an info thread in "wheels and tires" with more pics for anyone interested.
I'm considering taking the sway bar off. But I ride pretty crazy so I'm curious how much more body roll I'll get when hanging the rear tires out at speed. Anyone done it? I have my stock springs cranked all the way stiff already to stop from bottoming out so much. I'm also looking into some Fox, Elka, King, Walker Evan's or similar shocks to try to get the suspension on par with the 450 Mxers I have. Any input on aftermarket shocks?
I have a RVS performance clutch kit for a Polaris sportsman 1000. This kit was never installed. Brand new. It was bought for a 2015 1000 but I’m sure it fits other models. Made for stock tires, sea level, harder hit and harder pull. New this kit was $275. Asking $200 Shipped.Call/text with...
Ran tracks for 5 years on my Ranger 900 and it just turned the machine into a tank. It was fun but was tough on axles, loud as hell, and topped out at 40...

This PO1000 just squeaks like crazy. I thought my 2014 PO 850 was bad, but this 1000 makes my 850 sound quiet. Short of constantly pumping silicone lube into the bushings, what options (if any) exist to calm all this noise? Lubing the bushings is good for 3/4 of a day ride, then its back to...
My sportsman 1000 turned over very slow today when I started it. Then I noticed my dash flashing on and off, more so when I would give it throttle. I checked the volts and it’s about 12.8 idling and goes up to about 14.8 when giving it throttle. I have an agm battery in it that’s only 6 months...
