Hello to all.
I've owned my sportsman 450 for 3 years now, Its a tough little quad and has all the power I need. Its not a speed deamon but on the trails I've left 700's behind and at the bottom of the hill.

Its down and out right now, After a good 40ft tumble I parked it for the winter in the corner of shame. But once I tore into it I was surprised at how little damage was really done. Handle bars, brush guard, and one front rim. Well, and the storage box on the front :)

Anyways, Enough about why I'm here, Look forward to seeing you guys on the forums and finding out some decent mods.

Thanks guys.

the repairs are coming along. Installed the new brush guard last night. It took me a few minutes fighting with the bolts before I realized that the replacement was not threaded.

New bushings on the rear suspension.

Actually there is one thing I could use some help on. The headlights were ripped out somewhere between the 3rd and 5th tumble, or maybe it was the tree....could have been the ditch it landed in....anyways :ponder: (its one tough quad)

I've contacted a few dealerships and I am unable to get the plug for the headlight without ordering the entire electrical harness. I've been to Greggs, Napa, Canadian tire and Ebay and can't find a light plug that doesn't need some modification.

Is there a part number or secret society of polaris parts that I can't find? thanks for the help.

Welcome neighbor to the north! There is a thread or two on here someplace about light plugs. Maybe try a search and see if you turn up anything. I know they have used different types of plugs and bulbs over the years. What year is it?
