Hey so i greasing up my 2005 sportsman 500 and realized that it only has 3 grease nipples 2 on the front and one on the yoke. I looked online and found that the sportsman 800's have them in the back to but i couldn't find any more on mine, the manual also says only 3 but you'd think it has more then that and advice ? Also what else should i grease up while I'm at it ?

Thanks, Jake

From what I've read, Polaris added, subtracted, added, subtracted the number of zerks on these quads over the years. So I think the number of zerks changed year by year for sometime

Apparently so, you would think that there would be more then 3 on the whole bike tho

Yup, 2005 500HO only has 3. I have been known to disassemble a-arms and grease the bushings with sticky marine grease!! Also greased all tie-rod ends (inside the rubber boots).
