Hello, I bought a used 2007 Polaris Sportsman 500.
When I am going up sandy hills my front tires both spin together like they are locked together, the rear only spins one at a time like it has an open differential. I am in full 4X4 when I experience this.
Should the rear tires spin like they are locked together in loose sand when I am in full 4X4? I wonder if I have a broken part in the rear?

if its in 4x4 all 4 wheels should spin. in 2x4 just the rear 2 will spin together. unless you have turf mode. but yes the rear wheels should always spin togetther no matter what. if not theres a tranny issue or something. again unless you have turf mode.

Traction??

:thrashi:Hello. Thanks for the welcoming!
I am not in turf mode, I am in full 4x4 when only one rear tire spins at a time.
I thought I was right when I though both rear tires should spin together when in full 4x4 mode.
I am going to fix this then so I can get stuck FURTHER into the mud hole !!
Thanks for responses.
