Hi, just bought my first 4 wheeler, it's a 05 Sportsman 500 HO that has 1134 miles and about 240 hrs. It has some minor cosmetic issues, cracked plastics and floor boards, scratches and a dented rim which I replaced. All in all it seems to be running well, though I am unsure what a bad running Sportsman sounds like. I've owned dirt bikes and one 200x 3 wheeler, so I have a general idea of what to look for, and how a motor should sound, but I am new to the automatic tranny and am not sure what I should hear and what I shouldn't. The machine came with Swamp Lite tires on it, are they OK for that machine without a clutch kit? I changed the oil and differential fluids, what else should I do to help maintain a decent running vehicle. Thanks in advance.
