hey guys im new here. ive only ridden a few times but boy is it fun. just gotta remember the goggles next time:pat: anyway my girlfriends father has a 2005 or 2006 Polaris Sportsman 700EFI Mossy Oak edition. well the last time we were out the fan didnt come on and the check engine light came on. well he asked me to take a look at it and i figure since its the easiest thing to get to i would try replacing the coolant sensor first. thing is i dont get off work before the local shop closes to get the part. i figued id get it online. well i cant find it. if anyone knows where i can get one online please post up a link. id greatly appreciate it!

The fan is "suppose" to run constantly when the ect sensor goes bad.

New Girl on the Block

Hi,

I am a 52 year old female (though I don't feel that old at all!). I am the
proud owner of a 2007 Polaris Sportsman 800. It was bought new in
Oct. of 2008.

We didn't get much riding done then because the trails were closed in the town we ride (Pittsburg, NH). We rode around our land though, and I didn't have any problems at all with my ATV. It shifted nice and easy.

We registered it on June 30 of this year and began riding on the trails.
I began having a lot of trouble shifting, especially using "lo" and "reverse".
We brought it to the dealer, and he said it was a broken motor mount
which he fixed. He said that should take care of the problem.

We went back out on the trails and it was just as bad. Sometimes my
husband actually had to get off his machine and come over and shift
mine from "lo" to "high". We brought it back to the Polaris dealer and all
he said was "the 800s are known for that." I felt like saying to him "well why didn't you tell me that when I bought it?" It had 187 miles when I brought
it to him the first time and about 250 miles when we brought it in the
second time and he wouldn't even look at it.

Should I bring it do another Polaris dealer, or is it true that the shifting
gets very, very hard? But even my husband has to "jerk" into a different
gear. It just seems that something is wrong here. Any suggestions?

Thanks for anyone who can help me.

Posted in wrong place

Hi,

I'm sorry. I just realize I posted in the wrong place. I am basically
computer illiterate and don't know my way around the boards.
