Fluids, front end, tires, suspension etc. Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, but never Polaris. The front diff needs a rebuild, the axles are very loose where they go into diff. The service manual downloads for the above listed models describes the service procedures for the complete vehicle. My question is, both front wheels rotate forward by hand, but do not rotate the opposite direction.
. I lifted the front end off the garage floor with overhead hoist, as I moved it sideways the rear tires skidded rather than rotate. Last week I purchased a 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700. Thanks for any advice on advance! Registration is fast and you can even login with social network accounts to sync your profiles and content. Both would roll forward easy, but not go in a circle.
I'm looking for advice on what I should be looking for, any common issues, really any general advice. It's a old machine that was not maintained, I thought the wheels were all rusted, but it was 17 years off baked on red clay. I'm a new member looking to get some advice before I go to check out a '14 Sportsman 800. Performing the scheduled maintenance is very important. I've been riding my whole life, dirt bikes and atvs. Just wanna know if anyone has had an alternator charging prob if using an auxillary piece of equipment eg spray unit. When I drove the machine in the garage making a tight turn I could feel the binding and skidding of rear tires.
This is the factory service manual for the 03 sportsman 500 ho to have complete manual download all sectionset or just download the section you need. I wanted to get input from you guys that have experience with Polaris machines. Just doesn't keep up the charge only when using spary unit, and headlights are off. A little info on the machine. New battery, and cant seem to catch the alternator playing up, reads all good on outlet power. I'll make sure to check out all the basics. The subsequent pages give detailed procedures.
Most all service manual chapters start with an assembly or system illustration, diagrams, exploded parts view, quality pictures, service information and troubleshooting for the section. Even if the switch was in 4 wheel drive, when it's hanging in te air the ignition is off. . Just wanting to make it a reliable machine. Plus anything else you guys recommend. . .
