SOURCE: replace drive belt on polaris sportsman 500 1996

Usually a simple process. Remove the large oblong shaped cover on the left side of the engine.inside is the primary (small pulley) and secondary(large pulley) drive with the drive belt running in between them.Force the large pulley apart(best done by hand) allowing the belt to drop down to its center and then using the resulting slack to pull the belt over the primary pulley and thus removing it.Rotating the pulley(s) by hand may aid in this process.(think about how a bicycle chain is put back into place after it has fallen off.Same basic principle) Putting the new belt in place Reopen the large drive again(spreading it apart) and place the belt onto it first then over the primary.(again turning it by hand much like the bicycle idea).When all is said and done check the seal on the cover and make sure it is in place(if damaged replace it.This is very important to help keep contaminants and water out of this area.)and replace the cover tightening the bolts from the middle outward towards the ends.This will also help seal it up properly.

SOURCE: polaris 500 sportsman awd not working

the usual problem with those is either the switch itself or the magnetic hubs at the front wheels
The factory service manual will tell you how to check both

SOURCE: Polaris 1999 Sportsman 500. Had no fire. Replaced

this sounds crazy but is your speedometer in working order. i have a 99 also and i didnt get any spark one day just quit. after a couple days of trying things i read on the internet about if your speedometer is not working and cutting on or off it will short out the spark and also make the 4 wheel drive not work. i unhooked the speedo and no problems since.

SOURCE: Service manual for a 2006 500 Polaris Sportsman HO

I have a 2006 Sportstman 500HO ATV, EFI. Sometimes it will run 100% correct, other times it will start, idle fine but then when giving it throttle will will start to surge almost like it's hitting a rev limited. Sometimes it will backfire and stall. I already replaced fuel filter, flushed the fuel lines and gave it fresh gas and installed a new spark plug, but no good. I also checked the throttle switch and it's not making contact to stall it. I download the service manaul and tested each sensor and they tested fine which is probablt why I get no check engine light.
This ATV is mainly used to plow snow in my driveway, no salt. It's used around my property but very lightly. It's still as clean as it was when I bought it and it doesn't have but about 40 hours on it.

If your engine is very, very cold, sub-zero temperatures, the oil may be affected. If it was working fine before and the only difference is the temperature, then the oil viscosity may be too thick to flow properly. (In Siberia, auto oil pans are heated with hand torches after stopping, so the oil with flow again.)

change oil ? water wont compress!!! prolly gallded all internal parts . at this point i would try transmission fluid. drain oil and check for metal or allum. shavings. refill w/trans fluid , remove spark plug , add tfluid in very small amt to cyl. replace plug.start briefly dont rev eng at all . let idle if it will. maybe 1 to 2 mins. shut off let complete cool down . restart again w/same fluid. same as b4. stop drain fluid . smell t.fluid if burnt or not. flush cranckcase w/new oil. hope for the best here. refill eng to proper level and p++ y. has worked for me but wasnt severe as yours sounds to be. good luck let me know if it helps or not. be sure ALL TRANS FLUID IS GONE FROM ENG. B4 new oil is put in . replace oil filter too b4 trans fluid is added and after tfluid is emptied.

Oil change on 2006 Yamaha Bruin 250


First off, there is no oil filter. The oil drain plug is a square ended bolt, usually found on the front or side of the lower part of the motor. Oil type, refer to owners manual, or call dealer.
