For a 2001 polaris xplorer, you need to remove the body, the drive belt cover, both the drive clutch and the driven clutch. to remove the drive clutch I went to napa auto parts and bought a 3/4 x6 inch fine threaded bolt. I removed the bolt for the clutch. I then inserted 1 long and 1 short 12mm sockets into the center of the clutch. then threaded the 3/4 bolt until it was tight gave it a few light wacks with a small sledge hammer, turn it some more and it popped right off. alot easier than buying the polaris puller. the driven clutch came right off no problem. you need to remove the back palstic part of the drive belt case. three bolts behind where the driven pulley was and another screw connected to the foot rest. make sure you remove the negative battery terminal. you then need to unscrew the bracket on the back of the starter and remove it. next I stood the quad up on its rear tires and back frame.Put an oil pan orsomething underneath the back frame bar as some of the premix oil leaked while it was in this position. remove the skid plate. pull back the rubber boot on the starterand remove the wire. go back around to the side and remove the two hex headed screws from the back of the starter. at this point the starter housing should come right off. then I pulled it out. I replaced it in reverse. make sure the o-rings are on correctly. I really hope that this helps some of you out there. One note I purchased an aftermarket starter that was connected to a cast aluminum housing that i assume houses the pinion gear. but i had to remove that part and only install the back part of the starter.

I have a 203 Yamaha big bear 400 4x4. The electric start will not turn over the starter. There is a buzzing sound when u press the starter switch. What is next?


...Have your batteries CCA checked...(Cold Cranking Amps) at a battery store, autozone, oreilly's, etc... THIS (CCA) is the true measure of your battery...amperage is what makes the starter turn..NOT voltage.. (amperage pushes voltage)...

My boyfriends 2002 bigdog husky won'tstart he said the starter grinding but won't engage maybe dead battery maybe starter we don't know please help


If it were the battery, the starter wouldn't be making any grinding noise at all. It could be the starter, starter drive, starter solenoid or the teeth ground down on 3 spots on the flywheel.

Behind starter fly wheel only moves back not forward wil not start not start starter seems like its working spins


Disconnect the battery and then carefully remove the starter. Take the unit to a local auto parts dealer for a bench test. Starters have two separate functions, one spins the shaft to crank the engine, the other is called a bendix, which pushes the starter gear out to engage the flywheel, and then after the engine engages, retracts it (except in the case of starter/generator combo units which recharge your battery and power your vehicle's electricals while the engine is running) Always best to get a bench test rather than depending on apparent symptoms.

How do u remove starter on a 1998Polaris 250trailboss


Secrets of Starter Motor and Drive Replacement for 1999 Polaris Scrambler 400 4 X 4 1. Yes you must access both sides of the starter to remove it. Remove clutch covers on left side of machine and covers and pull starter cover on right side of machine. 2. There are two bolts on the clutch pulley side and two bolts under the pull start cover that must be removed to free the starter/starter drive. The starter and drive must be removed and installed from the left (clutch pulley) side together. That's different than the 500. 3. You only need to remove the positive lead from the battery and starter motor post. The starter is grounded by being bolted to frame. 4. The starter is at the bottom of the motor, not like the 500 at all which is accessed through the air box. You can find it by removing the plastic skid plate on the bottom of the engine. You can prop up two wheels on the left side so the machine is 45 degrees tipped up onto both right wheels. Make sure the fuel and oil caps are screwed in tight. 5. It is difficult, but you can remove the two bolts on the left side without removing the actual drive and driven clutches. The clutch cover must be removed though. 6. Under the pull start cover on the right side you can remove the two bolts holding the starter in. One of them is about 4" long and goes through the actual starter motor. It's tough to remove without bending because your u joint partially blocks it. 7. Now you can wiggle the starter and drive out from the left side through the slot in the frame. 8. Decision before you start: How much do I pay for parts? The range is from $50 - $150. Is the expensive part better? This is a difficult repair. Can I really do it myself? If not, what am I willing to pay for labor? I did it for $50, but if it goes out again I will try to find someone who will do the labor for $150 or less. I might go for the more expensive parts if the cheaper ones don't hold out.
