You will have to get the cooling fan working before you look any further. It may be best to have a coolant system pressure test and a compression test done to eliminate engine fault also

Polaris sportsman 500 HO shows hot check engin? what must i do


check your timing advance. It may be advanced a little too much. If that is okay, then make sure your spark plug is the proper one and not a sub. Most ATV's use DENSO plugs and these seem to work the best. (Having a spark with a higher heat range will cause the overheat condition). The other thing is your mixture... you may be running a tad rich.. lean it up 1/8 of a turn. Finally, remove the exhaust pipe and see if they is carbon build-up at the exhaust port... lean it over and remove all you can, careful not to allow any to fall into the engine. (Blocking the exhaust will cause a dramatic temperature increase.)

Why does the engine load up at higher rpms?


you might have a dirty carb.check the big jet in there as it might have a blockage.sounds like you have enough gas going through the small jet to start the quad and for slow speed but when you want to give it good power, it starts to bog down.do the carb thing first

2008 polaris 800 sportsman touring wont engage in 4x4 high without holding in the override button


try this first right beside the reverse button u will see 2 sets of wires clipped into the control be careful and pull these 2 apart u will see they will be all corroded up clean them up and dielectric them see if that works its a easy fix maybe

if that doesnt work try this...

I replaced the speed sensor, got my speedo operation back, no more intermittent 4x4 issues, and no more stalling in reverse! It's actually quite annoying how many things are tied into that one sensor. Makes for a frustrating trip out of the bush if it starts acting up on the trail (like mine did). Good luck with your repairs!
