Question about Polaris ATV
I have a 2004 Polaris 400 4x4 ATV. Very low mileage and very few hours on it. (due to illness) I'm better now, but ATV won't start. Already changed out the starter selenoid and have purchased new starter and bendix. Need to know how to get old starter out. Is the rope pully for manual starting spring loaded? I'm wondering if I need to take it out & if so, is it going to pop open and become yet another problem?

I have polaris 250 trailblazer,2001. If you'rs is like mine, you have to loosten those 2 vertical bolts behind the axel on the very back of the swing arm, I don't know if you have to or not but I removed the brake caliper & loostened The 2 bolts holding the protector plate. Then you turn the axel between the 2 vert. bolts. Remember, When you'r machine is in gear the chain is tighter than when not in gear so leave a little play. Good luck, & be safe!

NOT SURE IF THIS WILL HELP BUT I HAVE A 2004 POLARIS PREDATOR 500 AND IT HAD THE SAME PROBLEM! IT TURNS OUT THAT IT WAS A RELAY BOX LOCATED ON THE BATTERY TRAY.

SOURCE: loose chain
I had a few chain driven polaris atv's they tension when weight is on the quad, the rear arm pivots and applies tension to the chain , other then that there should just be guides for the chain. If the chain is still loose with operator weight the chain may have play in the pins and need replaced.

Perhaps the parts manual will be usefull also.
First you have to register you it is free.
Second select a product line, manual type and year .
