Hey Troy,
Sorry to hear about your trouble. It sounds like you increased the angle at the CV joint on your shafts. A longer shaft may not alleviate the problem. The big thing with a lift kit on your ATV is making sure the design of the kit is sound. And that it was installed properly.
Now it's quite possible you simply had a manufacture defective boot. And a new one is all you need. And that should be under warranty. I would certainly go back to the installer and show them the trouble you are having. With the lift kit, I feel you should have new shafts to meet the design requirements. Or your stock shafts may need to be modified. I hope all you really need is a better boot. And I hope this info gets you back to riding soon.

Take care.

Wont start , n when i push the thotle it turns off what can i do ??


sounds like you need a new camshaft and exhaust rocker arm. they are a very common problem and i had 2 sportsmans that did exactly the same thing. you can buy high quality forged camshafts on ebay that will not wear out like stock polaris or cheap aftermarket cams.
