Question about Polaris ATV
I inherited a 97 sportsman 500 that has been sitting in storage for 2 years. I have it running, but it will not go into reverse. I can adjust the linkage so it will, but then it will not go into forward. I will be thankful for any help.
If the forward operation is fine, and you hear a nice cluck going revers, but no drive to the vehicle, and you can push the vehicle forward/backward which R engaged, then you have to open the gearbox: the Shaft Drive, where the reverse gear is sitting, has a pressed on gearwheel. This seems tobe broken, and the friction to the shaft is no longer given. cheap to replace.
