Question about Polaris ATV

1 Answer

Sportsman 500 transmission trouble.

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.

Hi my name is cody and I am having trouble cranking and the electrical wiring on my 1998 Polaris sportsman 500 4x4


Hey Cody - what are the exact symptoms. And can you do a quick test - please turn the bike over for a few revolutions 2 or 3 times. Take the plug out. Just to make sure it's getting the fuel and getting wet. Wiring on those is a breeze - If you'll let me know exact issues and verify you've got fuel in the chamber - we can go from there. Here's a routing so that you're not looking for components -

name-cody-am-having-trouble-cranking-4n3y21cmsqpgtsjshk50qfrx-3-2.png

The part numbers go far below the diagram these 2 copies have the rest of the parts along with numbers.

And this link will take you straight to all of the diagrams for that 98 Sportsman. Just scroll up to 'change assembly' and you can choose any area to view.

Will a 2002 Polaris sportsman ho 500motor and all accessories fit onto a 2002 polaris 700 sportsman frame


They're not compatible - officially. May just depend on how willing you are to make it work. Either way - the 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700 shows as only being compatible with the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Sportsman 700 & 600 - both models both years. Now - they look pretty close, but if you cross check (Looks like Polaris did a mid-model swap or something). There are (2) frames listed for the 2002 Polaris Sportsman 500 -
First Option - built before 9/3/01 Part # 1013325-067
01 - 02 SPORTSMAN 400
01 - 02 SPORTSMAN 500
01 WORKER 500

SECOND OPTION/AFTER 9.3.01 1013729-067
- JUST THE 02 SPORTSMAN 500

I attached the link to the schematic for you to see. To do a cross reference, copy the part number instead of pressing it (clicking on the part # a lot of the times doesn't show you full compatiblity). Then on the top banner, click OEM Genuine Parts, Polaris, ATV - there will be a parts search bar on the right hand side - paste your part # there and click search. If there are group compatibilities that they've added over time you'll see more than one 'where used' - just click on each one if you have to, but you'll see all compatible models.

copy part number
go back to page one of OEM Polaris parts
paste in search box
click on 'where used' in red to the right of the listing. If more than one - notate each as you go - but you'll see everywhere it was used. I've got a frame from a 2000 Polaris Expedition 425 4x4 with swingarm attached - I'd sell basically for shipping cost on ebay - if you're close to North Florida and in the area - I'd give it to you for $50, FYI. Here's a link to the listing and pictures in there - looks like a copy of the sportsman. If you get to zooming in on both and this looks like a match let me know. And a lot of parts were interchangeable for years on top of years from some parts - check out my ebay store (It's not finished but a lot of parts are on their) subscribe as a follower - and I'll give you 30% off your first order as a Thank You. I price to sell and compete, by the way - free shipping on almost everything - and all you have to do is shop around on there to see where I stand. 17 South Industries, LLC - I could use some help just gettting the name out there and word of mouth. All the best - Good Luck

2001 Sportsman 500. Where can I get a wiring diagram?


I'm attaching a picture that has 2 wiring diagrams side by side. The left side is the 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 (Early) wiring diagram and the right side is the 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 (Late). The Late wiring diagram for 2000 is more than likely either the same or extremely close to the 2001. And they may have just carried it over (the late wiring diagram). I've got a lot of hours on ATV's and Polaris especially - they stuck with what worked and didn't reinvent the wheel from one year to the next (usually). This may not be exact - but it should be extremely close. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

All The Best, Justin Lee
