SOURCE: replace drive belt on polaris sportsman 500 1996

Usually a simple process. Remove the large oblong shaped cover on the left side of the engine.inside is the primary (small pulley) and secondary(large pulley) drive with the drive belt running in between them.Force the large pulley apart(best done by hand) allowing the belt to drop down to its center and then using the resulting slack to pull the belt over the primary pulley and thus removing it.Rotating the pulley(s) by hand may aid in this process.(think about how a bicycle chain is put back into place after it has fallen off.Same basic principle) Putting the new belt in place Reopen the large drive again(spreading it apart) and place the belt onto it first then over the primary.(again turning it by hand much like the bicycle idea).When all is said and done check the seal on the cover and make sure it is in place(if damaged replace it.This is very important to help keep contaminants and water out of this area.)and replace the cover tightening the bolts from the middle outward towards the ends.This will also help seal it up properly.

SOURCE: sportsman 500 transmission trouble.

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.

Could be a vacuum leak in the intake tract. Try spraying carb cleaner with the straw that come with can around the intake and carb area. If there is a leak, engine speed well change.

I have a 08 Sportsman 500HO which the motor starts cutting out between 3600-4600 RPM's


Hi Tom:
Sounds like a challenge.
I'd probably check the ignition system if I thought the fuel supply was working properly.
Replace spark plugs - test run
If there is a manual hi speed adjust screw on the carb, have you tried adjusting it at high RPM?
reply as a comment to this post and I'll try to help.

2010 sportsman 500 hd runs then dies turns over won't start


My opinion, it's running rich and letting it idle for 5 minutes doesn't help. Whether it's carbed or EFI, when the machine is cold, it needs more fuel. As engine temperature increases, it doesn't need as much fuel, and the carbon that started building up on the plug is burned back off. When a machine isn't ran for very long, carbon deposits continue to build on the plug. The carb itself may need to be rejetted/adjusted, it it's running rich,
