2004 sportsman 400 4x4 shifts late and hard going into high end

2004 sportsman 400 4x4 shifts hard going into second gear and will not upshift on inclines unless engine revs to nearly 6000 rpm drive clutch and drive belt were replaced and it did not help. The bike was serviced using polaris fluids always. With the pully cover off the engine (drive clutch and crankshaft) appear to move towards the back of the bike as the pullys move in and out. is this movement normal or is the entire problem caused by the motor mounts?

Polaris drives are variable speed. they only have 2 ranges plus reverse. it sounds like either the driven clutch is slipping or the trans is slipping. the gear cogs inside may not be locking in properly and the shifter rods may need adjustment.

I have a 2002 suzuki ozark 250 2x4 that is very hard to up shift.


Hey Barry, has the quad been flipped onto the left side,? Sounds like you may have a bent shift shaft...one other possibility is the shifter needs adjusting (some newer engines do not have adjustments). I am guessing it is easy to down shift? If the shift shaft is bent.. be careful , you can easily crack the engine case!!

Tranny works, shifter wont shift the gears. how to fix?


My 2005 Polaris ATP 500 requires I depress the right foot brake while shifting into reverse or down into low range. Perhaps some adjustment on the foot brake to make this work. Also check linkage to make sure it is not binding. Others say if the idle speed is too high, you may not be able to shift. Try shifting with the engine off to see if it goes into the gears, using the foot brake. If yes, try again while at low idle speed.

What can I do to fix the suspendion and shifting?


for the shifting there are 2 sensors, one on the front of the motor and one on the (left side) back of the motor. if you replace them make sure the one on the (left side) back of the motor is not put in upside down. if you change it and it will not shift at all then you have it in upside down.

usually that fixes it or if you do a oil change with a flush that sometimes helps too..

as for the suspension you need to check to make sure the shock is not leaking, that the rear axle nuts are all tight and the swing arm bolt and linkage bolts are all tight. hard to diagnose without seeing it.

2004 sportsman 400 4x4 shuts off after running for while. Blow air into the flue tank and will run again.


It appears that you have fuel venting problem or a float level set too high. Check the entire fuel system for kinked / blocked fuel lines/ filters and check the float level or fuel manifold pressure if it has one.

Atv transmission


sounds like the connecting rod on the crankshaft.
i would inspect the primary clutch first before an engine teardown. Sometimes the engine shifts on the engine mounts and the clutch hits the cover, also check to make sure belt is not slapping around in cover.
