With the engine NOT running, have a friend ROCK the bike forward and backward while you sit on the bike applying pressure to the shifter

You might have a bad connector unit. The clue is still the 'moving of the wiring harness kills the engine'.

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.

SOURCE: Sportsman 500 HO, stuck in reverse

Solution#1 worked perfectly. It only took about 15 minutes all together.
the side panel removes easily. It just slides out of the other panel. Once you have removed the handle (Shifter) and the other two bracket bolts, just place it back into the shifter housing and move it around. I was amazed at how easy this was to repair. I also turned the ignition to the on position to see if it was changing gears and it was.
Solution #1 repost originally posted by Jpach
I tried this today and it worked. Pull the sideplate from the ATV so that you have access to the gear shifter assembly. Unbolt the gearshift assembly from the mounting bracket. There are two bolts at the rear near the two rods that exit the assembly and three on the bottom. When the bolts are out, remove the assembly from the mounting bracket. Hold it in your hand and move the shift lever through all of the positions. This won't actually shift the transmission, but it should free up the rods in the assembly. Remount the assembly with the five bolts and it should now be able to shift out of reverse.

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

I parked my Polaris 500 about a year ago just put new battery in started right up but doesn't go into foward or reverse


If it is stuck, try to rock it back and forth while attempting to shift. This has worked for me in the past. It sounds like oil wasn't replaced after going through mud / water before storing.
