    I solved the problem by closing the gap on the inner and outer magnets the gap was too large just tap the outer magnet in to close the gap it makes the magnetic pull stronger thus engaging the clutch.

    My problem is the four wheel drive isnt working at all. My question is what does the switch do? How does the switch engage the 4wd? I've had my hub off and cant find anything wrong. How do you check switch?

    Thanks a bunch!

Remove the allen plugs and turn the holes downward (6 o'clock position) to drain the old oil. Fill with Polaris Direct Drive Hub fluid and turn the hole to the 8 or 4 o'clock position to remove excess oil.

How do i remove the front brake cable? im having a

Is it off the brake lever on the handle bar? If not shorten the outer cable by turning in the knurled adjuster at the back of the brake lever. This will make it easy to take the inner cable off the brake lever. Once that is off you can work on the hub and you should now be able to swing the inner cable round to slide it off the lever on the hub. If that is damaged it might be difficult to clear the cable and the end nipple, so you will need to open the gaps using a flat screwdriver as a lever. When you put it all back together it will help to lubricate the inner cable with some engine oil which you can run down the inner from the brake lever end. Moving the inner cable up and down helps the oil to travel down the cable.

I have a older Polaris ATV 4x4 - what all do I have to remove to

ahhh i had one of those was a umm Polaris Scrambler 400cc 4x4, mine came in parts kind of though but if you want to pull the whole engine i sugest taking off most of the plastics to make acess easier. then pull off the exhaust, chain covers for the 4x4 and the chain and sprockets. then your air box and carbeurator, then the belt drive from the engine to the transmition pull out the belt, pulleys and the covers. you should now have what resembles the engine and the transmition in the quad left, i think the engine bolts up on rubber stands and mainly by the belt cover, it shouldnt be much work but ounce un bolted should come out whole i think, Make sure you pull out the spark plug and all wiring.

if this doesnt help try emailing me and ill see what i can remember,

2 stroke scrambler revs high on its own

there should be an idle screw on the carb, set it when the choke has come off. You'll recognise it because it will have a spring underneath it.

Compression test on a 2004 polaris scrambler 500

Take out one plug at a time and insert compression gauge. turn the engine over until the gauge reaches its highest point. Reinsert plug and do the same with each plug. The readings should differ no more than 15 lbs. if they do pour about 1 tablespoon of oil in the low compression cylinder, if it raises it to normal you have bad rings if not you need a valve job.

How do you check compression on a 2004 polaris scrambler 500?

Polaris or Sportster the procedure is the same:

1. Run the engine to warm it up to normal temperature.
2. Disconnect and remove both spark plugs.
3. Screw the compression tester into the spark plug hole for either of the cylinders.
4. Hold the throttle open fully, also make certain the choke is open. This is important to get good readings.
5. Crank the engine until there is no further increase in reading at the tester gauge - about 10 seconds of cranking should suffice. Make certain the battery is fully charged to get accurate readings.
6. Record the final reading
7. Repeat for the other cylinder

The difference between the two readings should not be more than 15%.
