It should have a 3 phase charging system. Do an ohms check. look for 3 wires either white or yellow coming out of the motor. more than likely it will be on the left side of the motor ( sitting on the bike ) . put your meter on the horshoe of your meter ( OHMS ) and check wire 1 to 2 1 to 3 then wire 2 to 1 and 2 to 3. you should get numbers of some sort. If you have OFL, OL Out of limits.... on any of the legs ( wires ) then the stator is bad. More than likely it's the regulator. On the regulator , with the meter still in ohms, you'll have a red wire, a black wire. Those are the wires your meter's positive ( red ) lead will hook up to. red on red. then check the other wires ( except the black ) for numbers. then put the black lead on the same wire the red lead was just hooked up to. and do the same test. If you have numbers going both directions then the regulator is bad. You should get numbers one direction and OFL, OL the other way. Then do the same test on the black wire withe same outcome as the first set of Regulator tests.

I have a 2005 Polaris Ranger 500 with Carburetor fuel system. After running for 30 minutes or so it will stop and will not restart. Let it set for an hour or longer, it will restart and run fine.

Sounds like the a component of the ignition system is defective, as to which part you will need to determine that by testing. It can be scanned for codes by the dealer to help in diagnosing.

There are several places you can go on the web that have free atv repair/owners manuals. The owners manuals usually have a wiring schematic on or towards the last page also trouble shooting diagrams with instruction in them.

Type in your search bar: atv polaris (year) model:trailblazer/500cc.

2008 polaris sportsman-charging system not working,is working on batt power only.believe it might be the alt,and or stater not quite sure. used to be auto tech but did not work on atvs much just the ones I...

Polaris uses a stator located under the flywheel for charging. The flywheel is located on the right side of the atv under the pull rope cover. The easiest way to check to make sure the stator is working is to run a continuity and voltage test. There will be 3 yellow wires coming from a grommet on the right back side of the motor. Disconnect these wires at the plug and check each yellow wire for continuity to each other on the component side, not harness side. If I remember right the continuity should be about 20-30 ohms for each. If one is out of spec with the others the stator will need to be replaced. Also check each of the yellow wires for continuity to ground, there should be none. If ground is present the stator will need to be replaced. Finally, start the atv and set your meter to VAC to test alternating current. Test each wire to each other to get the voltage. Voltage from each wire should be no less than about 15 volts at idle, working up to about 30-35 volts at 3-4000 RPM. Try that and if you need any more help let me know, Daniel.
