SOURCE: Polaris 380 wheels not moving

Here are some things to check: 1.  There are belts inside the unit that drive the wheels.  These belts often fail (shred) and must be replaced. 2.  There is a paddlewheel that drives the turbine that turns the wheels.  If the jet that drives the turbine is clogged, then the paddlewheel will not move and the wheels will not turn. 3.  There is a water management system inside the bottom of the unit.  It looks like a bunch of little hoses.  If one of these hoses comes loose, then the water pressure will escape inside the unit and will not be sufficient to drive the wheels.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: My polaris 380 wheels won't turn. the belt is

If the wheels don't turn there may be sand in the notches on the wheels, the notches may be worn off, if their is sand or dirt in the paddel wheel jet that will keep the unit from turning and again no wheel movement. All of these problems they can check in your local pool store. Stores will generely check your unit out and fix what is needed for just the price of parts to fix it when you bring it into the store.
If you have no water flow to the unit this will also stop things from working so be sure to check your finger screen before you do anything.

What year model vin 1563339 polaris 250 trail boss

thats not enough characters to be a proper VIN you should have 17 numbers/letters and the 10th digit will tell you the year. The VIN should be stamped in the neck of the frame. If your find the whole number I can break it down for you.

I bought a 1995 Polaris Sportsman they put in a different engine in it will try to run. I is like it is out of time. and how can I find out what the engine came out of it is a Polaris engine and it is a...

Some models have a reverse gear lock on them which will make them stop when the engine light is 'on'. If the engine used was one of these and yours didn't have the reverse gear safety on it that could be your problem. A Polaris dealer will be able to tell you from the engine number what year it is. If it is the same year and model, it could be the timing adjustment. If you validate the timing adjustment, then its the carburetor. Rebuild it.

I have a Polaris, Big Boss 500 Model # 1341184 could you tell me the year of manufacture

I think you are just reading the part number off the trans case. That part number is from about 1997 as a guess. It spanned more years that just that. So late 1990's

I have a 2001 Polaris Sportsman 500. When I turn the 4-wheel drive switch on it does not engage the 4-wheel drive. Does it have a fuse? If so can you tell where it is located?

Does the awd switch light up? You have to check it with the ignition on and the machine in gear. If it doesn't light up, you're not getting power to the switch and the problem could be the switch down by the gear shifter or worn contacts inside the shifting housing. Also check to see if you have power running down the wires to the front hubs

To identify what year model it is you will have to locate the engine&/or frame number/s & contact your local polaris dealer. They can use the number/s to identify your model

How do I tell if my 250 polaris atv is a two stroke or a four stroke other then sound

Does it have valves? or acess to adjust them? If it does it's a 4 stroke. If you have to mix the gas as with a oil and gas mix it's a 2 stroke.  A 2 stroke has a smaller head than a 4 stroke.
