Sons polaris 800 twin sportsman two seater 24 volt was riding fine in all gears and now he can only go in reverse

this could either be the that one of the motors has died or the connecter on the bottom of the shifter switch has come disconnected, i'd probably check the shifter switch first, you'll have to take out the battery and then the black plastic panel by the battery this will give you access to where the shiter assembly is and then underneath the four wheeler you'll have to remove the two screws that hold the shifter assembly in and then verify that the two plugs are plugged into the bottom of the shifter assembley

My sons 800 sportsman twin runs for a few minutes and stops. after waiting for a bit it runs again and starts all aover again

The Peg Perego sportsman twin 800's are overheating the protection module. After it cools, it works again. They know about the problem and admitted it. Under warranty they just shipped me a new poly switch, a new mainboard and TWO new motors WITH gearboxes for free. (Mines 6 months old). Working on installing the parts now. It is NOT a battery problem but something to do with the 24 volt motors overloading the electrical system.

How do you bypass override switch on Peg per ego polaris Sportsman 800 twin? It keeps shutting off the vehicle.

Hey, I found the manual here:


If you're talking about the low and high speed settings, it says there is a screw on the side of the pedal, it's on page 5 steps 51 and 52.


There have been shut off problems with this device that the customer service suggests is due to the battery.  From what I read there are no override switches for this.  I hope this helps.

This 800 sportsman will run for a few minuetes then quit! The battery is putting out plenty of volts.26.8 to be exact.How do you fix this? I bet Peg pegro does not have a fix for this.I do-Can you say...

The polaris 800's have a known issue with the thermal switches over heating, then they cut out after 10 minutes then after you wait about 5 minutes they come back on. Peg perego has a replacement kit with contains a new circuit board, thermals switches and two new 350 watt motors, I personally have replaced about 15 of them, its a pretty simple process
