ATV Polaris 330 (I think trailblazer) wont shift into gears

I have one of these and it always throws my friends for a loop. You have to push the foot brake to get the bike in park or high. It should shift very easy with the brake down, if not check if the spring didn't come off of your brake pedal. I hope this helped.

2000 Polaris Scrambler 500 4x4 ATV won't start? Good battery and no lights with key.

5 years standing is a long time. Carburetor float will be stuck. Pull the plugs and see if they are wet and also if you have a spark. Strip and clean carb and jets. Check fuel tap and fuel delivery. Drain any fuel and replace with new. Replace the spark plug. No lights is odd. Check if there are fuses?

1994 300 4x4 2 stroke, where do you fill the

2-stroke gasoline engines don't use a reserve of oil in the crankcase the way 4-stroke engines do. Instead, you add oil to the gasoline to ensure lubrication of the engine. The correct ratio to mix would be in the owner's manual.

My 1999 polaris explorer will not go into 4 wheel

If your speedometer is broken then your AWD will not work. You can do 2 things

1. Replace the Speedometer
2. Remove the 6 pin plug from your speedometer
On the plug, short the brown/Brown White wires together and
tape it up good.
Do not reconnect the plug.
You will lose the function of the speedometer but your AWD will work.

I have a 1997 Explorer 400, pulled clutch and inner cover, right below oil pump inside it has a couple broken pieces.

I presume You mean a Polaris Explorer 400 ATV, rather than a Ford Explorer 4.0 litre? I did some edits to fill in the blanks, but Fixya have mixed up the image for Polaris Pool Cleaners :>) Your oil pump is important, so you need to check inside or just replace it. The other place to watch for pieces of aluminium casting is around bearings and seals. If they fail, the damage can be great, but castings can be filled and machined.

2008 Sportsman. Why is it running rough?

The 20 Amp fuse (diagram shows only one 20A) feeds ignition coil and fuel pump circuits. With a current probe measure the two circuits separately to identify which is most probable cause.

Check battery voltage with engine running. It should be well over 13 VDC.

If it will run for a few minutes, you might get by with a touch test of the ignition coil and fuel pump. If one is markedly hot, the heat likely identifies the culprit. But a current probe is the tool necessary if you want to avoid part$ swapping.

Recommend fuel pressure check also. Eccessively high pressure could be problematic and low pressure would further implicate fuel pump.

2011 550efi quad. How can I adjust throttle cable?

This will depend on how much you need to adjust it. Small amounts can be made using the cable sleeve adjusters. At each end of the cable sleeve is a nut shaped connector. If there is a small thin nut slacken it a couple of turns. Wind the larger nut out to tighten it and In to slacken. Use a wrench, (spanner), to hold the large nut still and re-tighten the small nut to lock it. Some versions don't have the smaller lock nut so you just wind them in or out. If you need to move it a large amount it might be easier to just replace the whole cable.

My 2010 Polaris Ranger 400 has no power.

My Polaris 500 started quitting on me. It turned out to be corrosion on the left handle bar kill switch wiring. After repairing, I pulled apart many wiring connectors and filled them with dielectric (does not conduct electricity) grease to make them resistant to water and corrosion.

2001 Sportsman 500. where can I get a free wiring diagram?

In 2000 they had two - the 'early' and the 'late' 2000 diagram - pretty sure the late diagram would be close to exact to the 2001/definitely didn't reinvent the wheel between 2000 and 2001 - good luck 2001-polaris-sportsman-500-find-free-1f2oxvfxqitodvwkcjkh1pmb-4-0.png 2001-polaris-sportsman-500-find-free-1f2oxvfxqitodvwkcjkh1pmb-4-2.png
