I am new to this forum, have been atving for 3 yrs. recently got rid of my old 2006 Yamaha Kodiak , bought an new 2016 570 sportsman , I noticed that it was rather open in the front portion of the bike , so I installed alum. checker plate to protect the battery and rad . hose. but I did not think to protect the exposed sides of the rad. as I live in northern british Columbia and we drive on old logging roads and we clear a lot of trails. on my 3 rd ride I got a stick thru the rad, and into the elec. fan . 2 rides later the fan broke apart. but luckily I ahd since put on home made side guards out of sheet metal .. this actually created better air flow and kept the machine cooler, but my problem is with polaris, they installed side rad guards on the 2014 models- the 2015 models, then took them off for 2016 , I have seen lots of complaints about over heating, as a result of no air flow across the bike , due to no guards, then I get a picture of a 2016.5 limited edtion Canadian 570 that has rad. side guards, I put in an appeal and they will not come good for the fan and motor, I like the bike a lot , but am not very happy with polaris and their stupid idea to remove the side guards, not everyone drives on logging roads
This is more of an informational fix I wanted to share..
My Grizzly has been getting harder and harder to shift this winter and today was completely stuck and I needed to plow the few inches that came down this morning. First thought...oh no, tranny...but it’s winter and maybe it’s iced up. I pulled off the plastic to see what was going on and indeed I did find the drain tube iced up.
I took the blow dryer out and de-iced it. Quick fix, I never really thought about the shifter drain tube icing up before, shifts like new!
How do I replace the pinion clutch shaft in a 1987 Suzuki LT230 quadrunner? It starts up on the first kick but when I put it in gear it wants to kick up. I can give it gas and put it in gear but my clutch lever isn’t doing anything. SOS
The bike will go into gear after monkeying with the shift lever but then it's slow to engage. Feels like the clutch is weak. I've pulled the belt cover off and belt looks fine. Should i pull the sheave and regrease roller weights? change Trans fluid? Anyone had this issue?
Complete Grizzly build
I built this Grizzly to preform at top ability in the mud! There is a few things that i am looking to change on the grizzly but well see!

I recently bought a 2004 polaris sportsman 400 that is missing a radiator guard and was wondering whether this one from 600 would work. Thanks
Polaris Sportsman 600 4x4 2003 Front Bumper Radiator Guard 9507 | eBay
If not what would work, I know that sportsman 500 works but I can't find any either.
Does anyone know where i can buy a radiator for a Polaris 500 sportsman? Preferably an aftermarket since mostly what i find is a factory part for 379 dollars?
It just had to happen, the day after Thanksgiving, and yes i have plenty to be thankful for, however my radiator started steaming and it took me a while to find out where. So now i need a new one or maybe get it repaired?
How was Thanksgiving for everyone?

POLARIS RZR GAINS 53 PERCENT MORE COOLANT CAPACITY WITH FLUIDYNE® POWERSPORTS RADIATORSAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (July 16, 2009) - Peak engine performance is only achieved at optimal coolant temperatures.Like many UTV motors, the RZRs 760cc Twin sometimes struggles to accelerate its half-ton of side-by-side fun and remain properly cooled in less-than-optimal conditions, such as when slogging through
If you have liquid cooled or an oil cooled atv, here is a easy tip about cleaning the out side of the radiator or oil cooler.Especially if you have a fan on it. Take the nozzle off you garden hose and spray the radiator or oil cooler from the back side. Opposite direction of air flow.I was talking to a Honda mechanic about 5 years ago, they were having to replace Ruby trannys because of mud and dust plugging the fins of the radiator. I told them about how my dad cleans the radiator on vehicles. To make a long story short they told a guy who was on his 3rd tranny about that. He rod in nothing but mud. He tried this method and it works really good. I also found out it helped my friend with his Polaris's over heating problem. Dust was plugging it up. Hope this helps someone out there. We spend are had earned money on our toys. Hope this helps make someones quad last longer.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and gets some riding time in!!!!!!!!!!!!! :biggrin: :wink:
