Have a 2004 sportsman 500 HO , was working fine, decided to attach a trickle charger(the correct way) onto a newer battery, after a couple of weeks went to start it and no power to speedometer nor would start, but could turn lights on from switches. I put battery charger on and said fully charged. Disconnected positive led from battery and reconnected them, seemed to correct problem, ran the machine for a while then shut it off, and same problem started again,(did not disconnect battery again, but charger said full and lights would work)Any thoughts on where I should go from here?
Polaris Off-Road 2023 Lineup Highlighted by Rider-Inspired Updates, Dynamic New Trims & Industry-First Connected Vehicle Features
New RIDE COMMAND+ Enhances the Ownership Experience with Connected Vehicle Features, Provides Convenient Access to Vehicle’s Health and Location via Smartphone or Mobile Device
New GENERAL XP 1000 Sport Trim Opens the Door for More Riders to Get In & Experience Adventure; A Host of Rider-Inspired Updates Allow Riders to Feel the Thrill & Get More Done
-Polaris Off-Road, the world leader in powersports and innovation, today announced its 2023 lineup, comprising a dynamic mix of rider-inspired vehicle updates, fresh new looks, and the expansion of RIDE COMMAND+ -- a mobile-app that builds off its RIDE COMMAND technology to offer industry-first connected vehicle services.
“Over the last year, we’ve accelerated our pursuit to deliver the vehicles and performance our customers ask for. Whether it be the next-level performance capabilities of the RZR Turbo R and RZR Pro R, or the technologically advanced, all-electric RANGER XP Kinetic – we continuously raise the bar and set industry standards,” said Steve Menneto, President of Polaris Off-Road. “As the leader in off-road, we continue to innovate and evolve our lineup to serve a broad array of riders. The 2023 model year lineup is the latest example of our team’s ongoing commitment to answer the call from our riders.”
For thrill-seekers, the 2023 RZR lineup offers an updated color mix and fresh trim offerings, including a meaner, blacked-out take on the dune-dominating RZR Turbo R. For customers hungry for adventure, there’s the all-new GENERAL XP 1000 Sport—delivering strong, powerful trail performance at a great price. Already the ultimate machine for those wanting to get more done on the job, the RANGER XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss Edition expands its capabilities with a host of work-enhancing new features. And for the ATV community, Sportsman models offer exciting new color options, along with new CV guards on specific models for added durability.
Continuing its ongoing efforts to enhance the ownership experience, Polaris is significantly expanding its RIDE COMMAND service with the all-new RIDE COMMAND+. Building on RIDE COMMAND’s existing suite of industry-leading features, RIDE COMMAND+ helps riders stay connected to their vehicle through a robust, mobile-enabled service that provides a whole new level of vehicle information, security, and control. RIDE COMMAND+ is accessed through the Polaris app, RIDE COMMAND website, or the in-vehicle display system.
“Pushing forward with industry-first technologies has been a cornerstone of our success,” Menneto continued. “With RIDE COMMAND+, we’re unlocking a new wave of innovation for the off-road market that enables owners to manage and maximize their vehicle and riding experience through connected vehicle technology.”
From the latest technology to updates and enhancements that will appeal to a broad range of off-road riders, the Polaris Off-Road 2023 model year lineup includes:
RIDE COMMAND+ features vehicle-to-cellular connectivity that allows riders to conveniently check on the current vehicle’s status, while its Vehicle Health feature will run issue diagnostic reports and monitor fuel/charge levels to confirm the vehicle’s readiness. The RIDE COMMAND+ Vehicle Locator will be an extremely beneficial feature for hunters, or anyone enjoying the outdoors, when having to leave their vehicle parked. The Vehicle Locator feature delivers a pinpoint location to the machine. RIDE COMMAND+ delivers enhanced mobile technology for riders to connect, drive and adventure.
Adding to an already-robust set of offerings, Polaris will continue to expand the RIDE COMMAND+ service with even more industry-leading features using Over the Air (OTA) updates. Coming later in 2022, RIDE COMMAND+ will offer its riders added security with Location and Bump Alerts. Bump Alert, a 24/7 monitoring feature, will send a notification any time the vehicle has been bumped or moved. If moved, the Vehicle Locator feature will provide its latest coordinates. In addition, Polaris will introduce Ride Tracking+, where riders can automatically track their rides using the vehicle’s GPS location without having to use their mobile phone’s data. After the ride, riders will be able to generate a full report from the day’s ride, including time logged, miles traveled, waypoints and elevation changes. The report is a fun and helpful tool to not only relive the ride, but to plan future trips.
RIDE COMMAND+ will launch standard on all 2023 RANGER XP Kinetic models and all 2023 RANGER XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss Edition models. The service is available as an accessory add-on for all trims in the following 2023 models: RANGER 1000, RANGER XP 1000, RANGER 570, Sportsman 570, Sportsman 450, Sportsman 850 and Sportsman XP 1000. Polaris plans to further roll out vehicle compatibility for RIDE COMMAND+.
Riders can access the new service via the Polaris mobile app, web, or the in-vehicle, seven-inch touchscreen display system. Riders will receive a 36-month trial of RIDE COMMAND+ when purchasing the stock models standard with the service. Riders adding RIDE COMMAND+ via accessory will receive a 12-month trial. At the conclusion of each trial period, riders can sign up and continue the service for $99/year.
To activate RIDE COMMAND+, riders must download and login to the Polaris app and add the connected vehicle to their digital garage.
RANGER continues to set the bar high with several rider-inspired upgrades across its 2023 lineup.
The 2023 RANGER XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss comes packed with new upgrades specifically designed to meet the demands of hardworking riders. The NorthStar Trail Boss gets a new LED rear work light to illuminate the bed of the vehicle and make it easier to work in low-light conditions.

Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.
It’s been a year of swapping and fixing and swapping and fixing and swapping….
Last year I bought a KFX80 mouse condominium for $500,
fixed it and swapped for a Blaster,
fixed that and swapped for a LT230s,
straightened that out and swapped for an ‘07 KX 85,
cleaned THAT up and traded it for a clapped out LTZ400 with OMF bead locks, ELKA shocks, HotCams, ProTaper bars,
and a serious case of “PO had no clue what they were doing”.
I recently posted about finishing up that LT160/230,
well almost finished - timing was off for some reason, but before I could get it figured out I found someone to swap it with for a 94 XR200R with a strange ticking in the head.
Replaced it’s timing chain and guides, re-tensioned, popped out the valves and cleaned them all up, all back together and the ticking persists. Flipping thru the Clymer manual that came with it I found a stacked head gasket tucked inside. And saw a green paper one on the bike. 💡
So anyway, I traded it to someone more inclined toward two-wheeled adventures for an awfully clapped out DVX400 with a lot of Alba’s finest red anodized aluminum ding dongs all over it. And a Houser chromoly stem! AND a big bore kit (JE Piston).
PO couldn’t get it to run, which turned out to be a combination of 4 stripped threads in the cam journals, and a “twist n’ tape” job on the damn stator wires. 😳😝🤣
After a few weeks of wrenching and part swapping and fixing and sweating and swearing and parting out - I nearly have a drivable quad… and a pretty damned nice one for my tastes at least.
Thinking about sinking a few hundred Kold Kutters into this extra set of tires and having a go at the ice this winter
