    • Polaris ATV Valve Adjustment

      I've never done this before but after reading a few thread I decided to check my valves for the first time and to my surprise it was much easier than I thought. My bike is a 2005 Sp 500 HO. I first pulled the seat and the right side panel off, and that's it! It wasn't too bad to get at. Next I pulled the spark plug out and removed both the head cover ( 8-8mm bolts) [ATTACH]1021[/ATTACH] then the side cam cover (5-8mm bolts). [ATTACH]1023[/ATTACH] Also remove the plug in the recoil cover (14mm bolt) to see the timming marks. [ATTACH]1022[/ATTACH] Next I turned the engine over with the pull cord untill it was at TDC of the compression stroke. The best was to tell that your at TDC of the compression stroke is to rotate the engine until the timing marks are parallel to rocker cover gasket surface. The cam sprocket locating pin will be facing upward directly in line with the crankshaft to camshaft center line. Now fine adjust by looking into the timing hole in the recoil cover and line up the upside down "T" on the flywheel into the center of the hole. [ATTACH]1023[/ATTACH] Now using a feeler gauge, slide the .006" (.15mm)blade between the top of the valve and the bottom of the adjuster and adjust accordingly [ATTACH]1024[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]1025[/ATTACH] To adjust, Loosen the locknut (10mm) and check clearance with a feeler guage. Clearance should be .006" (.15mm) for both, intake and exhaust valves. Turn the adjuster with a stubby flat blade screwdriver untill the proper clearance is achieved then tighten the locknut (5.8-7.2 ft. lbs) while holding the adjuster in place with the screwdriver. Re-check the clearance with the feeler guage one last time and re-assemble the covers (72 in.lbs) and plugs. The only thing that i noticed was that I had to clean and silicone the side cam cover other than that I found the whole process rather simple. I'd give it a 4 out of 10 on the skill level scale. I hope this helps! Thanks Rich

    • 1996 Polaris Sportsman 500

      I am new here and just wanted to say Hi. I just acquired a 1996 Sportsman 500 that a family member bought new and used for a week each year at a hunting camp. It was always stored inside and serviced regularly. If anyone is aware of anything on this machine that needs special attention I welcome your advice. Thanks

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
       
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!

      I'm wanting to run Shell Rotella T6 synthetic in the 700 Griz but I can only find it in either 0W-40 or 5W-40 weights, and the manual says it's ok to use everything BUT those weights...5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40 and 20W-50.
      Would it be ok to use the Rotella 5W-40 or do I need to stick to what's specified in the manual?
