06 Polaris sportsman 500 HO EFI questions


Recommended Posts

Looking at getting an 06 sportsman 500 HO EFI and just was wondering if someone could let me know any issues with them that are common and I’m just a little hesitant cause we have a 2012 sportsman 500 ho butnits got a carb not EFI. Didn’t know if Polaris had issues with the early EFI and the stopped production to work out the bugs or if was just an option they had? Thanks for the info!

I had a 2006 sportsman 700 EFI, I didn't have any problems with the EFI  but I did have problems with the Tbap sensor wires breaking.  Not a big deal to replace but annoying since it goes into limp mode and runs like crap.  Also the hall effect speed sensor goes out often in them, there is a replacement that uses larger gauge wires to help prevent breaking.

If you have any other questions, I replaced a bunch of things on mine when I had it since it was rolled over when I bought it.

      Hi,
      Got a Big Boss produced 2016 YM 2017 that gives DTC 520 285 2 (random)
      What I understand is correlation code for brakesensors, very little information in workshop manual.
      Removed front plastic to discover that no connector was mounted on the brake pressure switch!?
      The only "brake" information seems to come from the micro switch at the brake lever.
      Does anyone know if Polaris does anything special on the 6x6 or had this issue?

      From Arkansas. Just bought a 2012 Gator 850i RSX because I could not pass up the price. BUT it has an idle problem. So, to be honest, I joined just to get a service manual. I have a choice: 1)Buy a hard copy: ~$100; 2)Buy a CD ~$35.00; Get a direct download for free posting 10 times; or get a download for $29.00 (subscription). Haven't decided what to do yet.

      I WANTED TO UPGRADE THE CARBURATOR ON MY 1992 BIG BEAR 350, SO I ORDERED A NEW CARB FROM EBAY.  ACCORDING TO THE WRITE-UP IT WAS A GOOD FIT FOR BIG BEARS FROM 1988 TO 1996.  WHEN I REMOVED MY ORIGINAL CARB I NOTICED THAT IT WAS DIFFERENT FROM THE NEW CARB MY CARB HAD TWO THROTTLE  CABLES THE NEW CARB ONLY HAD ONE CABLE.  HOW CAN I MAKE THIS CARB WORK ON MY TWO CABLE THROTTLE?
