Have a 2001 polaris sportsman 500 4x4 atv and when I put coolant in the radiator it starts leaking from the exhaust. The valves are sealed but it stopped making compression. Do I need to just replace the head? I just rebuilt the hole top end and this is the only thing +valves that I have not replaced and was wondering if that is why it's not starting up. Need answers please.
Hey so i sold my 04 rubicon and wanted something new so i went to NC and bought a '13 scrambler 850XP LE EPS. love it the only issues with it when i bought it were a leak in the front tire and the mice had chewed through one of the spark plug wires. currently have a substitute hooking the chewed end to the ignition coil so itll run on both cylinders however im having an issue finding a replacement coil wire for it and was wondering if yall had any advice. i need the longer of the two coil wires and i can only find the shorter one online. will throw up some pics of it when i can

I recently purchased a 2000 polaris xplorer 400 4x4. When I bought it the starter was bad, speedometer didn't work, and it had been sitting for 5 years. I replaced the battery, and starter. Changed all fluids, and got it running correctly. Then replaced the speedometer in an attempt to make sure the awd would be available when needed. And took it out for a couple hour ride with a buddy.
It ran great that ride with no serious problems just a little carb issues which I was able to take care of on the trails. Then a couple days later I decided to take it out for a ride by myself, again ran great no issues other than a couple times it seemed to cough and then take off again. That day when I was loading it I noticed coolant dripping onto the trailer and the overflow bottle was empty.
Got home and decided to drain the counter balancer, when I did that I got about 3 cups of coolant. Im guessing that it needs new seals and all for the water pump.
My question is how difficult is it to do the water pump and should I attempt it or should I send it down the road to the polaris dealership to get it done?
Saw this in the news...was this anyone here????? 🤔
13 ATVs and dirt bikes impounded from N.J. wildlife area. Riders face list of charges.
State officials charged several people with various violations and impounded their ATVs and dirt bikes last weekend from the Greenwood Forest Wildlife Management Area in Ocean County, authorities said.
Police officers with the state’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation were investigating illegal off-road vehicle use in the management area on Saturday, July 25 when two ATV riders tried to flee, officials said.
When officers caught up with them, they issued summonses for criminal obstruction, interference with the duties of a conservation police officer, and violations of wildlife management area use. The two ATVs were impounded, police said.
The next day, a group of ATV and dirt bike riders from northern New Jersey drove past several “NO ATV” signs posted in the wildlife area known as “clay holes.”
Clay holes, or “blue holes” are former gravel or sand mines filled with water. They are popular, although dangerous, destinations for teenagers and adults looking to beat the summer heat.
Officers issued summonses to the riders for illegally operating off-road vehicles and for driving unregistered vehicles. They also wrote tickets for illegal swimming, possession of alcohol and entering a restricted area.
In all, 13 ATVs and dirt bikes were impounded. The owners are facing fines starting at $274, and impound, towing and storage fees of at least $300, conservation police said.
In a statement, police said “only registered, insured, street-legal vehicles are permitted in Wildlife Management Areas. Vehicles may only be operated on established roads and parking areas.”
