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 bought this ATV from a friend who had it stored in their shed for a few years. I've been going through it getting things ready to fire it back up and get it driving around. So far I've changed out fluids, removed and cleaned gas tank. I am waiting on a fuel fitting to be ready to able to put the gas tank back on and fire up the engine. I'll follow up once I get to that point with whether or not that went smoothly.
Right now however I've got a brake problem. The brakes were locked up. I took the brake line off the master cylinder and made sure that it wasn't locked up, it works. I proceeded to try and flush them no luck. Then I just disconnected the brake lines. They appear to be blocked up. I don't know if the hose portions deteriorated or what. I've found the front left and right brake lines, although $70-80 each doesn't make me happy... I can't find anyone selling the rear brake line 1930751 or the primary 1930760 that goes to the inverted flare cross fitting. This leads me to wonder if I should buy parts and tools to make my own brake lines.
If I should decide to make my own can you point me to any tutorials out there on doing that and what size are these lines with the flared fittings?
Can anyone else find the two brake lines i listed for sale somewhere?

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?
