2004 Polaris 700 headgasket repair

Recommended Posts



I ordered the parts and will be uploading pictures soon. Any tips will be appreciate. Also if anyone knows is a genuine Polaris head gasket necessary. Im using a Namura top end gasket kit.

Thanks for the info on the gasket. It overheated and that, blew the head gasket over pressurizing the coolant system and cant run very long without overheating.

Wow that sucks but hopefully it’s just gaskets and that’s it! Do you know why it over heated ? Reason I’m asking is you don’t want to do all that work and have it over heat again. 😬

Traced the problem to bad fan switches and faulty thermostat which I thought would fix it, but it was overheated by previous owner and my brother was riding and didn't shut it off with the light, not till it gave a cloud of steam.

Oh ok, dam that hurts man.  Well good luck with the rebuild and make sure the head or cylinder is not warped from heat when you break it down and post some pics! I love to see pics.  You found  the right forum to help you out if you need! 

Good luck brother.

Alright I'm am going to explain this teardown. 

1. Remove upper rack 4 t27 star bolts.

2. Remove front grill piece says polaris brand on it.

3. Remove plastic that covers the fuse brr. ( right under handle bars).

4.remove the metal part of the rack. 

5. Remove the front grille held in by few bolts. steps 4 and 5 are actually in wrong order do 5 first than 4.

6. Renove the seat really easy. 

7. Statt removing the front fender/ all front plastics as one assembly  simply loosen about the bottom 3 screws per side. Where fender meets with footrest plastic. Fender flares can stay on. Then remove gas cap, and screws on front fascia( fuse panel area -2 screws). 2 screws on plastics right under the seat as well. Then remove the cvt breather right near gas tank. Unlosen clamps and gently pull out. Might have to pull loose the airbox for this. Removal is needed anyways.

8. Remove upper assembly for headlight and loosen lower plastic of headlight assembly too so it can move easier.  

Then fight and semi gently pull plastics around handle bars with fenders and all. With it loose access will be radical.

9. Remove fuel tank put cap back on first pull it out as much as possible before removing fuel lines less mess this way and save the gas. After all loose pour in container.  Only 2-4 scres/bolts hold it on.

10.Then remove airbox start remove upper lid (if not done already). Will see now see bare filter, loosen clamps from carberautor side rubber boot and the airbox including filter will come out. 

11. Next it to remove carberator with intake as one piece.unloosen bolts that hold intake to the  head. Then unloosen bolts bolts that hold carberator bracket to frame. Carb will then have room to slide back I didn't undo cables or anything just slide it back out of the way.

      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.

      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?

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.
