95 500l , new to Polaris!

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, just was given a 95 400l 2x4. After spending about 400$ to get it running and riding  I’m just wondering if there’s anything I need to know about this thing. The oil injection appears to be working, it starts up first crank but needs a little help to stay running the first couple minutes. It runs well and doesn’t appear to have any leaks anywhere, the oil injection appears to be working as well. Never owned a Polaris or a 2stroke bike before!

Wow cool find in such great shape.   The older bikes usually take a little longer to warm up. So I would not worry about that.  It’s normal.  Once she gets going she runs good like you said.   Try to keep it in tact and running good.  Sweet bike.

Thanks Frank, the previous owner did a bunch of performance modifications to it, an aftermarket reed, and carb, bigger rear sprocket, aftermarket exhaust, and shocks. Also included all of the original parts, I did also replace the belt and chain as well as put a stock size sprocket back on

Keep a very close eye on the counter balance gear case. It only holds about a half a cup of oil that is responsible for lubing not only the counter balance gears but also the water pump and oil injector. The gear case is on the Mag side of the engine.Newer models have a short dipstick on the rear portion of the engine. Older models have a oil level plug on the front. I think the manual recommends 10w-30 or 10w-40. Probably the most overlooked area on these engines that can end up causing the most damage. Were all used to EFI these days,just turn the key and its running from dead cold. Engines with carburetors take a few minutes to warm up.  Those are great engines though. Excellent power to weight ratio. Make sure the air box isn't cracked either.They were known for cracking and letting dirt bypass the air filter.

      I am struggling to find boots that will fit my large calves. I'm not a large person just muscular calves. I wear a women's size 7 but have tried on up to my boyfriend's size 10. Surely there is something out there.... I can't be the only person struggling

      I have a 2000 Polaris Xplorer with the 250 two stroke motor
      It does not want to start with the electric start, the motor cranks fast, the battery is good, and there is good spark when cranking. The engine starts perfect when using the pull cord, it even starts if I pull the cord slowly and starts with one pull. The engine idles smoothly once started. My wife says she needs the electric start to work.

      Bought this quad a couple days ago. Got it home and couldn't get it started. Got my new starter and recoil on. Starts up great. Took it for a quick spin hot light came on. Guess my question is there a way to test the sensor? If sensor is good what would be next step? Any other common checks I should do before throwing new parts at it?
       
      Thanks.

      Hello everyone, did a search and not successful. Purchased new 2017 Sportsman 570 sp and my power steering is not working. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Works then it doesn't. Dealer says there's not a fix. Thought it was just me and it being a brand new machine with 4 hours on it. Dealership said it's this model only ? Not sure what a person in this spot is suppose to do and wondering are your thoughts mite be. Thanks

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az
