Considering a 2004 Polaris Sportsman 90

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone new to the forum.  I’m looking to upgrade my son from an Eton brand 50cc atv. It’s 2 stroke and can take awhile to warm up in the cold months. Anyway, I found a mint looking 2004 Polaris Sportsman 90 ($1400)and a few 2015 and 2016 Arctic Cat DVX 90 atvs ($1800) in my area.  Just wondering if I’m crazy for considering the Sportsman since it is 10 years older. Basically    Are the newer atvs 2015/ 2016 made any better or worse than the 2004 atvs? I know it is hard to say without seeing them and testing them out, but any experiences in general may help me to decide. Thank you

Welcome to Quadcrazy! Have you checked Kelly blue book on atv values to see where your at with what a atv your looking at is with ? Every state is different.

Now for the performance concerns my feelings are the Polaris although it’s a little older is still a great bike. Very reliable and hold value. I think that price is a little out of line but not bad. But your looking at a much newer bike for about $400 more. Well worth it.  Most of the newer bikes have fuel injection, better suspension and overall newer features.  

The only thing with the Polaris is the due to the year although a solid bike if you hold on to it for a while and have no intention of passing it down and want to sell it the year will be the haggling point as it’s your concern right now (the year) think about the next guy lol.

Either way I think you can’t go wrong as far as getting a solid bike. I would go with the newer bike (just my preference)

      When the machine sits a few days I have a week/dead battery.
      What I have found,
      1. There is a group of four smaller gauge wires connected to the positive side of the battery. One of these is a blue wire, with the key off there is a .5amp draw on this wire.
      2. When I pull the EFI relay it is warm and the .5amp draw stops.
      3. I can reinstall the relay and the draw does not return until the key is turned back on.
      4. Swapping the relay with another does not change the condition.
      5. Turning the engine kill switch to stop does not kill the draw.

      I am assuming that when the key is turned off the EFI relay should relax, but is not.
      Does/should the key to off remove the control power for the relay, and therefor relax, or does the ECM control this relay?

      Thanks for any help.

      I am in the process of puting it back together after replacing the DPS gearbox.
      The manual I have states that it will need to be flashed by a dealer. Is this still true?

      Pic is no go for now....Cox issue I will try again later

      I have a 1985 Suzuki LT230 GE quadrunner.  It has been stored in a shed for at least the last 15 years and has very low mileage.  Although the tires look and feel great... should I consider changing them since they are 38 years old?  I don't intend to ride to far or too fast but I don't want to have to walk out of the bush.  Any input would be welcome.

      Hi Everyone,
      I recently purchased a 2005 50cc Polaris Predator for my granddaughter.
      The wiring is a mess. most of it appears to be jumpered out (twisted together).
      I installed a new carburetor. The gas tank was cracked so I found another one on ebay and got that installed. There is no air filter box. I ordered another one but, it has not arrived yet.
      I did get it cranked with the kick start. But, it idles too fast and when you give it any throttle the motor dies off. The more throttle you give it the faster it dies off. It is very hard to start when it has not been running for a while. However, once it has warmed up, it starts on the first kick every time after that.
      I am looking for a little assistance in getting it running better and also a wiring diagram and service manual if possible.
      Thanks in advance....
