yep.  If it had been all together and not had parts missing and all torn apart like it was, I probably would have bought it, but I was smelling something fishy about how the guy was doing his work on it- it was under a tarp and torn down.  He didnt have all the parts, and just from looking at it, I could tell there was a lot more under the surface than what he was telling me..  but yea if I came across another kodiak, that bike would be helpful for parts.

yea that was what I was thinking.  At best I let him sit on it for a while and then low ball him... but yea it wont happen- we can still dream tho :embarrassed:

You know what happens is they get a lot of low ball offfers and finally realize that they are high on the price and wind up selling low to the last guy that hits them up!

yup that and if you let them sit on it for long enough, they realize they cant get that much for it and drop price...  Thats what happened with the sportsman 335 that i'm hoping to get- guy had it up for 1600- I let him sit on it for over a month and now he's down to 950.  I'm going out to look at it saturday in a van (no way to get it home) and act non-interested in it but say 'let me think about it'.....then offer 800 again or less if theres other issues with it and go pick it up later...  not worried about it selling since he still has it posted at 1600 lol

You can’t go wrong with lo balling. Worst case is they tell you take a walk. Sometimes they come up a few bucks more then the low ball offer !!! Win. Other times it’s a no go. Bottom line you have nothing to loose by going low.

When checking out all of these polaris make sure to grab ahold of the motor and try to move it. The motor mounts are known for failure and can cause all sorts of issues tearing up the clutches

      Hello
      Just bought a used 2014 outlaw 90.
      I noticed at the top of the front shocks there is 2 mounting holes for the shocks. By the markings the shocks used to be mounted in the inner holes now the shocks are mounted using the outer holes. Googling I can't find the reason for these two holes. 
      2nd question is about the rear suspension
      When I push the suspension down it is very slow at raising back up. Should it be slow? Is it a safety thing for kids so it doesn't bounce them off. The spring adjustment is on the second lob from softest. Has painted arrows so I'm guessing it's from factory.
      Has anyone touched one of these machines and could tell me if this is normal?
      Thanks

      Hey, how's it going?
      I'm a new member looking to get some advice before I go to check out a '14 Sportsman 800.  I wanted to get input from you guys that have experience with Polaris machines. I've been riding my whole life, dirt bikes and atvs... Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, but never Polaris.  I'm looking for advice on what I should be looking for, any common issues, really any general advice.  I couldn't find many reviews of the Sportsman 800 online, so and general reviews on quality/reliability would be great too.
      A little info on the machine. 
      -2014 800 EFI
      -640 miles, 77hrs.
      -Winch
      -Asking price is $5500
      Couple add ons: (nothing major) 
      -Aftermarket wheels with Maxxis tires
      -Front and rear brush bumpers
      -LED lights
      Probably going to see it in the next couple days. I'll make sure to check out all the basics... Fluids, front end, tires, suspension etc.  Plus anything else you guys recommend.
      Thanks for any advice on advance!

      Buying a Baja 250 tomorrow for 600 bucks, needs nothing but a wheel bearing, i already know Baja is an off brand crappier. Manufacturer, but does anyone have any tips or knowledge of these bikes?

      Hello,
        Over the years I have always used a friends machine, and only ride a few times a year. Last week I purchased a 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700. The front diff needs a rebuild, the axles are very loose where they go into diff. My question is, both front wheels rotate forward by hand, but do not rotate the opposite direction. Is this "NORMAL OPERATION" I plan on rebuilding the hubs at the same time as the diff.....
       
        My question about the rear diff, it rolls as if the machine has a total POSI rear axle...……. I lifted the front end off the garage floor with overhead hoist, as I moved it sideways the rear tires skidded rather than rotate. Both would roll forward easy, but not go in a circle. When I drove the machine in the garage making a tight turn I could feel the binding and skidding of rear tires....  Even if the switch was in 4 wheel drive, when it's hanging in te air the ignition is off...….. with the machine in 2 wheel drive mode, is that HONESTLY 1 wheel drive to allow turning without tearing up the lawn? then it locks the rear axle once it's put into 4 wheel drive? I'm guessing the rear diff needs a rebuild also because there is something "BALLED UP" internally locking the rear wheels together?
        It's a old machine that was not maintained, I thought the wheels were all rusted, but it was 17 years off baked on red clay. Just wanting to make it a reliable machine. I have great mechanical ability, just lacking a little knowledge of what is suppose to be "NORMAL OPERATING STANDARDS"
       
      Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge.
      Jeff
