2018 Sportsman 850 - Rubber hose from the front Diff

Recommended Posts

I found a black rubber hose hanging down from the front of my Sportsman 850.  I'm trying to see if it's the diff vent hose, or something else and if it's something else, what it's supposed to attach to...

Figured as much.

That’s a great machine you got there. Did you buy it new ? What’s your opinion on Polaris ? 

Pros cons ?

Yup brand new.  Not my first quad.  I have an 04 Honda TRX350FE as well.  I like them both, but the Sportsman is much better to plow snow with.  The extra weight and torque really help.  I like wringing out the Honda on the trails.  It's quite a bit lighter and it's just more exhilarating to drive a slow quad fast.

I like the Honda. That’s a great bike, It will run forever. 

The polars is independent wheel suspension? I’ve been contemplating a bike with independent suspension for some time.

Yeah, it's independent suspension.  The ride is really smooth.  I also like that it's not a locked 4x4 system like my Honda.  It's got a clutch in the front diff that locks on wheel spin.  Makes steering on hard surfaces much easier

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. The Speedometer got water inside of it and it sat for a long time. So now that speedometer is trashed to say the least and i need to find a replacement. I don't want to put up the cash for an oem one so i was wondering if anyone knew any good speedometers out there i could use. I've found many speedometers i like but don't know how i'd wire it up without the same connection points. Thanks, any input is appreciated

      Has anyone had any luck putting a different gauge on this machine. Would you happen to have the wiring diagram?
