570 aftermarket boot replacement (it's been a while)

Recommended Posts

First of all sorry I have been MIA here for a while, been busy with school and work.  I'll try and reply on some other threads asap, but posting this one because I just picked up a 2017 sportsman 570 before the new year and popped a boot on it going through a mud hole.  The former owner had aftermarket axles on it to accommodate the 4in lift and idk what brand they are but they're skinny as heck and idk what boot to buy to rebuild with?  It's the rear right lower boot (under the brake calp.).  I'll post some pics when I can and sorry again I've missed yall on the forum!

Welcome back Jacob. We will need pics to understand better. I’m pretty sure I know the answer but to people that don’t know would like to see so they can learn as well.

The temporary fix is to use the oem boot and zip tie it back on. The right way is to get the right one. Lol. if to much play is in the boot, cut a small enough line to split it but still use it. Then take silicon to patch the hole.

Sorry was having wifi trouble couldn't get pics up last night.  So I tried a oem boot and clamping it as tight as i could and it still popped off.  Maybe what@06kfx440 was saying would work but I'm leaving rn-  just gonna run it easy and keep it outa mud and if the axle breaks it breaks😆👍

I did order a boot that I think will work, I'll let yall know

Got it done.  So I ordered a front end lower boot and it fit great!  Bought off amazon.  Heres some pics.  Super easy to disassemble these cv axles if you have the right tools. 

I bought a cv clamp tightener/cremper and a set of circlip pliers and pics and swapped a lower boot in prolly 2 hours or less (including disassembly and reassembly of the atv.

You can see in the first pic I was able to clamp the stock boot with a pipe clamp, but the lower end came apart and lost the clamp.

these pics are kinda in order of how I replaced the boot

      Where can I find a fan relay for this atv.

      I have a 2018 Sportsman 570 SP Hunters Edition. I bought the quad new in August of 2018 and put around 20 miles on it with no issues. In early January of this year the quad was acting as if it had a bad battery even though it had been plugged into a tender. I checked the battery and it tested well so I took it to the dealership for warranty service. They had it for almost a month. They determined the quad had a bad EPS unit and swapped it out. Then they told me that the wire for the EPS needed to be updated as they could not program the new unit with the old wire. After the wire came in dealership told me they were still having troubles programming. After another week and a half they told me that they had consulted several times with engineers from Polaris and found a workaround and that the quad was ready for pickup. I contacted Polaris to inquire about the warranty being extended as it was in the shop for a month. They extended the 6 month factory warranty for an additional 3 months. I picked the quad up and the dealership said that the 2018 SP editions were known to have issue a with the EPS units but believed that they had fixed mine. I had it back for around a month and took it out a couple times for short rides and everything seemed fine. I parked it again for a few days and when I went to start it same issues (acting like the battery is no good and won’t start, when I jump start no power steering). Took it back to dealership and waiting to hear what the diagnosis is this time as well as their plan to fix this permanently. Just wondering if anyone else has had issues similar to mine or can give me some advice. Thanks in advance!

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!
