2014 Polaris Phoenix 200 will not go forward

Recommended Posts

The Polaris phoenix 200 will not go forward only in reverse, it just happened out of the blue, I’m wondering if someone could help me figure out what it is

Have you checked the linkage underneath to see if its hitting something?  Or is the shifter moving just no action ?

It could be the belt, i would drop the oil first and see what the color, smell and if any metal pieces are in there. 
Then check the belt and see what it looks like.

No i was thinking more along the lines of seeing if any small pieces of gears ⚙️ Come out or any burnt smell etc.

Does it rev out in forward? Did it go through any water? Like @Frank Angerano said, check the belt..

Yes, he said he went though water, and yes it revs out in forward. Do you think I should change the belt? It is the original belt.

Ok, I’ll try that and change the belt. Because I never heard any sort of grinding.

But the machine does go in reverse, do you think it still could be the belt? When you put it in forward and push it it doesn’t really seem like it’s in gear, when you put it in reverse and pull it backwards it kind of bucks a little bit, do you think the belt would allow that?

Thank you guys so much, it was the belt Housing was soaking wet and the belt would not grab the clutches. I took it apart dried everything up put it back together and is working fine, again thank you for everything, you guys are the best!

 I had this problem over the weekend. The ATV would not go forward, it would go in reverse until it got under strain (backing onto a trailer). Researched it found this page. After reviewing the suggestions, I pulled the drain plug, a lot of water came out. No smells, no metal shavings just dirty water. I let it dry over night. Cranked it, pulled it off the trailer, rode it for a mile easy and then climbed about a 5 - 8% grade with no problems.

@DaleS Glad you found the forum helpful.  I'm a member of several and this is by far the best to throw random questions to as there are many different machines represented here.

      Yeah I know its been a while since I've been on but, I've recently aquired a 2005 Polaris ATP 500. As ya'll well know I'm sure that these things are notorious for faulty ECMs and they are made of unobtanium. I got this one from my brother. I've unpotted the old ECM and tested the components and have concluded that they don't flow the board properly from the factory so that's why they crap out.  I've also done some research and found that if you take the harness and Stator and flywheel from a 2004 its basically a plug & play application and it eliminates the need for the ECM. Why the heck they put it in anyways is beyond me. I'm going to devise a way to make a plug & play adapter harness that eliminates the need for the ECM and restores the wheeler to use. Has anyone tried this before and had any luck? I've been trying to locate a wiring diagrams online so I can compare the 2004 to the 2005 but they're pretty hard to find.

      I recently purchased the subject UTV for my kids.  It's my first Polaris (other wheeler is a Teryx4) - and my first-ever single-cylinder vehicle (even my mower has more)...
      Valve lash adjustment values... The operating manual recommends verifying at specific intervals, but does not provide the clearances or procedure.  Any idea where I can obtain those? Tach on the display shows about 1500RPM when at idle, and about 6000 when WOT at max speed (30MPH).   Does that seem correct? The engine does not SOUND like it's going that fast, but that may just be my unfamiliarity with single-cylinder engines.  The idle feels mildly rough - and the tach shows a fluctuation of about 50 rpm.  It's not wild, but it is noticeable.  Again, without any point of reference, I do not know if that's just the nature of the beast, or if I should be concerned. The front wheels spin freely in the forward direction (mild brake noise can be heard), but when rotating tires backwards, the brake pads grab the rotor with significant force - making it nearly impossible to turn the rotor by hand.   Considering the cost of new rotors and calipers, I'm hoping there is a know 'fix' for this issue. Any help would be appreciated!  My kids can't wait for me to give it the "all clear".   Still waiting on helmets to arrive from Amazon, so I have a couple of days to get all the maintenance and repairs completed.

      I have a Polaris Express 300 2 stroke. Finally got the engine running smooth with everything tweaked correctly on the carburetor.
      I have now moved on to shifting the gears. 
      I have had this atv for a long time and high gear was always a pain in the ass to get to go into gear, reverse was okay and low was best. 
      You could always feel low go into gear.
      A couple of months ago the spark plug cap went bad while I was trying to figure out the issue with shifting into high. At this time I put fresh gear oil in and never drained the old because it literally looked empty. 
      Fast forward to a couple of days ago. I finally got everything running but shifting into low you cant really hear grinding gears but it doesn't jerk like it used to when shifting into low and half the time it wouldn't shift fully. 
      Reverse would move but completely grinding, and high of course is still the pain in the ass. 
      All 3 gears when shifting into clicks like it got a good shift, not a click on the gears or anything, just a normal click that your in gear so I know I am not loose on the shifter rods. 
      I checked the gear oil and it was sort of milky, like barely and had bubbles. This means water is in it so i am going to drain the gear oil today. 
      What I am wondering is could the bad gear oil be the reason the gears aren't going in fully? I highly doubt it because of the symptoms with some gears grinding and others not going into gear at all like high. 
      Just need to know what the causes could possibly be.
      Thanks!
