2014 Polaris Phoenix 200 will not go forward

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.

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


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?

 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.

      Hey all!
      I'm on a mission to buy my first UTV soundbar as a gift for my dad(a newbie on ATV). I'm aiming for something that offers great sound quality without breaking the bank – my budget is around $250. Right now, I'm considering options like ecoxgear, kemimoto, and boss.
      Does anyone have experience with these brands or specific models that you'd recommend? Any advice or suggestions would be super appreciated!

      Recently picked up a 1991 Lt230e for repair. Compression is a little low Id say, around 80psi, I also have spark but the spark is odd . When cranking the spark is a constant arc. I’ve got it to sputter but never fully turn on. I believe the spark is my issue, being constant and not detonating at the right time. I’m not sure whether this issue is an electrical fault like some missing ground, a faulty cdi, or a timing issue. Any ideas where I should start?

      I added more fresh gas it sat one day now, it's acting up again. Before cleaning out carburetor it wouldn't idle good and had gas leaks from carburetor. Now it idles pretty good but, if I increase throttle speed at a certain amount it starts missing bad. I'm going to try and post a short video. Just about ready to give up on this thing.😒  you can see reflection perking in video.

      So, I bought the machine almost a year ago and have been chasing problems. I have replaced the battery, starter solenoid, spark plug, and the starter. Since having replaced those, it doesn't want to start. I checked the carb, and it was wet as well as the spark plug. And I've searched multiple forums and cannot find an answer. So, anything that helps is appreciated, thanks.

      I have a 1989 quadrunner LT160. I am looking to replace the plastics. I can't find them for the 89 specifically but I do see plastics for a 91 - 01. Is there a difference in the 89 to the 91 - 01 plastics? From the photos, they appear to be the same with the exception of the holes for the front and rear racks. 
      Please help clarify if you can. Thanks!
