Dumb mistake on 2020 Polaris Sportsman 570


Recommended Posts

Hello all. New here. I made a boo boo that the dealer wants no part of so I'll just suck it up and pay for the damages I did. Was moving some electrical connections to take from plastics off and thought I had taken the neg cable off the distribution block but I took a positive off. It was kinda dark and I know should have taken the battery cable off first. Dumb mistake on my part. Any how when I took the winch positive off the block the main hot cable came off too and touched the frame around block. I have no power to anything and a chassis relay clicking fast and no power to display or anything else. Any idea what this could be. Charged battery and tried that hoping it was that. But nope. Unfortunately. Thanks in advance people.

Hi,

I just looked the mains block of mine -19 Sportman. At least on it, major bundle of negative leads came to earthing point just below the 3-pole block. This point is connected to the 3-pole block negetive terminal together with cable from the battery and cable from the voltage regulator. Connection is done be thin metal strip, if remember correct what I see earlier today... Check that metal strip, if it have been suffered any damages. And the battery cables too.

JuhaT your right. Thanks for the idea. So for future if anyone is looking on what may have happened. I burnt the grounding strap at the distribution block. there for not having a ground to the frame. make total sense on why it didnt have power. and best part is part to replace is like maybe 2 back canadian thanks jesus. thanks everyone for the help.

      Anybody know what the valve clearance is for intake and exhaust on a 2017 sportsman 570?  I did a search but it came up with nothing.
      Thanks

      The quad has done this off and on, almost since new, but it's gotten worse this year. Sometimes if I freshly charge the battery, it'll work fine, others times that won't matter. Turning the key to on it sounds like it's connecting as I go to the start position, slightly before the full turn, but it's not like there is just a sweet spot to find, it's totally erratic.
      Now the battery is basically dead so I put a new, slightly bigger AGM battery in today to replace the factory one with all of 800 miles on it, but those have lots of plowing hours included. 
      I was able to get it started once, but it still went into limp mode after just a few moments of driving it (that's another topic), so I put it back in the garage and started probing around. Now it doesn't even try to turn over.
      Is an ignition switch, the $18 shipped aftermarket variety on Amazon worth a shot? Or should I go straight for the starter? The new switch may not come for over a week, so I hate to just put my hopes in that if I'm missing something obvious. Fuses are good, so it's not something super obvious.

      Does the onboard system provide everything needed to atleast point out any electrical component malfunction and is there ang benefit of using an obdll diagnostic tool with an adapter for this machines diagnostic port?

      Friday evening went riding, rode for a good hour or so everything was fine. I went to take a short ride to the restroom (less than 100 yds away) and all of the sudden everything flickered and then just died out. Accompanying the problem I noticed the killswitch completely locked up. Once daylight hit took the killswitch apart to find it had shorted out and melted the plastic inside. Has anyone else had anything similar to this and if so what did you do to fix the situation? I have a new killswitch on the way to replace the obvious problem but was wondering could there be a bigger issue at hand. We tested with a voltage meter to make sure everything was still getting power from the battery and as far as we could tell it was.
      Any advice/info would be GREATLY appreciated.
      Thanks.

      After purchasing a lightly used 2018 570SP (300 miles on it) I noticed that the display was flashing on and off. I remember reading awhile back that this was a common problem on the 18 model. I can't remember what the fix is. It also turns over slow even though the battery is charged. Anybody know what the fix is on this issue?
      Thanks

      Grandson got a couple China made ATVs, lucky me, been a while since my motorcycle days, but I’ve mechanic and body worked all my life. Got an issue with the 110 cc one that’s got me scratching my bald head. Replaced carb, adjusted and checked all I see that can be done and it still Boggs out in forward gear , but will spin the tires in reverse and not bogg at all. What am I missing hear ? Anybody got any ideas on what to try next? Please let me know, I’m sure that the best thing to do would be to get rid of the the things and buy a real Atv, unfortunately the grandkids can’t afford it and Grandpa is supposed to be able to fix anything don’t acknowledge. Help needed!

      Hello everyone,
      Im new here, this is my first post and Im trying to figure out how evrything works on this site so I please let me know if Im doing anything wrong.
      I have a couple Yamaha's but this post is in regards to my 02 Grizzly 660, I have an electrical draw somewhere that is taking my new battery down rather quickly. I have tried to locate any short by checking each circuit but was not able to locate it that way. Im installing a battery cut off switch which brings me to my first question, dont these switches usually go on the Negative terminal?
      My next question is, can anyone tell me if this year and model has any history of electrical shorts that might help me locate the culprit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
      Finally, Im looking forward to being a member of this site and hopefully helping others as well as learning some things myself, so greetings to all!
      Best wishes to everyone!

      There's an electrical cable connected to the front brake lever. The parts list calls it the front stop switch assembly. There is no stop switch on this side of the handle bars. Seems to be activated by the brake lever. Anybody know what it does?

      I am kind of sick of having a stock ATV and not that willing to spend money on it but would love to spend some time for some easy homemade mods to kill time. Thanks.
