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.

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!

      Hello everyone, I just picked up an 02 LT-F250F the other day and have been in the process of tearing it down to fix some stuff- one of which was the cylinder base gasket leaking like a sieve. Well, I know why that is now, and I also discovered that someone had been in there before. I didn't take pictures, but it looks like it was probably run low on oil at some point, the cam journals and the "bearings" (for lack of a better term) in the head and the valve cover are totally wiped out, very deep grooves.  From what I know it's very difficult to repair aluminum in this way, so I'm trying to figure out where to go next.
       
      1. Have someone grind down the head and valve cover and fit actual bearings in since the aluminum is screwed, and have the cam ground down to match.  I have no idea what this would cost.
      2. Buy a replacement head+cam+valve cover.
       
      #1 I was hoping someone might have some advice on, but #2 seems like it'll (probably) be the more cost effective option.  However I'm running into some difficulty, it seems like the 2001 and 2002 models specifically use a different head part number,  11100-19B10, instead of  11100-19B01 like for all earlier models.  What exactly is the difference between them? There are obviously far more of the earlier heads because it ran for over 10 years.  Are they actually interchangeable? I've also noticed there are heads from the LT250EF that has 4 valve heads but also otherwise look identical.  Would those work as well possibly?  I'd like to not have to drop $500 on machine work or new heads on a $1300 quad that I'm already putting a bunch of new parts on.  Oh, and it has a new piston and the cylinder itself looks pretty good too, as I said someone was in here before me.
       
      Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I'll post pics of the carnage tomorrow.

      Hi, I have been around everything with a motor since I was little, and finally purchased more to get my husband, and kids involved. I have 4 quads I will be searching around for information on. I have two 2002 Suzuki LT80K quads, a 1997 Yamaha Timberwolf 250, and a 1996 Kawasaki Bayou 220. I have had different ones throughout the years, and plan on buying another Yamaha Banshee. I plan on trying to learn more about all of them, so I can customize some of them. I know nothing about them besides how to race them, my dad always took care of the rest, but figured it was time for me to learn.

      Hi all, from Virginia here. This winter I bought a old Atv to tinker with and have really enjoyed it. Thanks for this forum.
