The new 2009 Polaris Outlaws are out!

Recommended Posts



Yeah, they do look very similar to the KTM. I wonder if they shared any of the drawings. I know they worked together a while back on the Outlaw. Maybe some shared R&D?

Thank GOD I got an '08 - the '09s look like a LTR525XC - if you know what I mean. Is it just me, or does the front look really dumb - almost like my kid's Powerwheels?

I say give me the bad-ass old look, with the bigger tank - I'll loose the 6+ pounds myself.

You won't be in front of anyone for long with a tank that's a gallon smaller on the exact same bike. It's called an Outlaw and is supposed to look/be bad-ass, not be a look-a-like/copycat/every-other-quad type of thing.

Also, I got the dealer-new '08 with a 42mo warranty out the door (tax/title/set-up/license) for $6,500 and you'll be paying $8K+ for basicly the same quad; even spending part of the money on performance upgrades would smoke the '09 in a second.

but in most races you wont hae to use the whole tank of gas...

The racing I do and have done you have pit stops. MSRP is 7600. You think I will pay that, you're crazy. Just because YOU don't like the looks doesn't mean everyone does. I personally think the 08 and older models are dumb looking.(the front) The new look is what I like about it. And the fact that it comes with Fox shocks. I'm sorry you don't like it, your opinion will be the LAST thing to sway me from buying one.

You guys - the '08 has the same FOX shocks, and it has the same 5252 KTM racing motor, and it has the same Maxxis tires. Other than the plastics/tank, the steering stem is the only real change. Please like what you like - but doesn't it still make sense to get the same bike right now for way less, use the extra cash for hop-ups and have a real ripper of a machine; especially for racing?

I understand what you're saying, the old look just isn't for me. I won't be getting anything new until next season. So then the 2010 machines will be out. I will get the same deal on an 09 leftover that I could get on the 08 now. KTM is what I really want, but the 08's are practically impossible to get, sold out everywhere near me. The 09 KTM cost about 12 grand.

Speaking of KTM's, I think this is the coolest looking machine I have ever seen.

I hear you there - I know in CA with the new '09 KTM MX (450/477[aka505] DOHC)/$12K coming out in addition to the '09 450/525/$9K KTM XC (same motor as the Outlaw), all the guys who bought the '08 KTM XC are about to trade up and you could probably snag a good deal on a '08 XC unless you're dead-set on new.

Just look at the specs, the 08 comes with a pipe that is comparable to any of the best after market. Same with the intake, suspension, wheels/tires. It is race ready. The 09 they made it dual over head cams instead of the sohc like the 08 which made it even faster. Not only does it still come with the best everything they even put bead locks. All you would really need fro racing is nerf bars.

      I've never done this before but after reading a few thread I decided to check my valves for the first time and to my surprise it was much easier than I thought.
      My bike is a 2005 Sp 500 HO.
      I first pulled the seat and the right side panel off, and that's it! It wasn't too bad to get at.
      Next I pulled the spark plug out and removed both the head cover ( 8-8mm bolts)
      [ATTACH]1021[/ATTACH]
      then the side cam cover (5-8mm bolts).
      [ATTACH]1023[/ATTACH]
      Also remove the plug in the recoil cover (14mm bolt) to see the timming marks.
      [ATTACH]1022[/ATTACH]
      Next I turned the engine over with the pull cord untill it was at TDC of the compression stroke.
      The best was to tell that your at TDC of the compression stroke is to rotate the engine until the
      timing marks are parallel to rocker cover gasket surface.
      The cam sprocket locating pin will be facing upward directly in line with the crankshaft to camshaft center line.
      Now fine adjust by looking into the timing hole in the recoil cover and line up the upside down "T" on
      the flywheel into the center of the hole.
      [ATTACH]1023[/ATTACH]
      Now using a feeler gauge, slide the .006" (.15mm)blade between the top of the valve and the bottom of the adjuster and adjust accordingly
      [ATTACH]1024[/ATTACH]
      [ATTACH]1025[/ATTACH]
      To adjust, Loosen the locknut (10mm) and check clearance with a feeler guage. Clearance should be .006" (.15mm) for both, intake and exhaust valves. Turn the adjuster with a stubby flat blade screwdriver untill the proper clearance is achieved then tighten the locknut (5.8-7.2 ft. lbs) while holding the adjuster in place with the screwdriver. Re-check the clearance with the feeler guage one last time and re-assemble the covers (72 in.lbs) and plugs.
      The only thing that i noticed was that I had to clean and silicone the side cam cover other than that I found the whole process rather simple.
      I'd give it a 4 out of 10 on the skill level scale.
      I hope this helps!
      Thanks Rich

      I have a 2018 450 and the digital gause has started flashing on an off while driving. The backlit also goes on and off. It is worse when I hit the gas. The battery died a few weeks ago and I jumped it but its been fine until last night. Called the dealer and showed them a vid and they recommend replacing the gauge and its like 600 bucks. The machine has less than 100 hours on it. I would really hate to have to change it out. also the unit sometimes has trouble starting. Any ideas?
