The new 2009 Polaris Outlaws are out!

Recommended Posts

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.

do u really need nerfs for racing?

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.

I really want new, but if I found the right used I would buy. I just like to know what it has been through. I know people that wash their machines once a week, change the oil after every ride. I would not buy from them because of how they ride. Big jumps landing on flat ground. Bouncing off rocks, stuff that leads to cracked frames.

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.

They are not a must but it is the difference between your feet coming off the pegs and breaking your shins or not.

I know a guy that raced in AZ. on quads. He landed wrong and both feet came off the pegs and snapped both of his shins right above the boot line.

      Hi, I'm new to ATV/UTV's and am looking for any advice that would help to repair my 2018 Ranger 500.  I got it from an insurance auction and have never owned one before.
      It looks like it was sunk deep.  Found rocks and sand in the roof, milky oil in the air filter box, water in the fuse box, etc.
      So far, I've cleaned the air box out, vacuumed most of the rocks and sand, checked the engine, trans and diff casings for cracks/leaks.
      The battery would not charge while connected so I know there is some short somewhere...probably the wet fuse box.
       
      I plan on drying out the fuse box and all connectors with a hairdryer tomorrow, check the fuses, remove/dry out the ECM and disassemble/clean the air intake.  Then install the battery and see if i can get it to key on and see what kind of lights I get.
      Need to know what to expect with the engine/trans...
      Thanks.

      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?
