I have been looking for a while for a trailer to pull with our atv's. We haul fire wood and water at our cabin as well as brush and tree limbs when needed. Also been kicking around the idea to do a camping trip on the quads and spend several days on the trails. I looked at all the trailers I could find and even thought of building my own, Then I found this and for the money, I believe it is a good deal. The only real draw back I see so far is that it is just wider then the quad. I mean by 2 or 3 inches per side. I think I can live with that. Here is a pic of the trailer behind my 02 Scrambler.

I did do some backing with it to see how well it did and was very happy. It is predictable and doesn't cut too fast. So far I like it!!

do the lights work??

Actually they are on in the pics. The polaris has a 3 pin flat plug that matches up to the standard 4 pin flat for trailers. All I have to do is unplug the tail light at the connection that is about 4" away from the light and plug in the trailer. Only one brake light works, but tomarrow I am going to make an adapter to allow both to work. The quad only has 1 brake light wire so all I need is basicly a jumper wire for the right side.

I am going to install a plug on the wifes KQ as well.

yeah. are you that good at the electrical? i have a 94 blaster and the guy i bought it from put a trailer light on it and i have no clue what to do to hich it up. it had a flat connector and a plug connector. there are 4 wires coming out from the quad itself but only 2 coming out of the light. i plugged them both in while the quad was running and neither one was working. its a kick start so there is no battery and we checked the bulb before we plugged it in. i am really needing this fixed because i am going for a ride with a bunch of friends and the place where were going requires a light in the front on at dusk and an all timw running tail light. plus its safe because i was hit the other day because i stopped to take a turn and the person behind me hit me because they had no clue that i was stopping and or turning. sorry about the long post but i am really in a pickle here.

On the trailer light, the brown will be tail and the yellow or green, depending what side it was from will be the brake. The studs from the back of the light will need to be grounded to the quad.

that is awesome... i noticed u have 2 wiches... how did u get both of them to work?? how do u toggle between the 2 of them??? how did u mount it?

If you look at the left side handle bar, you will see the two winch controls. I use the left one as front and right as rear. The front mount I bought, the rear I made myself. I don't have any pics of the mount but will try to take some tomarrow. The solinoids for the winches are under the front cowel. I will take a pic of this as well.

I looked at those trailer sites, they have some NICE stuff! I just did not want to spend that kind of money. I have $319 in my trailer and that is with real wheel bearings and it is D.O.T. legal to pull on the road. I did not want a trailer that just had bushings in the wheels like a lot of yard trailers do. Was affraid that the speed of the quad would really wear out the bushings fast.

As far as the winch questions I was able to take a few pics today.

Here are the dual solinoids for the winches.

Here are the controls.

Here is the front winch with mount.

And here are a few pics of the rear winch and mount.

The rear mount is made from 2 pieces of angle iron that are bolted into the frame and then the winch plate is bolted to the angle iron. The winch is actually upside down. To make the line go in and out with the correct switch movement, the wires are revirsed from the switch to the winch. The bolts that you see on either side of the reflector are the angle iron mounting bolts. Hope this helps.

      Hi all,
      Looking for some help on a starter/bendix issue. Can Am outlander 450 2017. While cranking to start, the starter spins and engages into the ring gear. After a few seconds the bendix retracts while still spinning and there is no damaged teeth on the drive pulley.

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      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!

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
       
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.
