One of my kids wheelers a couple years ago had a simular problem. It turned out to be a saftey relay in the brake. Assuming you have to have the brake applied when shifting. Hopefully it's that simple.

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. A year or so ago we got it running after replacing the kill switch. It ran great but after some use for a couple months it got a flat tire and for some reason we just forgot about it and it sat for some time. Before it sat i replaced the gas cap, fuel filter, fuel pump, petcock, battery, starter relay, oil and oil filter. I recently went to start it and it started so quickly and without choke or throttle but the ATV wouldn't move till about 1/4 throttle and it wasn't really a smooth ride until 1/2 throttle. it also would bog out randomly after you came to a stop and sounded like it was getting too much fuel. I cleaned the carb and adjusted the air/fuel screw to 1 3/4 turns out.  I also messed with the idle and the throttle cable adjuster up on the handlebars. It's safe to say it now runs worse than when i started working on it 2 days ago. It takes more effort to get started and bogs out idling after about 30 seconds. I tried adjusting the idle but every time i do it'll get to a sweet spot but after driving it down the driveway and back the idle will go up and down to the point where i can't put it in gear because the gears will grind. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Got a 04 Sportsman 500 that wasnt running- owner said it needed a stater and a new battery.  It ran rough (been sitting out in the weather for a while).  A friend and I started by adding a new battery and it would start barely with the choke and his hand over the air-filter.  I decided to install the new battery in the holder on the side.  we had it on the rack because the old on was still in the bike.  I tried to be nifty by turning the battery to put the terminals in an easier spot to get to, but forgot to reverse the cables too.  In a sentence, I reversed the positive and negative on the battery like a dummy.  When we discovered my mistake and corrected it, we turned on the bike, but the display did not light up and the key did not turn on the starter.  jumping the solenoid worked the starter, so we thought the solenoid just burned up when I reversed the pos and neg...  new solenoid and no difference.  what have I burned up?  Also, the shifter does not seem to do anything in the trans.  it slides back and forth like its stripped in the trans.  any help would be appreciated!!
      I think the biggest issue right now is the electrical.

      I'm working on a 2018 Sportsman 570 and found in the service manual that there are two different torque methods for the head bolts depending on whether the bolts are silver or black. Well, silver bolts came out of my engine and I'm going to be replacing them with new bolts, however the parts fiche doesn't specify bolt color or that there is even an option!?! 
      Has anyone on here been through this before and can offer insight??
       
      TIA

      I bought a used 2017 Outty 1000r and have been hearing about folks melting plastics due to excessive heat near the pipe.
      It's winter here & I've been plowing my drive for a couple months without heat issues. I'd like any input if this will be a problem come summer?!?
      TIA

      I just got an 2006 Suzuki ltz 400. New to sports bikes I just found the oil tank. I noticed that the oil level was at the bottom hash mark of the dipstick. I wanted to make sure that the oil fill level should be at the top of the hash mark. Please correct me if I am wrong. I didn't get a manual with the quad so Im not sure of the correct oil levels or the amount of oil after an oil change.
