2002 Polaris Xpedition 425 ATV

Recommended Posts

My buddy is offering to give me his 2002 (I think, or maybe 2001) Polaris Xpedition 425 ATV. I told him I would play around with it if I can find some spare time. I know he's beat the crap out of it, but I'm pretty sure it starts and runs. I think it needs some tires, front rack, and lights, and some other stuff.

If anyone has any XPedition parts or experience, please chime in here. It'll probably be May before I get it, and if I do, it's be a new project to get it up to speed..I guess we'll see.

It pretty much (from what I remember when he used to ride it) looks like:

Well I got the 400 Xplorer (2001) Version, and it even almost looks the same. But I bet the motor is different. It's a good ATV it's good on gas. I lasted almost the hole day driving around, and wasn't even near empty.

As for speed. I can ranch a good amount of speed, and it takes off. For offroad use. For trails it can do what it post to do.. If you want to take it thru mud like I normally do now days. It's good and all. But you must get the mud off the raditior after few runs thru the mud. But thats a given.

If I recall right. Thats a 5 speed tranny. If so that was the weak link on them.

Thanks for the info! How is your suspension? This machine has had issues from what I rermember, with the front struts popping apart on hard bumps.

Yep, 5 speed. :frown:

I have a 2000 Xpedition 425 Ive had since new. I have had NO problems with the transmission. I did have the fix done to the tranny when the recall came out in '02. (supposedly a bolt had backed out in a few trannys and caused rear wheel lockups ) Other than that and a set of axle bearings and seal, a battery and 3 sets of brake pads, Ive done nothing but ride this quad nearly EVERY Sunday in mud, water, sand, dirt etc. It has not been babied at all and its always come back for more.

This pic shows the type of riding we do.

      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

      2000 Sportsman 335 lost the speedo functions. Don't need the speedo but need AWD.  Is there a wiring bypass that can be done to activate AWD ?

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
       
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!
