2" lift kit for Sportsman 500

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a 2" lift kit for my 07 Sportsman 500 HO. Any ones to stay away from? From looking at the few that are avaluable, they look very much the same. Any good or bad feed back? Thanks, Ken

highlifter makes the 2 inch lift kits eh idk i think its a bit to much for stock axles really wears the boots down..and puts a sharp angle on the axles

For your polaris the lift kit will only lift the back. I think the kit comes with spring spacers for the front because they dont sell lifts for the mcpherson strut.

I have the moose industries lift kit on my atv. Very simple design very strong and incredibly easy to install and is much cheaper. But its a 1 or 1.5 inch lift instead of 2 inch lift

After the install were there any issues with the steering linkage or allignment? Where did you get the kit from and if I may ask, how much was it? I was planning to have this done by now but life has once again thrown a curve ball my way. I am still planning to do this soon though.

We have the same bumpers. I really don't care for them all that much. They were on when I bought. Watch the bolts for the rear, they tend to strip and the bolt will pull through the nut if you try to pull from the bumper.

Thanks fellers....i bought the kit from Super ATV...it costs les then 65.00...it was easy to install and i did take the fenders off in the front and use an extra floor jack to keep the axles from sliding out...it took me about 2 hrs...i have had no front end problems at all...the ride was alittle stiffer, but only felt this running it on blacktop or cement...off road in the fields and trails and Mud it felt fine...i am going to be running 26 inch Zillas Radials, i'm told Radials cover more of the ground and steer better also ITP ss108 wheels soon....as for the bumpers you do have to watch stripping the bolts....i torque them on with a torque wrench...

I had to take the front apart only cause ,i could'nt see the shock towers..some guys leave them on and do them....

I wanted to go alittle higher, but did'nt want to put alot of stress on the axles....so a 2 inch lift and 26 inch Radials should ride like a dream on the trails....MUDDIE49

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      I want to hear about your favorite lift table brand! And why do you prefer it?

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      Hi
      Anyone else with a 2017 sportsman with EPS, experiencing hard lock up with the CVT clutches.
      As compared to my friends 2006 Polaris 500 HO they seem to be a lot smoother engagement.
      Any ideas or is this normal for this model.
