2004 Polaris Scrambler 500 4x4 problem

Recommended Posts

My brother has an 04 Scrambler 500 4x4. The other day I was riding it and I notice when I had it in 2wd and would give it a lot of throttle, 4wd would engage. I know when the AWD button is on and the rear tires spin/ loose traction its supose to engage. The whole time we've owned it, once we put in AWD, it's all time 4wd, it wouldn't engage when the tires spin. I dont know if it's supose to be like this or what. Any ideas?

Thanks

Doesn't sound right to me, 2wd should be 2wd. Mudvayne kicks ass by the way. I saw them a couple months ago, they were awesome.

Exactly. I post this somewhere else and a guy said to change hub fluid. So I did and it helped, but it still does a little bit. So figured I'll just change a few more times. ..I havent got the chance to see them in concert yet. Last time I was supose to In Peoria, but had work.:aargh:

I heard someone tell me once that there is a limited split AWD engage...but if it's not on in AWD...then it shouldn't engage, I would think.

Right. When you put it in AWD, its supose to tell when the rear tires loose traction, then the AWD kicks in. I'm going to try the hub fluid later today again and see what happens.

Thanks

Well I read somewhere that you could put ATF fluid. So i didn't have any Polaris hub fluid at the time. So i filled it with that for a day, then went and got some Polaris Hub fluid. I'm filling it up intill it trickles out when the fill holes at a 4 or 8 oclock. What the manual says.

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble. 
      It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
      Are they defective ?
      They have brand new high quality tires for my  old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
      Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
      Any recommendations ?
      Thank you.

      I just watched this video I made ten years ago.  It made me laugh.  I was riding a 1985 Honda ATC 200X.  It's hard to film yourself so I had to position the camera to film me.  May flies out th wazoo, but I HAD to ride.  I hope you get a laugh.

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Hello. I am a new member as of today. I had a quick question to ask. I recently was driving mt HONDA RANCHER 2004 GPSscape 400 and my display stopped working. I was driving the atv and all of a sudden the speedometer and the service lights went out. Also the lights stopped working. I am still able to shift gears, change from 2wd to 4wd, and can still select if I want EPS or Auto. I have checked my fuse box and have changed a few of them around. It did not change anything. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what had happend. Thank you for your time- Trenton

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.
