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.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      Good Morning All!,
      After a significant amount of reading and tinkering, I'm stumped.  We have a pair of Arctic Cat DVX 90s (4-stroke), and one of them runs very rich at wide open throttle.  I've cleaned the carb (which was installed new  last year), verified the main jet (80) to be per the original spec, installed a new air filter, tried a hotter spark plug (CR6HSA), and adjusted the valves (tightened a modest 0.0005" but improved starting).  The hotter spark plug may have help just a bit, but not appreciably.
      Just for fun, I swapped the CDI between machines, and that didn't help either.
      Fouling plugs very quickly, but not to the point the machine will not run or start.  [black instantly]
      Logically, I assume I'm revving out, but the other machine doesn't "stumble/blubber" anything like this one.
      Should I try a smaller main jet?
      Any ideas you guys may have would be much appreciated.
      Thanks in advance everyone.

      Morning myself, my wife, son and stepfather and a few others head up to Jericho NH a couple times a year. It’s beautiful and we love it. Only issue is it’s4 1/2 hours away looking for places a bit closer. Maybe southern NH? My son and I love sand pits and wife and stepfather like the trails with views. W we register them in nh, but never had the need to in mass as we never found anything this way. if anyone has any suggestions please please let er rip. Either for the day, or if camping available, for a few days. 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.
