2006 Polaris Outlaw 500 - Groud wire ?'s

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 2006 Outlaw 500 and found a loose ground wire. I need help to find out where this wire should be attached.

The main ground wire goes from the negative battery terminal to the chassis directly above the battery. The ground wire I need help with attaches to the same spot on the chassis above the battery however; the opposite end of the ground wire is loose.

Can any of you Outlaw 500 owners tell me where this ground wire should go? A picture would help tremendously!!!

I have searched for wiring diagrams and repair manuals but all of those free downloads are shut down due to copyright issues.

Thanks for your help.

Are you having any problems with anything electrical? If something is acting up, that might be an indication of where the wire needs to go. There are a couple of other Outlaw owners here, hopefully one of them will see this thread and have some help for you. Good luck.

I haven't noticed it affecting anything yet. Only ridden it once for 5 minutes and everything seems to work. Just concerned about a loose ground wire. It is a thick ground cable so it must be intended for something.

If any of you Outlaw 500 owners get a chance and have the front plastics off your quad, please look at this cable and tell me where it is suppose to be ground to. The one I'm speaking of is attached to the frame just above the battery. There are two black cables that attach to the same location. One of them leads to the negative side of the battery and the other is loose on my quad. Where does the second cable attach to on your quad.

Thanks for any input,

      Hey all new to the forum.... We ended up picking up a 2006 Suzuki z50 quad sport and took it camping this weekend. The guy said had a new top end and just put on a new belt. Seem to work fine for a little bit and then it lost power at the rear wheels. Belt was not in bad shape took a look but it just did not seem to have enough power to get my little guy moving. I pick up the rear end tires would go. Set it down lacked all power.   Any help would be greatly appreciated it did run like a top also.      To add to the bad news on the way home I ended up losing the seat so if anybody has one even if it's in rough shape would love to get it or if you have any ideas open to suggestions......

      Hello Guys!
      Dumb question. How much oil registers on the oil level gauge while running? The oil level reads correct when off, but while running I can only see just a little bit in the oil level gauge. Makes wonder if the oil isn't circulating well enough.
      Also, whats your preference in battery brands for ATV's (standard or AGM). We don't ride it all that often.
      Thanks in advance for any info.

      I have a 2006 Bombardier Outlander 400  that I purchased new.  I use the Outlander for hunting and working around the acreage. Muffler has worn out with holes in it and I am looking for a replacement.  From what I can find, factory mufflers are no longer available.  Are there any after market mufflers that can be found that fit without having to hire an expert welder to get creative?   Not looking for high performance, just a good quiet muffler. thanks
