Well its finally happened, its time to replace the belt on my 2011 Polaris Sportsman 500 H.O. Is there anything specific i need to know before getting into it? Is there one brand of belt i should get over another? I'm still on my first Polaris and plan to keep it at least another 8 years.
I have a 2011 850 Sportsman. Has been absolutely trouble free except for 1 thing. I am on my 4th. ignition switch. I don't know if it's that they are all chinese junk or what. It gets to a point when you turn the key and it will act like the battery is going bad. Cranks real slow or not at all. Put a new switch in and its fine. New one will last 1 1/2 - 2 years and its junk. I've had the Polaris brand and after market. As a matter of fact the original one lasted the lest amount of time. Other than that it's been a perfect machine . No electrical problems. No battery problems. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issue.
The engine oil dipstick on my 550XP took a dump and the bottom 1/3 was missing. Apparently it's a common occurrence from the bit of reading I've done on it. Anyway I'm not gonna replace it just to have it happen again so I cut the rest of it off and ground it flat to use as a plug.
So now with no dipstick to check oil level I have some choices.
-Buy another dipstick to use as a dipstick...NOT
-Do an oil change and build a depth checker from the new full level
-ask the good people on QuadCrazy! Any one with a like year 550XP wanna measure their dipstick from the base to the end so I can make an oil level check stick?

I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
