2004 Polaris Predator 500 - Help/Advice

Recommended Posts

Ok so I'm about 90% sure that I I'm gonna go pick up a 2004 Polaris Predator 500 this weekend but I want to get some advice/help before I did. Its pretty beat up but I'm not too worried about cosmetics, I was just wanting to know durable they are mechanically, its a great price at $1200 but I talked down to $1000. I have a 2001 250EX and have drug it through hell and back and it just won't break. Seems like the harder I ride it the stronger it gets lol. I wanna just make sure that the Pred isn't Junk. The guy that has it told me he jetted and bored it also. But for $1000 its gonna be pretty hard to turn down. Anything helps :)

The Predator is my dream quad, I have wanted one since they first came out. I don't really have any info on them though. I know they only had a short run before they turned into the Outlaw. Best bet would be to do some web research and see what you can find. $1000 is a pretty good deal on anything, but I would check for available parts and upgrades first with it being a discontinued model.

$1,000 seems like a good deal to me...

Thanks guys. Yea I did some looking around on the web and parts seem pretty available. So I'm gonna go look at it and make sure its not totally ragged out. Reviews on the durability of it have been mixed. Most of them were good though. If all else fails it might be a good project to start.

      Hello. I got this fourwheeler to fix for my buddy. It wasnt starting at all when I got it so I opened the valve cover up and checked the timing and the timing was way off. I set the timing bolted all back together and it started. It only stays running with very little throttle applied. There is a weird noise coming from the engine and it smells like its burning and also smokes from the headers. I posted a video idk how helpful it will be but I need some advice on the next step. I want to say it's the piston and rings, but I'm not too sure was also thinking something was up with the valves. Thought I would get some advice before trying anything. Thanks!

      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.
