My Polaris is pretty reliable, the only time it breaks is when I break it. I am told I can't have nice things. I try to have nice things, but keeping them nice doesn't seem to be as much fun.

wheel hop while in 4x4 is what im shure caused it ...i had a tree branch ..(kinda big) hooked to my 5000 lb wench on the front of it and was pulling backwards and it wheel hopped a couple times and that was the end of it ... and its still sitting here broke ... been fighting with polaris toget it replaced under warrantee ... but looks like im gonna get stuck with it ...

if i could just get polaris to just replace the housing ( thats what really broke ) it would be great ... i would then put my gears in the new husing ... but get-n them to give any thing up is not gonna be easy ... they dont like to warantee any thing if they dont have to .. i guess its a big problem with polaris ..they dont like to warantee any big dollar parts ... its been sitting here now for 3 months ... the warantee ran out 12 days after it broke .. but i had it at the dealer (stealer) 10 days b4 the warantee was up.. so its a fight with them now... the front differential (used on ebay ) sells for $399.00 and up .. and at the dealer is $1400.00 ... im not even asking them to install it .. i will do that ..(about 4 hours work) .. just send me the parts .. wont buy another from the local polaris dealer again...

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?
