2003 Polaris Sportsman - Shifter Jamming

Recommended Posts

I bout a 2003 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO 4x4 last month and have been riding with my brother (experience trail rider on a honda) so i could enjoy time with my bro and the ride.

Im glad i did it, worrth every penny i payed for it, But i have a small problem.

The shifter jams on me and i have to take the side cover off and use the linkage to put it in neutral to get it unjammed (Like and old pickup with 3 speed on the tree) how do i fix it so it dont jam.

Please help

I think what is happening is one of the levers on the transmission is jamming up because it is not fully shifting out of gear before you try and select the next gear. Take the nuts off of one end of the rods. make sure everything is in neutral. Now adjust the rods so that they drop into the holes exactly without putting any pressure on the rod ends in either direction. If that doesn't work out for you, you may need a new shift assembly. My friend had the same problem ...

here's a manual to help you out ,,, https://www.yousendit.com/download/UW16S3d0dENsUjlqQThUQw

      Anybody know what the valve clearance is for intake and exhaust on a 2017 sportsman 570?  I did a search but it came up with nothing.
      Thanks

      So, I got this 07' Polaris Outlaw 90 in the shop to rebuild top end and transmission. Replaced all bearings and gears in the transmission. Replaced cylinder and piston with brand new parts. Put the engine back on the frame and fired it up. Started great, but had a taping sound in the lower crank case. pulled the flywheel cover off and found the flywheel was wobbling and hitting the stator. I then replaced the stator and flywheel with brand new parts. Timing is all set on the timing marks now, but when I turn it over it kicks back when it fires and ends up stripping the starter idler gear. I've replaced the starter gear once already and now have to replace it again. Is it possible that the timing marks on the flywheel are off or maybe this flywheel is not for this exact model? Thinking of advancing the timing to try it, but don't want to keep going through idler gears.

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling
