  2. There is a huge debate in winches being bought for ATV's lately here is my opinion well first the debate is what pound winch to get what brand and what to go with metal corded or the Synthetic winch i would go with a 2000 pound warn synthetic synthetic because the metal cord over time frays and the little metal wire poke out and stab the crap out of your hands and can even cut you really good if your not careful I ride with riding gloves but i don't use metal cord because i don't want to have to put on leather gloves just to use my winch on a trail synthetic doesn't fray and is easier on the winch its self not as much friction when unspooling let me know what you guys use what brand weight rating and synthetic or metal cord
  3. easiest way to mount a winch on a quad if you don't have any winch mount or metal to mount a winch is weld a thick peace of metal on your font either frame or bumper of your quad and attach the winch somewhere out of the sun and somewhere were rocks won't get in it or anything else that can damage the winch just remember if you have a 600 puns quad don't get a 700 pound winch get a winch that has a higher load rating then what your quad is get a 1000 puns rated or even a 2000 pound winch and on an tav don't be cheap with you winch it never works out well some winches at even harbor freight for a 1000 one is like 200 are better than some off brand ones for 500 and those types of off brands tend to brake way easier they won't even work with a little bit of dirt ,water ,mud etc
  4. I have a 2001 polaris scrambler 500 (2x4) I have recently added a K&N filter with filter cover FMF power core 4 muffler I wrapped my exhaust in heat wrap I have noticed an increase an power it gets to top speed way quick but i was wondering about my rpm's i have noticed just going about 20 mph my rpm's are higher than they used to be people have told me i need to replace my clutch aka get a clutch kit i know i need to replace the belt already looked at it will a clutch kit help lower the rpm's or is it because i have more air running in and out of the quad because of the K&n and a fmf muffler which allows more air flow their for more power.
  5. why do you like polaris instead of can am or kawasaki
  6. for those of you who don't know it stands for ATV=ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE UTV= Utility Task Vehicle or ROV (Recreational Off highway vehicle) FMF=flying machine factory IF YOU DIDNT KNOW THIS NO BIGGY LOTS OF RIDERS DONT ESPECIALLY NEW ONES
  7. I use polaris brand oil for my you guessed it my polaris scrambler 01 500 2x4 its great tell me what you use sometimes i use other stuff but you have to watch out with atv oil some makers in production get dust and dirt in the oil and sometimes even metal particles
  8. I have an 01 polaris scrambler 500 2x4 i think the dry weight is 523 lbs ya it is its on the manual but my quad probably ways a little bit less has a rear rack that is meant for like a cooler a 6 pack rack which is lighter than what came on there and have a fmf muffler which is significantly lighter than those heavy stock polaris mufflers i call them water spouts because it looks like something water or coffee would come out of but then again i did add a 7 inch light bar that about 5 pounds added a k&n filter 1 pound heavier lol just kidding its lighter than it was stock which is good because these are heavier quads.
  9. just buff it with wax and on the black plastics by the motor use tire shine it will look like a brand new bike
  10. ya i am very experiences with fixing just about anything with a motor from the 70's and up cars trucks atv's but i don't know just clutch you have all the springs and stuff ill problem do it my self anyway but i have done them before just not on something with this big of a clutch and a centrifugal force clutch but it looks easy by the video i will comment if i have any further questions are you just one person you answer all my questions every time
  11. I would say these are my favorites -AMAZON.COM but make sure its sold by the company even if shipped by other company they still have to use normal return policy and can't say we didn't sell it to you they did. ROCKYMOUNTAINATV.COM. Search amazon for better prices on some stuff EBAY.COM(THERE IS SPECULATIONS EBAY IS PRIVATE SELLERS I HAVE NOT ORDERD ANYTHING FOR MY QUAD FROM THEM YET BUT I AM GOING TO LOOKING FOR A REAR RACK FOR MY SCRAMBLER BUT NOT THE NEWER ONES THAT ARE ROUNDER THOSE ARE UGLY BEWARE OF ALL EBAY SCAMS AND DOES AND DONT BUYS) The #1 Online Dirt Bike & Motocross Store - Shop With The Guys That Ride | MotoSport I DONT USUALLY HAVE TO BUY PARTS FOR MY SCRAMBLER POLARIS IF TAKEN CARE OF AND MAINTAINED SEEM LIKE THEY LAST FOREVER BUT THIS IS WITH MOST ATV'S
  12. ya its an EPI is a clutch kit hard to install i saw a vid and the guy said if you want to take the clutch or remove it from the bike you need a specialty tool but when he was doing he said you need like a clamp to compress the spring and stuff is it worth doing it yourself DUI or having a shop do it -SFI-shop fix it.
  13. show me your polaris scrambler or trailblazer post some pics and post what you have added to the bike i have a 2001 polaris scrambler 500(2x4) with -K&n filter and filter cover -fmf powercore 4 muffler -led light bar 7 inch -exhaust wrap -acerbis handguards -grip sandpaper on floor boards for maximum foot grip -scott grips -handle bar pad
