  1. 2017 sportsman 450 HO turns over but won't fire. My "check engine" light is on. What sort of problems cause that light to go on?
  2. I could use this too.

    Polaris quality

    Purchased a 2017 Sportsman 450 HO in Sept, 2017. Rode it till its first oil change came due. Winterized it, trickle charge on it. Turned key in April 2018 and its dead. No click. Dead. Onboard voltmeter read 11.7 V. Replaced battery. Turned key. Nothing. Turns out the starter solenoid was bad. In 2months of use. and four months of storage. Warranty expired at 6 mos. Onboard voltmeter read 11.7 V on the new battery too. So, Polaris supplies an inaccurate voltmeter and poor quality solenoids. Honda here I come.

  6. Hi, I'm new to this forum and I hope you can help me out. My '99 Polaris 250 Trail boss does this: shifting in to forward the gears grind a bit. Once in gear the rig wants to immediately move forward. If I don't get to the throttle fast enough, she stalls.If I do, off we go. It happens everytime I shift into gear.Could this be caused by dirt inside the clutch sheaves causing the belt to engage early (before any throttle input)? Or what??? Thanks in advance.
