    If you can locate the neutral safety switch.  It should also be the reverse switch.  Inspect the wiring and even unplug it and see what happens.  Maybe it’s possible that it’s poorly placed and burnt against the engine or exhaust ?  Also I would pull each fuse one at a time for any of the accessories and see if it does this. 

    Thanks Frank. I'll try that.

  2. My first long ride on my latest bike, an '18 Kodiak 450 EPS I bought slightly used failed. In the North woods I stop on a two track for a blowdown. I Shift into reverse, and instantly the engine dies. Completely dead. The shop tells me that the  40 amp main fuse(there are two, One being the main the other for the EPS) blew. These are the slow blow variety. The shop had to order the fuse,which tells me that blowing that fuse is rare. I hope they can find the cause. Anyone else have this happen?

  3. Hi,

    I just bought am '18 Kodiak 450. I would prefer the handlebars higher for a more upright position. Are there bar "risers" available to raise them as you can do on motorcycles?

    Hi Jacob,

    Oh ok, good to know. You can get some Kodiaks pretty dang cheap. Maybe that'll be my best bet.




  4. 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.

  5. 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.
