Polaris Sportsman 500 cylinder

Recommended Posts

I'm doing a top end on a '98 Sportsman 500 and wondered if the cylinder is plated or sleeved from the factory? I have not removed the cylinder yet and was curious about my options on going oversized if needed. Any info would be appreciated. Also, where is the cheapest place to get parts? ie piston kit, gaskets

Nevermind, it's iron. Man, not much activity here compared to Thumpertalk.:bonk:

      So we have an 05 sportsman 700 efi, bike has like 500 hours but lower miles. Previous owner used it mostly for plowing snow. In high gear, it really feels like it’s missing power. Our 05 carbuerated 700 will wheelies when you hit the throttle from a stop. This one lags and is slow. My first thought is the clutch slipping, but after reading some posts it’s more as though the rpm lags and takes a while to build up to wide open.  The bike feels like it hooks and has its power while in low gear though. It also does not like to start right up and idle without giving it some gas.  Another note would be that the check engine light is on when you turn the key but goes away when you start it. Any ideas and thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

      Hey guys im between a split decision about getting a quad or a dirtbike. So I was just wondering what your opinions are and dont give me 'it depends on who you are' crap. This is a opinion question just tell me what you really feel and why. And if you can tell me the funfactors of your choice and why you choose whatever it was you did.

      Well, with Polaris using the KTM engine on the Outlaws could there be any chance they will develop a MX bike? They seem to have a reliable customer base for all there products and already work with/through Victory to make harley style cruisers. This is pure speculation, I have NO evidence but it seems to be a natural next step. It would be great to have a good american motorcycle out there, readily available at 90% of motorsport dealers.:bonk: Any support for such a theory?:bonk:

      has anyone else had this problem?ive put in a new float valve and its still getting fuel in the oil and running rough.i checked the vacume pump but it seems to be working alright but im wondering if fuel is somehow getting sucked in through the vac hose from the pump to the intake.
