Any Polaris ATV Experts Out There?
I have a 2008 Polaris 500 Sportsman that I bought used in 2012. It's been great and I use it a lot around the property. I've only had to buy a battery, gas, oil, and filters in the last 8 years. Something went wrong this summer and I hate to take it to the dealer in Indy ($$$) if I don't have to. It starts and runs fine except when I go into reverse. It will die after a few seconds but restarts right away only to die again when I try to move. When this happens I see the speedo going crazy. I find if I push the yellow "rev override" button on the left grip I can drive in reverse. Has anyone seen this?
It's too late for me, save yourself.
