    I’ve posted about this sled a few different times when i’ve run into different problems. My last problem was fuel delivery. I found out the fuel shutoff valve was clogged and when I took that out and ran a direct fuel line and blew into the tank to pressurize the lines and it started after a few...

    So I recently bought an Indy 400. I have hooked up all tubing and I put oil and bled the oil pump. I put in coolant and propped up the front end to try and burp it. I was gonna start it to burp it some more to get rid of air bubbles but I'm not getting fuel. I checked the tank to make sure the...

    Hey guys, I have a 1994 xlt 580 and I am debating doing a rebuild now or next year. The sled runs good and usually starts in about 2-3 pulls but it's starting to take about 5 or 6 pulls to start. All the cylinder are withing 3 psi but they are only around 95 cold and 100 warm. I was debating...

    Hi there! I’m new to this forum! I recently bought a Polaris Indy 400 and i’m currently trying to fix it up. I was hoping someone somewhere would know where to find a repair manual for fluids and engine mechanics? I’ve looked online and can’t find anything on it. I was curious about the type of...

    Hey guys I just bought a 1999 Indy xc 700 to fix up and when I was going to pull the carbs out I saw this PVC pipe thing above the carbs and I have no idea what is is or what it does.

    Hey, I have a 1994 Indy 580 sks and was wondering what is the best way if any to convert it to a 144? I was thinking an Xtra-10 with extension rails but have heard or some other ways of doing it also. With this conversation also what would I have to do for gearing?

    I have a 1994 Indy 600 Xlt sks and it has almost 6k miles and getting low compression on all cylinders. Cylinder #1 is 93, #2 95, #3 94. I am thinking about doing a rebuild but should I just do rings, or full top end kit, or while it's all apart do all bearings, seals, and everything. What is...

    I have a 1991 Polaris Indy sport 440 and I was out on the lake with a buddy and doing some doughnuts and riding around? and we switched sleds and not even 5 minutes in I hear a loud clunking and go rush over to my sled to see what's going on. I lift the hood and the primary is completely off...

    I have a 1991 Polaris Indy sport 440 and was thinking about getting a pivot and extension block. I haven't measured yet but I want about 6-8" of rise and I don't think that my throttle cable and brake line are long enough. I was wondering if anyone has done this, if I just need to reroute the...

    Does anyone know if I can swap a newer xtra 10 suspension into an '85 Polaris indy trail? Like maybe a suspension from a '99 or older? Any advice helps, thanks.

    I have a 1991 Polaris Indy sport 440 and was wondering if you could put a small LED pod light on it. I have made a diagram with all of the wiring and parts but I haven't seen much on pod lights on a snowmobile with no battery so I was wondering if it would work with the sled and setup or what...

    hi, I have a fairly mint shape 98' indy 500 but in floods randomly, or at least I think that's the issue. Last time it did was in mid ride so i pulled it home. It started the next day but it spit fuel out the exhaust for a good 5 minutes.

    Hello. I have a 1991 Indy sport 440 fan and wanted to know if there is anything you can do to make the sled sit higher. I do mostly ditch banging and wanted to know if there is anything you can do to make the sled sit higher. I know there are many people saying Xtra 10 or Xtra 12 swap it but I...

    I just purchased a 1985 Polaris Indy Trail 440 for $400 in the original maroon color with original seat, has about 5600 miles on it, pretty clean, seems to run good, starts and idles fine. Can anyone tell me a little about these sleds, how reliable they are, average top speed, things like that...
