    Hi, I have only used a snowmobile once, but this question is actually for a go kart. I have a motor from a 2004 Yamaha Viper and a Secondary clutch from a 2000 Polaris 800 RKM. I also have the Yamaha secondary clutch, but it is splined and uses a 25mm shaft. The Polaris Secondary is 1in keyed...

    In a previous post I had asked about lights dying on me, which turned out to be the voltage regulator. Replaced tonight and it's working 100%. I also started replacing a broken temp gauge and fixed the rear hand warmers on the sled tonight. Very productive day! I did however notice that the...

    I’ve posted about this sled a few different times when i’ve run into different problems. My last problem was fuel delivery.

    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.

    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...

    I own a 96 Polaris Indy Ultra 680 triple, and it hasn’t been running for years. Its seized, so I wanted to rebuild it. I took it apart and took of the cylinders, but the pistons still won’t budge when I pull the starter? Is it a crankshaft problem?

With this voltage regulator not working is this going to have any other electrical problems because of...
