Polaris 500 noise and no engine braking.


Recommended Posts

Purchased 2013 Polaris 500 Ranger last week. No engine brake at idle just like in a previous post. Also, just before the freewheeling starts, there is a high pitched whining noise in the differential/tranny area like raw metal rubbing. Called dealer, was advised this is normal. If I had been aware of this problem prior to purchase, there would have been no purchase, this thing seems unsafe. If you release the accelerator on a steep hill the machine will slow down then as the engine reaches idle speed rpm's, the unit makes a screaching sound and goes into freewheeling requiring immediate and hard braking. Anyone out there having the same problem and is there a solution? Thanks

I would bring it to dealer and argue and make them ride with me and demand it be repaired under warranty with no charge to you, or refunded under the "lemon law"

Otherwise u could inspect the cvt continuously variable transmission to see what's going on and repair if needed.

I feel for you, If its bought new it gotta work out the box like intended to.

      At the end of last year my Coleman UT 500 will not go into reverse. I can hold it over toward the reverse to move it nut it won't lock into reverse. Anyone have this problem? Winter is just about over and going to have to get this resolved. Thank You!

      My 2018 Hisun sector crew engine cut off after about 15 minutes run. There is no indicator of what is wrong, no error code just die and won't restart until it cool down. I notice that the fan is not running but the temp indicator is on low temp, no overheat indicator. I checked the radiator fluid, it is cool to touch.
      Cooling fans are working, I can hear it running once awhile if I can get the engine warm up enough.  Thank you for all the help.

      hello everyone, i just joined this forum to try my luck, few days ago i bought an old (dont know exactly), 2011/14 hi sun 500cc ""carburated"",  was not running at the time, but i fell was a good deal and decided it to bring it home to play with it, this is the issue, i bought and installed a new carb, and pump, i repositioned the battery location and upgraded to a "car batt", reconnected the fuel lines and started it, but it only runs with the choke ON, i checked the bowl, it does have fuel,but for some reason wont inject it to run, i came across a video that say that ""the body small tank had to be connected for the cart to run" (was deleted when bought), sure enough i got it to run sporadically , but the so called ""small body tank'' often runs out of fuel and wont refill itself , i had to couple times do it manually, so how does that small tank works ?..what does it do?..and why if  bypass it , the cart wont start?....any help?..thanks so much!!!
