Hey everyone, got a strike 1000 in on a trade awhile back, me being dumb I didn’t check the fluid when I got it. Turn out guy had swamped it pretty good. Front diff, rear diff, and trans were full of water/oil/sludge. I don’t have a service manual only an owners manual and it do not state the type of oil the the trans takes or where the filler cap is for it. I have everything else taken care of so far just not the trans.
Any help is appreciated.
So I just bought a 2012 Wildcat 1000. When I bought it, it was throwing the code P0500. I followed suit and replaced the speed trigger and speed sensor. The speedo and odometer still didn't work. I went ahead and cleaned all connections including to the LCD gauge. This past weekend, we rode and at acceleration I continued getting the P0500 code along with C1312. After riding a couple miles, the speedo starting acting crazy and then all of a sudden worked. I found after I cut off the machine, on restart, back to the codes until I rode a couple miles. Any help on how to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

So, im new to UTV's always ridden ATV's typically the Polaris 850's and such and a few Rubicon's. Moved into the county with some land and figured I'd get back into the country mud. I've been doing some research on UTV's and I am impressed, I went to the local pony powersports and sat in a few atvs, being 6ft1 and 360lbs I wanted to make sure I could fit into one of them comfortably before doing my research on which one I wanted. My conclusion was - the Honda Pioneer 1000 limited edition , or the Polaris ranger xp 1000 (would prefer the highlander edition). I was trying to do some research on which one is better, I know they are both leaders in the industry from the research I have done. I'll mostly be driving through creeks taking it to some trails and moving some things here and there (firewood, fallen trees, ect.) the years im considering are 2017,2018 and if there is a big enough change in the model that a 2019 would make more sense then I would do that. Looking to spend 20k ish. Any help on deciding the better of the rangers and pioneers would be appreciated, or if you have another UTV a bigger guy should look into!
I have a 2009 Trooper that when I first start it it runs great but after about a min it starts to cut out under acceleration but clears out when it gets revved up. I downloaded the manual from Joyner-usa.com but it doesn't help much, Mine doesn't have a OBD port on it and my son who is a mechanic said he can wire one in if we have a wiring diagram for the CPU but the wiring diagram of the CPU that is in the manual is for a 3 cylinder engine. The manual talks about a MIL light that can flash out a code but I don't know where that is and even if I did find it they don't tell me how to read it. I have tried the coil and the map sensor and that didn't help I checked the TPS and it checks OK. I emailed Joyner and all I got from them is there should be a OBD port on it and then they said they checked and found some don't have it, No help from them. Anybody run into this problem or know were I can turn to get some help on this, even a good wiring diagram of the CPU would be a big help.
Thanks for you help
A few pictures (so far) of the engine work - eventually I will share wiring info and other details (if anyone is interested?) should anyone else ever need to swap an engine in one of these. The replacement engine is a Harbor freight $750 special 670cc, (lawn mower/industrial type lump) with a few minor upgrades. Should have it back together soon, bolted in. The cold weather slows me down!
