I purchased one from a old man that bought it for his son. Now my family hs five Polaris's. We have fallen in love with Polaris.
We have three 2000 Sportsman 500's that are decked out and one 2004 600 and one 700. I bought the 700 and it was really in bad condition.
I spent six months looking for parts on ebay and craigslist for parts bikes. I ended up finding one on craigslist for $900 that had a nock in the motor.
I used the parts from that bike to rebuild mine. Now it runs great and I'm having so much fun riding it. It has so much power and I love it.
I have decked it out with 27" kenda executioners, 2" lift, ITP 312, and Quadboss Weekender Luggage box and seat. I will have a EPI clutch kit, looney tuned exhaust and custom built radio mounted on the front of it by this summer.
It's the best bike I have ever had and I have had 6 different bikes. So for all of you that think these bikes are junk - maybe you should stop riding it like a bat out of hell and take care of it.
Don't whine about seals, radiators and other stuff going bad when you are the ones that abuse them and don't maintain them. Don't take it through the heavy mud if you think things won't break. Things will break so STOP CRYING ABOUT IT!
