Polaris Magnum 2001, 325 4X4

4 posts in this topic

Have a 1999 325 Sportsman, 1st I am not a hard rider mainly just putting out to the fish house in the winter, getting me and the dogs into our grouse hunting spots during our month long hunt, pulling in 3 deer last season, plus pulling a small trailer during yard work and woods clean up.

Things I like are it always started very easily, is economic on gas, very easy to steer in 2 wheel drive, nice medium size for riding on tight trails, tight turning radius, 2 to 4 wheel drive button, very good brakes.

Things I don’t like are low ground clearance so it gets stuck easier than other ATVs, when I switch from 4 wheel drive to 2 the right front stays locked in until I back up while moving the handle bars back and forth, having to hold in a yellow button while in reverse to get 4 wheel drive in reverse and a smooth reverse ride, 1500 pound winch is almost worthless except for raising and lowering the small plow, only one brake lever on the handle bars.

I bought it used with 325 miles on it. It came with a winch and a small plow. I did a little refurbish work on it, use the heck out of it and would do it again.

Well put Tink.

Also keep in mind this machine is no powerhouse but has enough to do the chores that Tink has mentioned.

The front right hub stick is an issue of set up and might just need an adjustment. I know there was a post a while back about this on the larger Sportsmans.

Nice machine....

I bought mine used 3 years ago and the only issue was overheating issue. Now fixed(Temp) see my previous post "Overheating"

I would agree 100% with Tink's post. (Although I do have a bigger wench on mine and seems to work well for docks and such)

I also use mine alot. At least 2-3 times a week year round...

Good luck.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
