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.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
