polaris explorer

Recommended Posts

I have a 1995 polaris 400 explorer that I'm having trouble putting in reverse. Some times it works fine in reverse other times I have to use the over-ride button to use reverse and sometimes it doesn't work in either mode. I'm getting tired of pushing it backward to put it in my shed. I know I should take it to the shop -----but the age old problem---$$$$$$$$$. Is it a do-it-yourself fix or just give it up and take it in

thanks

Is it possible the idle is set too fast? Might be a dumb question but sometimes this can be overlooked.

On that model there are shift linkages (rods) that run from the shift box that the shift lever is attatched to back to the transmission after a period of time the rod ends can get a little sloppy or sometimes the nuts on them can even come loose, at any rate they can work themselves out of adjustment. You may have to adjust the linkage to take out any slop in them. If they are sloppy you may not be getting the full "throw" and it might make the difference between shifting it into reverse fully. Incidentally, the reverse overide button shouldn't have anything to do with getting it in to reverse or not. The overide button, bypasses the rev limiter in reverse and also controls the 4x4 in reverse. If you don't push the reverse overide button it will not engage the 4 wheel drive in reverse. Hope this helps. Hollar back if you don't find the problem and we'll try again!

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
