Polaris XLT Parts

8 posts in this topic

Hey all you bubble heads. Where is the best place to get some parts for my sled. Its a 95. I need a plastic piece that the pull rope goes through. It is wore down and the rope catches and wont recoil back in because it catches in it.

Im also looking for some hand shields to keep the wind off my hands.

I need some skis for a 88 indy 400, so will watch for the advice you get. Denis Kirk is good, but looking for used parts if possible.

I had the same problem with the plastic guide and bought a new one from the local polaris dealer (also purchased new recoil rope at the same time from them) and after three weeks the new one was also starting to get a groove. (they must have switched to some really cheap matierial!)

Anyway, I found a round polished ring (similar to one off a 3-ring binder) that was a little smaller in diameter on the inside than the hole that the plastic guide fits in and glued (JB Weld) this in its place so the rope is now guided on this smooth ring.

Northlander...my buddy has an Ultra with the same problem. That is a terrible design on the recoil rope routing. Anyways, he has replaced it like for like and the same happens in a short order. He then found a similarly sized metal collar to replace the plastic. I wasn't too keen on the idea but it shows almost no wear after quite some time.

Where did he find that part at? I would like to have a stainless or something else that wouldnt wear like that cheap plastic design.

    • So, losing pressure when off at night and at low speed fishing. Small leaks like Rebel said sounds about right. If it is running fine when at higher rpm's then the fuel pump, fuel flow and carb are keeping up the pressure needed then. The pressure is slowing leaking out some where which has to be a small leak at the diaphragm, fuel line connectors, or fuel pump seals. Good luck.
    • Parity, lots of parity in this league, that is a good thing but it sure makes it tough to win. Cullen has two cups already including last year so I'd be fine with the Sens or Nashville taking the whole thing. 
    • Pinhole or small tear in diaphragm.
    • Looking for ideas of what to check next.  I have a 1991 75hp Mariner outboard and I am losing pressure on my fuel line.  I have to pump the bulb first time out in the morning and then again if I fish in one spot for a while.  If I do not it will bog down on me and may or may not kill.  If I pump the bulb too much while I am bogging down I will partially flood the motor and kill it.  I then have to turn the key for several 15 second bursts or more to start the motor.   I have replace the bulb fuel line twice to make sure I didn't get a bad one the first time.  I also replaced the fuel line from my built in gas tank to where it goes to connect with the bulb gas line.   Does this sound like the fuel pump?  I want to eliminate any cheap fixes that I can before replacing the fuel pump.  I blew a cylinder a few years ago and I assume the carbs were all redone at that time by my guy.   I owned it for the past 20 years and I have only used non oxy fuel.   Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any help.
    • Preds make it to the finals.  I thought someone said they were the last team in and technically the 16 seed.   Who ever they face in the finals it will be a battle, hope the Sens make it.  But would be nice to see Cullen get a cup.
    • My hunt in WI this past weekend was tough as well.  I found tons of ramps, they grow everywhere in the area we hunted, but zero morels.  I saw a few pheasant backs, but did not pick them as they did not interest me.  
    • I finally just said screw it, so I picked a couple of guys that I thought would do good (Christie, and Rojas) and some over looked guys that have had a little success this year, and were from the area.  Would never had expected Alton Jones Jr, to go from 80 something place on day 1 to the top 12.  Glad he was on my team though
    • Added these for the fry pan to go with some turkey also.  
    • If you haven't planted your tomatoes yet......plant them laying down on their side. Pick off all the branches up to the top.Lay the plant in a trench and cover the stem up to the top. Put a soil pillow under the top. Just be careful not to break the stem (I have). Tomatoes are the only plant that will send out roots from the buried stem. You will wind up with a large root ball to feed the plant. This also puts the roots closer to the surface where the soil is warmer instead of deep where it is cool.
    • Another disaster. I tried making relatively safe picks, and bombed. I have gone from the top 60 after two events all the way down to just over the 90th percentile. I need to just go with my gut
