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.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
