    Hey guys, I got my 650 running and noticed that the rear Carb wasnt opening up. the front was working as expected. After running it we could feel a difference in heat from the front to the rear. We did a complression test, both were at 75-80psi which my understanding is that its in range. The...

    I have a 2008 Polaris outlaw 525irs and I really want a solid rear axle quad and the prairie 700 and 650 seem the perfect fit for me. I miss being able to slide so easily around corners. Plus to be honest I am not the best at shifting either. I like to cruise usually so the prairie seems like...

    so i have a prairie 650 4x4 and its registered and was sold as a 02' , but when i went to look at the CDI for comparison for when i buy a dynatek , i noticed it has 3 plugs on the CDI .. and from what i understand the 02's should only have 2 plugs . it was heavily modified when i bought it . i...

I received this atv from my father in exchange for some work. It has been a great atv with plenty of power. It...

    I'm trying to find a complete front differential for an 02 Prairie 650 4x4 and am having no luck. I bought it from someone who didn't know there was a hole in the case and ran all the oil out of it. Any suggestions on where to find one? I hope this is in the right part of the forum! Thanks!

    :confused: Bought a Prairie 650 that was already snorkeled. Upon inspection of the set up I found a few gaps that were not sealed. I sealed every one from the intake and the exhaust. I will say this. There are three bolts broke off of the cover. I did remove the cover and place silicone all...
