Does the cooling fan ever run when the engine is hot? If not, you may have a problem with the fan thermostat.

For the record, spray carburetor cleaner does no good if it's sprayed on the outside of the carburetor with the engine running. That's not what it's for.

I need a wiring diagram as my son connected the battery wrong negitive to positive need to see what all is wrong


There is a fuse link at the Positive battery terminal wire. It will blow to protect the circuits if the battery is hooked up backwards.
It is a smaller gauge section in the wire that melts to save systems. any auto parts store has one

Will a 2002 Polaris sportsman ho 500motor and all accessories fit onto a 2002 polaris 700 sportsman frame


They're not compatible - officially. May just depend on how willing you are to make it work. Either way - the 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700 shows as only being compatible with the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Sportsman 700 & 600 - both models both years. Now - they look pretty close, but if you cross check (Looks like Polaris did a mid-model swap or something). There are (2) frames listed for the 2002 Polaris Sportsman 500 -
First Option - built before 9/3/01 Part # 1013325-067
01 - 02 SPORTSMAN 400
01 - 02 SPORTSMAN 500
01 WORKER 500

SECOND OPTION/AFTER 9.3.01 1013729-067
- JUST THE 02 SPORTSMAN 500

I attached the link to the schematic for you to see. To do a cross reference, copy the part number instead of pressing it (clicking on the part # a lot of the times doesn't show you full compatiblity). Then on the top banner, click OEM Genuine Parts, Polaris, ATV - there will be a parts search bar on the right hand side - paste your part # there and click search. If there are group compatibilities that they've added over time you'll see more than one 'where used' - just click on each one if you have to, but you'll see all compatible models.

copy part number
go back to page one of OEM Polaris parts
paste in search box
click on 'where used' in red to the right of the listing. If more than one - notate each as you go - but you'll see everywhere it was used. I've got a frame from a 2000 Polaris Expedition 425 4x4 with swingarm attached - I'd sell basically for shipping cost on ebay - if you're close to North Florida and in the area - I'd give it to you for $50, FYI. Here's a link to the listing and pictures in there - looks like a copy of the sportsman. If you get to zooming in on both and this looks like a match let me know. And a lot of parts were interchangeable for years on top of years from some parts - check out my ebay store (It's not finished but a lot of parts are on their) subscribe as a follower - and I'll give you 30% off your first order as a Thank You. I price to sell and compete, by the way - free shipping on almost everything - and all you have to do is shop around on there to see where I stand. 17 South Industries, LLC - I could use some help just gettting the name out there and word of mouth. All the best - Good Luck
