My 2005 polaris Sportsman 500 does this in the winter when plowing, but only sometimes when pushing the override button to go backwards in 4x4. A friend told be to check the differential fluid levels in the rear for my machine. Have not done this yet.

    I usually keep fluid levels topped up. I am going to put in new front axles. When I take those hubs apart I will see if anything is wrong then.

I have a 08 Sportsman 500HO which the motor starts cutting out between 3600-4600 RPM's


Hi Tom:
Sounds like a challenge.
I'd probably check the ignition system if I thought the fuel supply was working properly.
Replace spark plugs - test run
If there is a manual hi speed adjust screw on the carb, have you tried adjusting it at high RPM?
reply as a comment to this post and I'll try to help.
