Seems to be a hot topic, does this seem specific to the 700 xp, or is this in general regarding the mounts used from Polaris and would be an issue with my 06 500 efi? How can I check my mounts and what should I look for. I would also like to get a repair manual, any input on the best place to score one of these?

I have not heard of any issues with motormounts on the 500's. Just put a crow bar between the frame and engine and try to lift it. Watch the lower mount while you are lifting.

I believe the motor mount issue is one just on the XP. It was more than likely a small number of defective ones got through. Polaris gets these from an outside vendor. I do know that if you go to a Polaris dealer and order that part, it has been replaced with a new number. So, I wouldn't worry about it one way or the other and get the XP if that is what I wanted. There is also a $10 fix at Napa or Advance Auto that is a 61 Ford Falcon transmission mount that will fit perfectly. Go to Curt's parts list in the section listed below for the number.

Also, the service manual can be ordered from any of our sponsor dealers. Go to the sponsor section and call one of them. I think they are around $40. Money well spent in my book.

Which would be the better side to do this from? Should there be any movement at all when doing this?

I believe it is located on the driver's side behind the storage box area. There will be some movement, not a lot. It is obvious when it is busted because the two pieces will move separately.
