2020 570 FS Crew - manufactured new battery bracket and installed a full size Marine Deep Cycle starting battery. Works great. Will not have any issues running the light bars without the engine running.Should never have battery issues.
I took my new Ranger back to my dealer so as to complete my street legal kit (they have to sign off). Also got a new fiberglass handled shovel as it fits my rack better than a contoured wood handle.
Now I am ready to hit the hills. Doing an evening/night ride tomorrow night... Should be fun!
My 2005 Ranger 500 took a rest and just anchored the new log splitter.
The new rear-view mirrors are mounted vertically on the roll bar posts just inside the door. They don't get whacked by branches and give a decent look down both sides, until I zip the doors back on in the Fall.
Changed engine oil and filter. Switched to Castrol Synthetic 4T 10w-50 as it has good reviews and costs less than the "Polaris" stuff (plus I liked that it goes to 50 wt which is good as it's always HOT here in FL). Filter is now a Wix 51356xp (attached pic is for reference when I was considering running the non-xp version). View attachment 130916
Changed rear diff fluid and used Lucas Oils 80w-90 gear oil
Changed front diff fluid and used Polaris Demand Drive
Haha. Considering doing the same today. I like yourself like to wrench and screw around with these toys. I have a NBS xp but can’t stand the stock clutch jerkiness. Let me know how the Duraclutch is working for ya. 👍
With the OE clutch I definitely felt like it was a matter of when, not if, I'd launch myself through the back of the garage.
Duraclutch is in it now and while the throttle is still a little jumpy, the clutch engagement is like buttah. Soooo smooth.
Now I feel comfortable tossing the keys to my girlfriend, who is self-admittedly clumsy.
Today I rewired my box harness to have a standard trailer 4-way flat plug, and added a trailer converter to the main harness, so now I can use the polaris taillights for left turn and right turn (with a $3 flasher and a couple toggle switches), and stop, and also have a standard 4-way flat plug at the back to run trailer lights.
non-standard trailer converter needed because the polaris switches negative on the brakes:
(also used on some ford/lincoln products)
<p>When your vehicle does not readily provide an electrical connection for hooking up your trailer, CURT electrical converts offer the solution. Working tail lights on your trailer are absolutely essential any time you tow, and a converter provides an effective way to properly equip your vehicle...
Hey guys just bought a 2020 ranger xp1000. Already bought front and rear wind shields. I want to lift it though it fit at least 28s with no rub. I hear 30s are rough on axels. For a reliable lifted ride should I get just a standard 3in lift or get forward high clearance a arms aswell. Thanks for...
I decided to try to figure out a way to grease ball joints. I usually do not have mine in water except to pressure wash. I drilled a 1/8" hole in center. I used a needle type grease gun adapter. Was able to move grease on thru. Can plug hole as desired between greasing. Will take a long...
Looking at a set of mattracks xt ur plus. Putting them on my 20 northstar.
They are double the money for a Polaris set. They appear to be very well made with suspension in the track. What are your thoughts?
