Default AWD 98 Polaris 500 sportsman

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the web site info on the front hubs. I've been through both hubs, cleaned , manually checked the rollers, bearings, and .001-.003 clearance on the coils, all checks out OK. I noticed that the bulb in the AWD switch doesn't even come on, replaced it with a new one and it still doesn't come on. I've traced the wires back to the junction block, all are ok. Shouldn't there be 12 volts at the switch on the handlebar? I don't have it there, any suggestions? Thanks, NV Buzzard

Your AWD switch may need fixing or replacing. The older push button type switch were bad for acting up, thats why polaris went to the slide switch.

Read this info.ATV Time :: View topic - Polaris Demand Drive Hub Q&A Picture Guide to Service

The Castle Nut must not go beyond 14ft/lb.
Also the armature plates condition.

Quote:
Notice how there are wear marks on the plate, there is a shiny mark on the inside and outside of the plate, you should really only have a wear mark on the outer edge, not the inside as this one is shown, they may still work this way but its not optimum

(UPDATE)

Something I forgot to mention earlier and consider to be of pertinent information is:

After awhile the armature plate will gain slight magnetism from being around a magnet so much, this will cause your 4X4 to be very erratic. You really can't do harm to put new armature plates in when you service these hubs. Although if you would like to try and use what you have hold your armature plate to a piece of steel and see if you can feel any magnetism at all, it will be minor, if you can you either need new ones or you can try a suitable de-magnetiser.
