Stator for Polaris Sportsman
If you own an A.C. powered electrical system Polaris ATV, things are looking up for you if the system has failed! In the past, this was a very costly repair. Replacing the whole stator requires partial engine disassembly. This is quite a task for the home mechanic, so, your ATV most likely ended up in a repair shop or at a dealership.
If you are a mechanic, it’s still a chore to repair this stator problem. The OEM parts, plus the oil, gaskets etc. will still run a parts bill in the 700 dollars range and take between 4 and 6 hours for a competent home mechanic. If you are not mechanically inclined, well, you’re in for over 1000$ depending on the year and model of your Polaris ATV.
Ok, a thousand dollar repair on a 10 year old machine? Hummm. No wonder people get rid of them. The thing is, those ATVs in the majority of cases are mechanically sound. They have a lot of years left in them.
These issues covered a broad range of Polaris ATVs. Starting with the 1992 Polaris 400L right up to the 2006 Sportsman 700. That is quite a large selection and Polaris has sold hundreds of thousands.
We have seen quite a few owners that simply gave up sold them or traded them in taking a huge loss on a non-functional machine.
If you own one of these ATVs then this website is for you!
One of our neighbor’s ATV is a prime example. He owns a 2005 Polaris Sportsman 700 with 1500 miles on the odometer. Nearly showroom clean, it’s dealer serviced every year and it spent most of its time in a heated and air conditioned garage. His Sportsman 700 is in perfect mechanical order with barely a scuff or scrape.
This is where things get interesting. He asked us after receiving the repair estimate from the dealer if we had a solution. We started looking online for a solution in the aftermarket. Found some stators that were cheaper and would save him a couple hundred dollars. During our research we stumbled upon a YouTube video of a journalist who was repairing a 2004 Sportsman 600 with the exact same problem.
That video featured a solution from the Canadian company RMSTATOR. Consisting of a CDI box, a new ignition coil and a wire harness with connectors. This kit replaces the defective stator modules and turn the AC powered system into a more reliable DC system. Just about anyone can install these kits within 20 to 30 minutes!
