How to Change a Starter on a Polaris ATV


Polaris ATVs are reliable and fun to ride. Most Polaris ATVs come with a push-button start mechanism that engages the starter and solenoid in the ATV to jump-start the motor. Over time the starter may wear or break, requiring replacement. The starter on most Polaris ATVs is fairly difficult to locate. However, by following a few easy steps, any home mechanic can replace the starter on his Polaris ATV.

Tools Used: Tools, Phillips Head screwdriver, Socket wrench
