Called to order this and was offered one of two options.....either the reverse over ride switch for $104.00 or the whole box encompassing the start switch, head lights, etc. Do you mean the "whole box" or can i just get away with the switch? I read your post, and am really not ADD despite what it may seem....it's just that the whole box is $230.00, and I want to make sure.

I'm sure you have worked on every Polaris ever made but you are giving this kid back yard mechanic advice.
I don't have to call anyone. I used to own a 94 400 two stroke and I have worked on hundreds of them.
I KNOW they are not supposed to die if you put them in reverse without pushing the overide.
IF you had one that did then then YOU had a problem with YOUR ATV.
holy smoke, what did you ever do this person to cause such treatment? i would agree that it sounds odd that if you put a bike(any bike by anyone) that it would be made to kill the engine. unless were talking about a lawn mower(riding) when the blades are engauged and then put it in reverse it will kill the engine for safety. but i myself am far from being an expert lol.
deerkiller its not agaist the law to be wrong just say your wrong dont cause a problem over how right and how wrong.if you shift to reverse the motor should stay on intill the killswitch is hit simple as that
