Well i went and picked up a 1996 or maby 1998 polaris sportsman 400 4x4 2 stroke.. AND HOLY BOHIEMIAN SABOR TOOTH DESER CHICKENS ITS FAST.. its unreal how fast and light it is..  anyways i need to snorkel it and was just wondering if anyone could help me out on that with pictures or something.. im really anxious to snorkel it and really need some bigger tires for it as well..  but with that id need some mods.. so what do yall recomend i do after snorkeling it and putting bigger tires too turn the bigger tires?  also.. there front tire bolt pattern and back tire bolt pattern are different.. could n e one tell me what the back is becouse im pretty sure the front is a polaris bolt pattern..

If its a 2 stroke engine,you have an xplorer 400 not a sportsman 400.Not sure about the snorkels.The bolt pattern on the xplorer is 4-156 mm front,and 4-4inch rear.These things can be made ungodly fast with a little effort.Just keep an eye on the oil injection pump and make sure not to run out.Enjoy.

nope its a 1996 sportsman..  and yeah i know some people ushually pinch of the oil injector and just mix the gas and oil thereselves and put it in the tank.. now id rather do that just in case the oil injector quits injecting. Were is the oil injector? also wat kind of oil would i use and how much should i use in a tank of gas, say a 1 gallon gas tank?

I don't think the sportsmans were ever made 2 Stroke.  Where are the pics of it?  I'm pretty sure it's not a sporty if it's 2 stroke.

yes they did make them as early as 95 . They made Scramblers , Sportsmans , and explorers . and the Explorer 400's where Red . anything that was 500 was 4 stoke .

rear bolt pattern is 4 on 4.  any name brand full synthetic 2 stroke should be ok, klotz is what i prefer, but amsoil and belray are other options.  you need to find out what the factory gas/oil ratio is and mix it like that or you'll end up having to rejet, but i would mix it at 40:1 and rejet anyways.  when you go buy the oil, they should have a ratio rite measuring cup, get one of those, theyre pretty self explanatory.

40 parts gas - 1 part oil.  If youll get the ratio rite thing, itll make it real easy for ya.  It has a bunch of different ratios for different gallons of fuel.
