What could cause vibration in my Polaris atv 700?


Answer by  worker2746 (2434)

The vibration in your ATV can be caused by tires that are out of alignment, and bad shocks as well. This can lead to vibration. It could also most likely be an issue with exhaust.

A couple things i could think of off the top of my head are either a shoddy transmission, your wheels might need to be realigned, or most likely, if you've recently been in a wreck you've got mud caked under neath your rims that are causing your axels to shake.

Most likely it is the cv shafts. When they go bad they will send vibrations throughout the body. They are a normal wear part and should be inspected yearly.

Make sure your tread is on correctly and that it is not unevenly worn. A very thin tread or one that is about to break can cause some serious vibrations.

I think it could be a tire that is out of balance and or low tire pressure. or it could be that the front end alignment on the ATV is out of alignment. Also not sure if an ATV has ball joints but that could also cause an alignment problem.

Most likely your axles need alignment or possibly a loose lug nut. I've also found it common for snow and mud to get underneath the wheels and may cause shaking.

1) check the drive belt for wear 2) check tire pressure 3) check shocks 4) check fluid levels 5) check for build up of debris that is causing vibration

If you are running aggressive aftermarket tires, likely the vibration is from the knobs in the tire. you may also have wheels out of balance from mud build up. There may also be an issue with a ball joint or CV shaft and I would also consider a bad shock absorber.

It can be vibrating because you ahve a bent rim. It could also be a numerous amount of things such as a tie rod end is bad or it has a bad control arm or something else in the steering system causing it to vibrate and it can be a easy cheap fix.

If it does it when you sit still you may have a worn engine mount but if it does it when you drive it's probably drive-train related.

You may have a lose part somewhere within your ATV. I would check in the area of the engine first.
