2000 Sportsman 335 Front Handle Travel

Howdy! I just inherited an 2000 Sportsman 335 and have a long list of things to do. It runs and stops right now, but the front brake handle has a ton of play.

Basically, the base of the handle is about 3/4" from the piston and I have the depress it almost all the way to the handlebar to engage the brakes at all. As this is my first ATV, I have been reading a ton of forum posts, but thought I would start from scratch with this post.

I plan to bleed the entire system and replace the fluid (calls for DOT 3 and that is what I bought, although I suspect DOT 4 would also be okay). If bleeding the system doesn't fix the problem, I am guessing I will have have to rebuild the master cylinder.

Thoughts? suggestions? best place to get a rebuild kit?

Thanks,
Brandon

2013 Outlaw 50 Speed and Torque

Accidently wrote 2013 in the title (can't seem to edit that) but it's a 2016

I bought my son a 2016 Polaris Outlaw 50 but he's use to a Scrambler 50 my niece rides. I have no problems with the Outlaw 50, I think it's great for what it is but it's only hitting a top speed of 12 and doesn't have nearly the power of the Scrambler. I realize the Scrambler is a 2 stroke and I don't need the Outlaw to hit 20mph like that one does but the Outlaw just seems really slow and weak compared to it. Is there a CDI I can swap out or any other mods that can be done to make this thing last a little while longer? He's nowhere near ready for a 90 and my next ones going to be a 2 stroke if all the 4 strokes are like this so that jump is a long ways off.

Thanks.

Where is the brake Switch?!

I have a dead short related to the brake switch and the tail light connector on my 1999 Sportsman 500 Big Boss, 6x6.

You would think the brake switch would sit right there on the left caliper. . . but it doesn't. Where in the world is this thing? It shows up on the electrical diagram but I can't find it. It must be somewhere near a brake right?!:nerd

1995 Sportsman 400 starter

Anyone know if there is a negative wire going to or from the starter. Just put a new one in and there is a spot for the negative, but the old one didn't have one attached and I don't see one hanging in the psot.
