That's one of the pluses of owning a Polaris.

You become more proficient at fixing off road vehicles.

At least the bracket is what broke. Easy fix really.

The parking pin in the transmission are known to sear off when taking it out of park into gear.  It happens when there's too much tension while parked on an incline.

It's rare. But a known thing. It's why a lot of folks put a parking brake on their machine. Takes the pressure off that pin when on a hill.

If you saw the size of the parking pawl inside the transmission you would really wince, same thing for the reverse chain, bicycles have bigger chains.

Very easy to install.

The neoprene lock nuts will not engage the threads again. I don't remember if the instructions say to, but I just put some blue locktite on the bolts. Don't over tighten. You don't want to mess up the master cylinder.

I had to adjust the brake pedal for the latch. Easy task. All in the instructions.

Oh, and remove at least your front sway bar on that rig.

It'll improve the ride immensely.

Yeah polaris welding sucks. I’ve had to weld my driver seat retaining tab on the front twice. Twice because I’m not any better than the welders at polaris.

I also ignited my floorboard the second time. It’s real ugly under there.

I'll watch out for all of that. I almost ordered it from the link provided, but decided to take a look on Amazon, and found it there for $20. Having a $60 discount was nice.
Scary. My rides are pretty mellow though, mostly on my trails here. (Less than ten acres). I drive it on the road a little, when going to my friends house. That's maybe 100 yard gravel, and 75 yards blacktop. Otherwise, I'm on my gravel driveway or dirt trail through the woods.
Here's from almost up to our pond, which the farthest point (trail loops around it), coming back to the house;

The $20 ones on Amazon may be are knock-offs. Just FYI.

Keep the rear sway bar on to keep the "roll" at a minimum. Either way you can put the bars back on if you don't like it. Just gives the shocks full articulation.

What years don't have it? I can easily look up reverse chains and transmission breakdowns with a reverse chain. [part 53]

Might have to adjust your cable?

Check that the bracket you welded hasn't moved too.

I thought about that, and kept looking back and forth between the two sites. I couldn't see any difference at all. Metal thickness, spring, and paint job all looked the same to me. I guess the metal may be a lower grade, but it looked like the same thing. I hope it's just as good, if it's a knock-off.

For what it's worth, your actively shitting on a small American business to save a few bucks and there have been reported issues

Very simple. Just bolts on the back of the master cylinder.

Mine hasn't arrived yet, but I was looking at the pedals today. I'm guessing that it'll mount to the two lower bolts, one on each side of the brake pedal.

If you need a bracket cut, give me length and even measurements on bolt holes and I will see what I can do.

Sounds like you have a hard shift in your transmission. Might not hurt to have it looked at. My Polaris 500 gets stiff and has a bushing that needs replaced every so often. But on the other hand that weld was pretty poor. Can you reach the shift lever on the transmission and see if it shifts easily? If it's shifting easy it's likely the cable is bad but if it is rough and grinding the shift bushing is wore out.

I'll check with my friend, and see if we can make a bracket out of these pieces I have or some scrap that he has, maybe tonight. If we can't do that, I may start taking measurements. Thank you.

Most welcome. I know I have a 4 ft angle iron from tractor supply and I think 2" flat in a 4' piece from there too.

A good weld should be fine.  Maybe weld a gusset in to reinforce it.  I'm sure your friend wanted to be helpful but get someone who knows how to weld and it'll never come loose again.

That's too bad it failed. But I agree with ColtRifle here.

Don't know if these pictures will help with ideas, but this is mine when I had the center console removed for something (I believe the winch install).  All before the first off road trip, so all clean.
