I recently picked up this 2009 Polaris Ranger 700 XP from a buddy of mine. Has 910 hours and 6100 miles on it. He bought it brand new. It had been sitting for about a year so needs some work. I removed the fuel pump which was very corroded and replaced it with a new one. The fuel tank was very dirty so removed it to clean out. There was a wire harness that had broken wires so replaced that. Put some new spark plugs with fresh fluids and now have it running. I believe the primary drive clutch is bad so have another one on the way to replace it with. It still needs some suspension parts replaced due to being worn and new tires. If all works out as planned I should have it back on the road for under $2K. Fingers crossed.

This was the fuel pump I removed. The fuel tank was pretty dirty as well. Today I plan on replacing the primary drive clutch and belt.

Nice! I have a 2006 that I acquired in a similar way. Dropped around $600 in it fixing it up, but now it's a great machine. That 700 will boogie.

I'm into it for right under $1000 including what I paid for it. However, the same guy gave me some miscellaneous truck parts that he no longer wanted. I already sold some of the stuff for $400 so I'm really only into it for about $600 if that makes sense. And I still have parts that need to be sold which should bring me around $500 - $600 when sold.

I still need a new steering rack, tires and most likely new axles all the way around. Probably around $1000 in parts depending on which ones I go with. Then I hope I'll have it where I'm happy with it.

That model was only made for 1 year...you got the new body style with the old dependable 700. When I bought mine almost 10 years ago I specifically sought out that one year model. The 800's had heat issues and the 700's only known issue was a wiring harness. Great dependable machine...mine is due a new belt, fluids and the adjustable steering hydraulic is not locking like it should...need to get that addressed.

Congrats and nice find!

Thanks, I installed a new primary clutch and belt last weekend. It runs and drives but the steering rack is shot. Also have a rattling noise coming from underneath towards the front and finally located the problem. Worn out u-joint on the front prop shaft. I just ordered a new Rack Boss steering rack, all new axles and wheel bearings and the u-joints. This machine is pretty fast, got it up to 55 mph but was a bit scary with the worn out steering rack so until it's replaced I'll keep it parked.

Thanks, worked on it for a few days last week replacing the rack and pinion, front cv axles and the prop shaft u-joints. After some issues I finally got it done but still have to replace the rear cv axles this week. I'll more than likely replace the brake pads as well and should hopefully be close to done with it for now. Had a offer of $5K this weekend to purchase it once I'm done with it but don't plan on selling it.

Thanks. I'm getting a little tempted to maybe sell it for a good profit and use that money for other hunting stuff I would actually use more than this Ranger.
