The OEM battery location down on the lower frame on the Sportsman 450/570 is horrible. Not only is it very hard to reach for charging or maintenance but it is totally vulnerable to being swamped in water and mud. It’s also very close to the prop shaft which could damage it. It’s almost like Polaris forgot about the battery when designing this chassis and then found the only place they could put it.
Leave it up to us to solve another Polaris blunder! This nice battery relocation kit puts the battery above the rear left tire like most Sportsman’s have traditionally had it. It is much more protected and way easier to access! We made a heavy duty steel battery box that mounts to the frame and sway bar tube. You then re-use your original battery shroud, cover and strap to mount the battery. To get power back there we include a nice terminal block and new heavy gauge battery cables to run power from the original location to the new battery location. All hardware and mounting instructions are included. You will be very glad you did this kit, it makes battery maintenance way easier!
The 2014 Sportsman 570 did not come with a battery shield from the factory. This 2014 specific kit includes the OEM Polaris battery shield and battery tie down straps. This kit also works with all the other 570 models but includes the replacement shield and battery tie down strap. This kit includes Polaris part numbers 5259571, 5412499, 7010032.
This battery relocation kit will fit all standard and touring Sportsman 450 and 570’s from 2014-20. Does not fit the X2 models because of the bed.
NOTE: This kit does NOT include a new battery, it just relocates your original battery.
