I have very limited knowledge of Peg since none of the ones I currently own have not had any problems...until now.

The Polaris 700 stopped working one day. I hooked up the battery in it and it took off fine for a few seconds. Then it stopped and now it will not go at all. I'm not all familiar with it but I'm guessing the problem is one of the 2 circuit breakers. As I recall, there is one on the battery and one under the pedal switch.

First, I plan to upgrade this to 18V (one of these days) and need to see pics (or how to) on installing a jumper to bypass the breaker near the pedal switch.

Second, I'm assuming I can just remove the breaker on the battery wiring harness and replace with a regular spade?

Thanks for taking time to read and help me out. I've search the forum but haven't found a good answer.

It would also help me when and if I decide to upgrade the Gaucho to 18V as well.

We have two 700's and both of them developed the same problem. I did not find a bteaker by the foot switch. Mine had one inside the fwd/rev switch. It is a spade type breaker, Just pull out the switch, remove the breaker then insert a short wire (12/10 gage) with a male spade attached to each end and use thar as a replacement for the breaker. The switch is a b**** to get out. There are two screws that you remove from the underside of the fwd/rev switch and then the secure tabs can be released fron the top. After all that don't forget to replace the breaker up top by the battery.
