The 7 Most Popular Polaris Sportsman 570 Must-Have Accessories

These are the Polaris Sportsman 570 accessories I wish Polaris would add from the factory! Now that I’ve owned my 570 for two years, there are several aftermarket things you can add to make it more trail friendly, perform better in the mud, and work much better for things like hunting and hauling. For one, it needs some under belly skid protection if you’re going to ride the shit out of it like I do. If you haven’t seen my Sportsman 570 review video on YouTube, take a look and you’ll see what I mean. Below are not only a few accessories, but some essentials that I consider absolutely necessary that are not included from the factory. (I might be paranoid about a couple, but having no grease on the air filter seal, is a BIG NO NO in my book! Simple fix, super cheap, definitely will extend engine life if any debris is getting by with the stock setup!)

Update: After owning my Sportsman 570 for a year, these are the top 3 accessories I wish it came stock with!

  • These Rear A-Arm Guards (already tore a rear boot… these would have saved me!)
  • This No-Toil Grease (the stock air filter comes with no grease from the factory… makes me nervous about dust leaking by, shortening engine lifespan that a $10 tube of grease will fix)
  • The Front Bumper Brush Guard (the entire front is plastic, so to flip the bike up like in my videos, it’s hard to find anything to grab)
  • The Headlight Mod (not being able to turn on all three lights is insane!)

If you are a Polaris® Sportsman® 570 owner and are looking for ways to enhance your trail or mudding experience, there are several ways you can jazz up your 570. While the ATV is already a great stock bike, these are some aftermarket accessories that can make things all the more exciting out on the trail. Read on for the seven most popular Polaris® Sportsman® 570 accessories, including lock and ride add-ons, bolt ons, and major mods.

The Most Popular Polaris Sportsman 570 Accessories

Rear Brushguard

Every part of your Polaris® Sportsman® ATV needs care and protection. Now while you’re protecting the front with your bumper, don’t forget the back may be just as vulnerable on a rough track. The Polaris® Rear Brushguard is made specifically for this situation, but I also like this aftermarket one from Amazon. It fits perfectly with most Polaris® ATVs and has a gloss finish that can take whatever you throw at it – rocks, gravel, brush, sticks and even bumps into solid objects on your path. It’s made of a sturdy, formidable tubular steel, giving it an incredible durability. What’s more, it can also double up as a grab or lift handle and you can even use it as a place to hang your tools or rope while you’re off-roading.

This list has all the genuine Polaris accessories listed, but I have bought all my service stuff from Amazon with great success (and sometimes cheaper), so I would check this list for 570 accessories on Amazon.

Lock & Ride® Backrest

If you’re looking to do longer distances on your ATV, perhaps your back will thank you for a little respite. ATVs, after all, are in no way light vehicles to ride. Add a Sportsman® Backrest to your Polaris® Sportsman® 570 and enjoy long rides in sheer comfort. As the name suggests, you can simply lock it in place securely and ride immediately – it takes hardly a few seconds to install and requires no additional tools. Once you’re done for the day, it can be removed as easily as it was installed. The padded surface provides you with comfort and back support. But in some cases, the little dinky backrest is kind of a waste, and I prefer something with a full rear seat and storage like the Quadboss.

Lock & Ride® Rear Cargo Box

Bring as much gear as you like to your trailing expedition with the spacious Rear Cargo Box. The box also comes with the Lock & Ride® technology, so you can attach and detach it within seconds, without any external tools. The box comes with four Lock & Ride® expansion anchors which mount conveniently at the back of the ATV. A locking top lid makes the container secure and your gear completely safe, from thieves or weather. With 25 gallons of storage space, there’s enough room for riding gear, jackets, some snacks, etc. The insides are also compartmentalized so you can organize your gear easily. The exterior is made from durable high-density polyethylene plastic. It’s built in a way that hides scratches and dents from your trail ride.

Front Rack Extender

I can’t carry a chainsaw safely without a front rack extender. I mean you can strap it down pretty good, but the plastic is so slippery, that it’s hard to really lock it in there. One of these cheap rack extensions does the trick, and I think the smaller the better so it stays out of the way and doesn’t hinder opening of the hatch much.

You can even use your front rack for some storage but it’s not always secure. While you’re riding at higher speeds, the items you’ve kept on the rack may keep sliding. You could also install a genuine Polaris Front Rack Extender and make your front cargo rack more secure. In addition, you’ll be giving it more space to keep more items if required. The extender essentially forms a perimeter around the cargo rack to secure the items you have placed on it. It mounts easily to your front, providing a convenient grab handle. The durable steel tubing will last you for years and change the way your ATV carries cargo.

Lock & Ride® Low Windshield

If what you enjoy about your ATV is the feeling of openness and being in the wilderness, a windshield might probably get in the way. But if the weather is particularly rough or even if the trail has too much gravel, a windshield will protect you from possible hazards. If a full windshield is not your style, you can opt for the Lock & Ride® Low Windshield which is not only stylish but also does the job. It can be attached and removed within seconds, without any external tools. It is low enough that it doesn’t come in the way of your ideal ATV experience but it is also stylish. It makes your ATV look sporty and goes with an ATV of any color. The windshield is strong and durable and doesn’t hamper visibility. Besides, you can remove it whenever you like and enjoy the off-road experience the way you like it.

Polaris® HD 2,500 lb. Winch

If you’re in the middle of trailing through a sludgy route and your ATV gets stuck, the Polaris® Integrated Winch Kit is the way for you to get out. It can be installed within seconds by connecting directly to your Polaris® ATV wire harness. Once you use it, you can’t go back to riding without a Polaris® winch – it’s just that useful. It offers incredible support if you’re stranded in the rain and need to pull yourself out of the mud. What’s more, you can do it all by yourself! Its motor is completely sealed so you know it’s not weathered over time. It delivers every time you need to count on it. Built of aluminium housing, hardened steel gears and high strength steel cable, this winch kit is highly durable.

Trailerable Cover

After all that your ATV endures, when you tuck it in for the night you may want to offer it some protection from the weather, especially if you’re spending the night outdoors. Get a durable Polaris cover that is made especially for protecting your ATV. Made of strong, 250 denier polyester, it is the perfect covering to protect the ATV from dirt, dust and moisture. It has a custom fit for Polaris® Sportsman® ATVs, so it means it won’t flutter in the wind and let off-road elements through its gaps.

Final Thoughts

Finally, those were seven must-have accessories to make your trailing experience incredible. While the Polaris® Sportsman® 570 is a durable machine, every labour of love requires some maintenance and care. By enhancing your own experience and installing elements to protect yourself as well as your ATV, you are extending the life of your trusted ATV. What’s more, you can even go on longer expeditions now, with all that extra storage and protective gear. So customize your Polaris® Sportsman® 570 and experience the alternate terrains like never before.

I just bought a 2016 Polaris Sportsman 570 and was poking around to see what aftermarket accessories would be a nice addition to an already great stock bike. I don’t intend to add a lift kit or snorkel, but I would like to get into a good clutch kit and exhaust. Possibly even a fuel programmer or ECU re-flash, so the bike is all setup for when the stock tires wear out… I’ll add some beefier tires and wheels, and they’ll be a tad bit heavier than stock, so I need to make sure everything is setup to change the clutching to keep the same amount of torque as the stockers. Check out the badass accessories I found for the Sportsman 570 below…
