that would be a gamble, I guess I've never had the need to see if one brands parts would swap out like that. I know this isn't much help, but hopefully you can come up with something that works for you.

I was just looking at pics between motors (Antifreeze Caps) and they looked like they could work on each other so maybe a Arctic Cat Cap will work on your Polaris.

Do you even know the point of a pressure cap? There is a reason it says 13 pounds or whatever on the cap. I wouldnt listen to your teacher if he doesnt even know that pretty basic piece of information.

Kessler by any chance do you know the pressure your cap was designed for. If so just go to an auto store and find the same cap but there are different sizes so make sure it is the same fit.

I just went out and took a cap off my ZR 580 and put it on the 800 RMK, same lbs, fit is perfect (13 lbs).

Also, on Polaris sleds, the expansion bottle holds the pressure cap, you could not substitute a non-pressurized duct tape version ;)

Make sure to check why it fell off, I believe there is a problem with EDGE Caps coming off due to the hole getting oblong. Just a thought.

Im not even kidding, he has one of the later el tigre's and there is a spray paint cap duct taped on there, the seat is patched on by a combination a duct tape and a bungie cord. The track is missing many lugs, the nose cone is all makeshift and rivets. I almost bought it off him for a couple hundred bucks ths year to beta around on.

Hmm. I forgot what kind of sled I had, but, we used one from a car.
