    I have the same problem...was a solution found for this problem? If we use the pull start, it will eventually power up normally. I'm certain we dont have a battery problem, but the key turn isnt powering up for starting...nothing happens.

I have had a similar experience with my 800 EFI after running a day in and out of very high water conditions. After much troubleshooting, the water got into my harnesses and the first issue was is led to my fuel pump being shorted out. After replacing the fuel pump I still had some unknown issues that would not allow it to start. I removed 100% of the remaining body plastic to get to every electrical harness/ connection. I systematically uncoupled them one by one, dried them out with air blasts and then slathered each in copious amounts of dielectric grease to add another level of water barrier at these critical connections. I did this to all of my fuses as well. It worked perfectly from that day on and started right up. Do not under-estimate the damage water can cause, especially in the more advanced machines that has computers, fuels pumps, injectors etc.. Once it get in these supposedly water tight connectors, it requires maintenance to remove it from the main harness couplings and preventative dielectric grease to keep it from happening again.

2010 sportsman 500 hd runs then dies turns over won't start


My opinion, it's running rich and letting it idle for 5 minutes doesn't help. Whether it's carbed or EFI, when the machine is cold, it needs more fuel. As engine temperature increases, it doesn't need as much fuel, and the carbon that started building up on the plug is burned back off. When a machine isn't ran for very long, carbon deposits continue to build on the plug. The carb itself may need to be rejetted/adjusted, it it's running rich,

Why does the engine load up at higher rpms?


you might have a dirty carb.check the big jet in there as it might have a blockage.sounds like you have enough gas going through the small jet to start the quad and for slow speed but when you want to give it good power, it starts to bog down.do the carb thing first
