the usual problem with those is either the switch itself or the magnetic hubs at the front wheels
The factory service manual will tell you how to check both

I have a 2003 sportsman 500 ho thats doing the same thing. It starts fine everytime and idles fine but when you push the throttle it stalls and sounds like its loading up with fuel. Also its fouling the plugs when it does this b/c I can take them out and they are jet black (dry). I checked the spark and the spark appears to be good. So now I'm in the process of taking the carb apart to see if there is anything wrong with it and to clean it. If this doesn't fix it then I don't know. I really don't want to replace the coil b/c its like 150 bucks.

I have a 2004 700 carb that shut off while riding and then would start up 3-5 minutes later after many nights working on it Ifinally figured it out no help from any dealer. There are 2 circuit breakers under the front rack mine were very rusted, Replaced both never had the problem again. My situation was always only when the lights were on.
Hope this helps

I have a 2006 Sportstman 500HO ATV, EFI. Sometimes it will run 100% correct, other times it will start, idle fine but then when giving it throttle will will start to surge almost like it's hitting a rev limited. Sometimes it will backfire and stall. I already replaced fuel filter, flushed the fuel lines and gave it fresh gas and installed a new spark plug, but no good. I also checked the throttle switch and it's not making contact to stall it. I download the service manaul and tested each sensor and they tested fine which is probablt why I get no check engine light.
This ATV is mainly used to plow snow in my driveway, no salt. It's used around my property but very lightly. It's still as clean as it was when I bought it and it doesn't have but about 40 hours on it.
