Let's determine whether the amperage is getting to the starter.

Turn headlights on, and watch the headlight while attempting to start.
When the "click" happens hold the switch in the start position.
If the headlight dims, the starter is bad because the amperage is reaching the starter and its not spinning.
If the headlight doesn't dim, there is no amperage reaching the windings of the starter, likely it is bad starter cable ends, but it too could be the starter with a burnt wire inside between the solenoid and the windings, to test this you would need to power the motor only portion of the starter with a jumper.(crossing the terminals of the solenoid) Warning, sparks will fly when you do this, but if it is burnt, there will be no sparks.

It sounds like you have a bad starter motor.

SOURCE: My 2007 polaris 450 sportsman used to start with the pull start 2nd pull,now it starts for a couple seconds and stalls ,does this three or 4 x then starts and runs fine,by the way it won't start with

Could be time to replace battery, this is most likely the culprit. These fourwheelers are very picky when it comes to low power. Your starter is also most likely just fine, the clicking you hear is the solenoid on the starter, so your battery has some juice, but not enough amps to turn over the starter. Also If the fourwheeler has sat for a long time then you may just need to charge the battery. The 2007 is most likely fuel inject which uses even more fuel when running and it also has its own computer kind of like a PCM in a car or truck. These all need a good supply of power and the stator which is like an alternator usually needs the help of a fully charged battery to keep everything running properly. Also note, once you get a new battery or charge it in some cases the ATV should run smoother.

04 330 magnum will not stay running without choke pulled out halfway to full choke from brand new in 2004


First make sure the carb.mounting flange is tight. being loose or cracked will allow air in leaning out the air fuel mixture. Next remove the low jet in the carb. its most likely plugged. try carb cleaner and blow it out with compressed air. Last resort,take the paper off of a twist tie and run it through the jet. If all else fails,buy a new one.thier only around 4 dollars.

I have a 2004 Polaris Magnum 330cc 4x4. It will only start up if i rock it side to side, but when i stop shaking the four wheeler it dies


You need to inspect all gas lines for obstructions including the gas tank , and especially the carb. I can bet dollars to doughnuts that it's a fuel problem something is blocking the fuel and by rocking it it's allowing the fuel to go through. hope this helps , let me know how you make out .

fyi, something to watch out for on those is bad crank seals. will allow a lot of air in and cause the engine self destruct. before the cdi try simpler things like coil and making sure all the wiring is right. good pickup coil.
