You might have a bad connector unit. The clue is still the 'moving of the wiring harness kills the engine'.

SOURCE: 1999 sportsman 500 will not run in 4 wheel drive

Hello all, to overcome this problem, I pulled off the 6 pin connector to the speedometer, shorted the brown and brown/white wires together and taped it up. Did not reconnect the plug. This bypasses the speedometer (it did not work to begin with) and allows the AWD to engage.

SOURCE: Service manual for a 2006 500 Polaris Sportsman HO

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.

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,
