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

Testimonial: "this will be checked, we're scratching our heads on this thanks"
you probly need a new heat sensor, its located on the bottom right of your rad, i had the same problem with my 700 the fan only worked when it was already over heating, i cut the wires flush at the sensor drilled a hole above the key switch and mounted a toggle switch, no more over heating,

Usually a simple process. Remove the large oblong shaped cover on the left side of the engine.inside is the primary (small pulley) and secondary(large pulley) drive with the drive belt running in between them.Force the large pulley apart(best done by hand) allowing the belt to drop down to its center and then using the resulting slack to pull the belt over the primary pulley and thus removing it.Rotating the pulley(s) by hand may aid in this process.(think about how a bicycle chain is put back into place after it has fallen off.Same basic principle) Putting the new belt in place Reopen the large drive again(spreading it apart) and place the belt onto it first then over the primary.(again turning it by hand much like the bicycle idea).When all is said and done check the seal on the cover and make sure it is in place(if damaged replace it.This is very important to help keep contaminants and water out of this area.)and replace the cover tightening the bolts from the middle outward towards the ends.This will also help seal it up properly.

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.
