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.

Yes this is normal for the 2011 Sportsman 500. The 500 does not have a one way bearing in the clutch acting like an engine brake as do the previous years. Polaris removed this option for the 500 sportsman in 2009. If you were to own a 550 it would not free wheel down a hill.

I need a wiring diagram as my son connected the battery wrong negitive to positive need to see what all is wrong


There is a fuse link at the Positive battery terminal wire. It will blow to protect the circuits if the battery is hooked up backwards.
It is a smaller gauge section in the wire that melts to save systems. any auto parts store has one
