Ok I thinking with the info you posted I have a small thing you can check on the wiring harness by the pull start (recoil) side of the engine there will be a small black box this is a relay (Bosch 30/40) go to any parts store and purchase one cost is from 4.00 to 10.00 and replace it what I think is happening is when you try to rev up the machine it's breaking contact of this relay I hope this helps do not get rid of this machine I'm sure it's a simple fix also check for fouled spark plug this can cause similar issues I hope this help

Wait, it just wont turn over, like the engine won't rotate?, that is either a broken crank, which not unusual for those 500's or you seized it, (welded the piston to the jugs). if this isn't what you mean, and it will turn over but not on its own power, then either your jets in the carbs are clogged, fuel may get to it, but not through it, or your rings are stuck closed and giving you low compression, check this by pulling it over slowly, you should feel each piston completing the revolution with a prominent glug glug. grab your primary clutch and rotate it back and forth, it should have a bit of play, but if it clanks and has alot of play, your crank is busted

SOURCE: I have a 1997 polaris
bad needle and seat in carburetors allowing gas leak by needle in carbs. Turn off gas when not in use and will help get by until you can replace them

I don't know where you live -- but up here in Alaska ( where it is very cold ) we have problems with water getting into the fuel of just about everything ( condensation from sitting )and the snowmobiles I have here I have to drain the carbs every now and then to drain out the little bit of water that finds its way to the carb bowl. ( just a thought ).
could also be a blocked/dirty jet in the carb, to cover all bases I would remove the bowl from the carburetor and spray down all parts with carb cleaner and then re-install and then try and run the sled. ( 9 times out of 10 the problems are carburetor related ).
