The sparkplug wire may be broken or not making contact with the coil that goes around the end of the spark plug.

1997 Polaris rmk 700 has no spark. Kill switch is in run position and key is on. Sled ran fine last year. I get a little tail light when I pull starter rope

try bypassing the kill switch and the ignition switch. Often the switches fail before the other components. the ignition can usually be bypasses by simply unplugging it from the harness. You may have to loop the wires to bypass the kill switch.

I have a 2000 polaris 800 rmk that i just bought and am not sure

With both of your questions the parts book is a recomendation for a specific condition. If you have 410's now and the spark plug looks like it's burning a nice caramel brown then you are fine. If the spark plug looks like it's burning white you need even bigger jets, if you are burning black then you need to go smaller. Always change them by one or two sizes and check again. As for the weights, the different weights change shift points of the clutch a heavier weight would cause the primary clutch to engage at a different rpm, I am in a stage of trial and error on which ones to use to make the clutch shift when and how I want it to.

I have an 2002 polaris Rmk with a igition switch that has 2 differant fuel settings (normal octane & preminum). The instructions that came with the tether switch does not mention this type of ignition...

Not sure if this helps...but my bro has a 01' RMK and it says to only use premium gas, I believe he may have tried to use regular or even mid grade and it bogged or started to. Never the less...I think that it is always best to run premium in high perfomance "toys" like smowmobiles and such...

2005 polaris 500 stalling

Yes, yes, and yes. Begin by installng new spark plugs. Also, a new air filter, and finally put carbeurator cleaner into your fuel tank, usually one ounce per gallon. You can purchase these items at any auto parts store. Bring the old plugs and air filter in so u are sure to get the correct ones. Finally, charge up your battery.
