SOURCE: My 2007 polaris 450 sportsman used to start with the pull start 2nd pull,now it starts for a couple seconds and stalls ,does this three or 4 x then starts and runs fine,by the way it won't start with
Could be time to replace battery, this is most likely the culprit. These fourwheelers are very picky when it comes to low power. Your starter is also most likely just fine, the clicking you hear is the solenoid on the starter, so your battery has some juice, but not enough amps to turn over the starter. Also If the fourwheeler has sat for a long time then you may just need to charge the battery. The 2007 is most likely fuel inject which uses even more fuel when running and it also has its own computer kind of like a PCM in a car or truck. These all need a good supply of power and the stator which is like an alternator usually needs the help of a fully charged battery to keep everything running properly. Also note, once you get a new battery or charge it in some cases the ATV should run smoother.

If engine does not turn over you need to see if the starter is getting power and if it is any good. Also look for an inline safety switch for the starter that may be stuck in the open position and not allowing the electricity to enter the starter motor.

SOURCE: 2011 Polaris Sportsman 550 EFI, power steering quit working..and the battery is draining overnight. All fuses are good. I don't know if relays are good or not. Thank you for your time and help
Hi, it sounds like the electric steering pump has a fault and is draining the battery. Best get the steering pump checked or replaced.
