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.

SOURCE: My polaris sportsman 570 will not start when I put the key and I have power to the lights on the dash but the engine will not turn over. I did turn it off in gear accidently.

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.

2015 Polaris Sportsman ETX. I have to turn the key over repeatedly for it to start & as soon as I let off the key, it shuts off again. If I hold the key in the "crank" position the engine will stay on


I would say based on information that the ignition switch is faulty,worn, or broken and would need to be replaced. Just to double check , it should remain in the acc position and not go back, doubt it would be financially or otherwise attempt to do a repair.

My 2007 450 sportsman won.t start but she backfires


Remove the seat, and take the cover off the air filter container. Place your hand over the end to aid in fuel flow to the carburator. You might not be getting enough fuel which is causing it to backfire and not start completely.
Attempt to start the ATV once you get fuel flowing you should be all set. Clean that filter as well.

How do I replace a fuel filter on a 2006 Polaris Sportsman 450


The part you should have got would be #2520464 from polaris, this is a quick disconnect filter that is located not in the tank, but under the frame just behind and above the radiator. if you take your front box off you'll be able to get a good look at it. pretty easy to install. As for the tank, polaris doesn't offer service parts for thier pumps, which have a screen on them
