Moved topic to Polaris forum.

It sounds to me like you have a wire that is not connected somewhere. You should start tracing the wiring from the battery.

I have traced and have power all the way to ignition jumped the switch and power goes to the switch on the left handlebar lights kill switch etc. Quite diff to follow that way

If you got that far with power, maybe that switch is no good. Try just spraying water around that area to see if you get the results you had before.

No problem brother. We can help you along. There are a lot of members here that have Polaris quads etc as well as members that have electrical experience.  

But first go to the right side drop down menu and click on start a new topic so it stays current and has its own topic. 

Post your problem and I’m sure you will get this squared away.

Either on the positive battery terminal itself or the side of the solenoid that the battery terminal goes to, there will be a red wire (standard sized wire vs big battery cable size). That wire will lead to a fuse. I suspect that fuse is popped. To the original poster, could be the same for you. Just jumping to the ignition switch doesn’t guarantee that you provided power to the start push button. Also, could be a safety switch as in won’t start in gear without the brake handle squeezed kinda thing. Start with locating and checking the main fuse.

I had this EXACT problem with a trailboss. After going crazy and replacing the ignition switch, I found the Run/Off red switch on the left side of the handlebar to be dirty. After cleaninig.. Never happened again... Thought I would share

      Looking for advice on what to try next I bought this quad and it’s has spark and fuel but won’t stay running only fires when I hold the starter button in even when spraying gas into the carb it still dies right away oil was milky white so I was thinking it maybe went under water 150 psi compression so I might be wrong but not a head gasket I am stuck Cause it should stay running with the straight gas through the carb so what should I try

      So, I got this 07' Polaris Outlaw 90 in the shop to rebuild top end and transmission. Replaced all bearings and gears in the transmission. Replaced cylinder and piston with brand new parts. Put the engine back on the frame and fired it up. Started great, but had a taping sound in the lower crank case. pulled the flywheel cover off and found the flywheel was wobbling and hitting the stator. I then replaced the stator and flywheel with brand new parts. Timing is all set on the timing marks now, but when I turn it over it kicks back when it fires and ends up stripping the starter idler gear. I've replaced the starter gear once already and now have to replace it again. Is it possible that the timing marks on the flywheel are off or maybe this flywheel is not for this exact model? Thinking of advancing the timing to try it, but don't want to keep going through idler gears.

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling
