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

      So few months ago I acquired a 01 Explorer 4x4 (think its a 350 but not sure) 
      Anyway the owner said it started reving very high, shut the key off and still kept running 
      until finally he shut off fuel and it finally died. During the run away he said the exhaust got 
      red hot and has melted plastics to prove it. Said some thing flew out the tail pipe, I kinda figured
      it was the top of the piston. Anyway finally got around to looking at it (have a lot of other projects in the works)
      and checked the compression, Shows about 40 psi. Can hear air coming out the carb while rotating the motor over. 
      Gonna pull it apart eventually, don't hear any noises or binding in the stroke, You think the piston came apart? 
      any horror stories of these and is it worth my effort and money? Don't really have any money in it yet. Thoughts? Az

      I have a 2011 850 Sportsman.  Has been absolutely trouble free except for 1 thing. I am on my 4th. ignition switch. I don't know if it's that they are all chinese junk or what.  It gets to a point  when you turn the key and it will act like the battery is going bad. Cranks real slow or not at all. Put a new switch in and its fine. New one will last 1 1/2 - 2 years and its junk. I've had the Polaris brand and after market. As a matter of fact the original one lasted the lest amount of time.  Other than that it's been a perfect machine . No electrical problems. No battery problems. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issue.

      Well its finally happened, its time to replace the belt on my 2011 Polaris Sportsman 500 H.O.   Is there anything specific i need to know before getting into it? Is there one brand of belt i should get over another?   I'm still on my first Polaris and plan to keep it at least another 8 years.
