2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 Starter Engaging

I changed the starter and starter solenoid. battery died so I bought a new battery.  Hooked up positive post first then I went to hook up negative wire and the atv tried to start. Key is not in the ignition and start switch is not being depressed. Anyone ever have this issue?  I was going to check solenoid with meter, but haven't had a chance yet.

I appreciate the reply, but it's really hard to cross a red and black wire when there is only one post to connect the positive cable to.   I've checked the solenoid and I'm getting 12v to both post with no key installed, so I will try a new solenoid. Thanks for the reply.

I had purchased a new relay and that's when this problem happens. I checked it with my meter and had 12v to both post with no key installed. Bought another relay same problem.  Went to polaris and got one from them and it works like it's supposed to. Not sure how to close out a post. Thank you for your response.

      What's the best kids atv out there? I've seen everything from the ones released by the major manufacturers to all those knock offs. Kawasaki has a KFX 50 that is pretty nice for under $1800...

      Anyone purchase or check out Rockymtnatv lately? Well I was just browsing over there and they have a pretty cool section called Ten Dollars Or Less. Some interesting things to check out if you are in the market.

      Wiring shows White and Brown to solenoid blades. Then a black wire from starter circuit relay to solenoid. I am confused,  where is that black wire supposed to connect?
      Thanks for any help

      Hi all,
      Looking for some help on a starter/bendix issue. Can Am outlander 450 2017. While cranking to start, the starter spins and engages into the ring gear. After a few seconds the bendix retracts while still spinning and there is no damaged teeth on the drive pulley.
