Have you checked the main fuse by starter relay and try to wiggle the ignition switch a little.  Some times they act up.  

 Any dash lights, headlights ?

Ok well as long as you have dash lights. It’s something holding the start circuit out. Is the bike in neutral and start checking all the safeties as well as the starter circuit.  Put a voltage tester on the battery and hit the start button.  If the voltage drops the starter may be jammed or bad.  You can also put a tester on the starter wire and see if the starter get voltage when you press the start button.  Do you hear any clicks coming from the starter relay under the seat ? Or any place else on the bike when you press the starter?

Check the kill switch, left handlebar, red switch,  that would prevent the fuel pump from pressurizing.

Check ignition fuse (IGN on the fuse block) it could have popped and you would still have dash and headlights, but the pump won't pressurize.

On these machines, the start circuit would only prevent the starter from engaging, the fuel pump will still pressurize. Arctic cat machines allow you to start the machine in gear only if the brake is engaged. There is a relay called "start in gear" but I don't think this is his problem.  It is either the kill switch or something in the IGN circuit.

Since this is an EFI machine, battery condition is very important, battery may appear to be OK, but only a load test could verify that.

Service manuals and schematics are available for free for Arctic Cats. That is a big help

      With this cold snap, I noticed yesterday that the battery on my grizzly was a little weak. even clicked a few times before I got it to start. I'm thinking of picking up a batter tender/ trickle charger so was wondering what people use to keep their ATV battery charged up. I was looking at these on amazon. They both have good reviews.

      I've bought a used 2007 Polaris Phoenix 200... it's in pretty good shape... but after it starts, warms up, a few minutes of my son riding around yard it will die... it refuses to start back until the next day, then same thing again... I've seen this is a problem but haven't found any real answers... my son is driving me crazy to get him back riding... any help is greatly appreciated...

      I know...I feel stupid for asking.  I find it impossible to use the thumb throttle with my thumb when I have the bars turned full right. I have to reach across the top and grab the throttle from the front with my fingers. It isn't very smooth and I can't help but think that there must be a technique, mod or adjustment for this. How do I get past this?

      So I have a Honda Fourtrax 300 year 1988. The ignition doesn’t start it with no sound. The headlights won’t turn on. It has a brand new charged battery, fuses are good, oil is good, gas is good, reverse is rusted, it shifts good, won’t jumpstart but when you try it will turn over, it will start if you jump the solenoid give it gas and spray starter fluid on the breather but it won’t stay on long but will stay on for the little time it does by itself. I don’t know what’s wrong and I need help!
