I have a 2018 Sportsman 570 SP Hunters Edition. I bought the quad new in August of 2018 and put around 20 miles on it with no issues. In early January of this year the quad was acting as if it had a bad battery even though it had been plugged into a tender. I checked the battery and it tested well so I took it to the dealership for warranty service. They had it for almost a month. They determined the quad had a bad EPS unit and swapped it out. Then they told me that the wire for the EPS needed to be updated as they could not program the new unit with the old wire. After the wire came in dealership told me they were still having troubles programming. After another week and a half they told me that they had consulted several times with engineers from Polaris and found a workaround and that the quad was ready for pickup. I contacted Polaris to inquire about the warranty being extended as it was in the shop for a month. They extended the 6 month factory warranty for an additional 3 months. I picked the quad up and the dealership said that the 2018 SP editions were known to have issue a with the EPS units but believed that they had fixed mine. I had it back for around a month and took it out a couple times for short rides and everything seemed fine. I parked it again for a few days and when I went to start it same issues (acting like the battery is no good and won’t start, when I jump start no power steering). Took it back to dealership and waiting to hear what the diagnosis is this time as well as their plan to fix this permanently. Just wondering if anyone else has had issues similar to mine or can give me some advice. Thanks in advance!

First time using this forum. Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues. But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction. They stated it ran, but only needed a battery. Well I do not believe that was all true.
Some pictures are attached. Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed. They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.
I purchased a battery to try this all out. Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box. But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.
1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on. Not sure if they work or not.
2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad. I have a new one on order.
3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part. Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.
4 - What is the 12v rectifier? square bodied part.
So when I hooked the battery up. Pushing the start button did nothing. Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire. I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out. With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.
I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on. SOmething about a kill switch.
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm working on my brothers' 2002 Suzuki Vinson 500 . It sat for a few years before I got into it. I'm concentrating on the carb - I replaced orings, needle, etc. and soaked jets, bowl and anything that I could get off the carb that the solution wouldn't eat. I also removed the tank and flushed it with hot water - it's clean. The gas cap innards rusted away and the tank had a lot of rust and water in it before I cleaned it. I replaced the gas cap and installed a new fuel valve because the screens were broken in the old one. The bike will run but spits and sputters and backfires. If you "open it up" it falls on its face and stalls - but starts right up. Here is a link to an exploded view of the carb: Ohio Honda Yamaha Motorcycle ATV Dealer - J & J Motors - Kawasaki Suzuki Scooter Utility vehicle, parts, accessories, apparel
Can anyone point me in the direction of the problem? It may still be a "clean carb parts issue" . My problem is that the parts list doesn't identify the parts to a degree that I understand. If you said" look at the pilot jet", I'm not sure which jet that would be....See what I mean? It'll run very good if I remove the air filter and cover the opening with my hand and part my fingers a little for the air to get in. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Jim
