2002 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO all stock. Was running ok. Up and down the street. Backfired a little. Took it out to play. While warming it up I forgot to turn on the fuel and it ran down and died. Turned on the fuel and fired it up. No real issues. Upon attempting to go uphill and then through light mud problems began. Became real sluggish and very little power. Started acting like it was starving for fuel. Then it died. During this time my battery was drained. Tried to pull start with no luck until moving/pushing the quad. Back at the shop I checked the fuel filter, fuel lines, carb bowl and all seemed fine. I loosened the fuel cap and it started right up. Let it run for a bit, then was throttling it. Up to 3/4 throttle all seemed fine. Above 3/4 multiple backfires and choking. Also backfired when letting throttle loose. Bike is idling rough. Closed choke and it immediately died. Would not start with choke closed. Took a few tries once choke was open again. Charging issue: Bike is draining battery during use. Battery recharges with battery charger very quickly. I would appreciate any and all help and advice. Thank you in advance for your time.
