polaris starter problem

Hello everyone,new member ,glad to be here,my question concerns my starter motor not cutting out when I turn off key or hit kill switch,it's a 2005 sportsman 500,I'm leaning towards wiring related to solenoid,or solenoid itself, but wondering if anyone else has had this issue

A Polaris tech on another forum says to blip the throttle after the starter spins so that it doesn't have to engage as long thus the starter last longer..probably not related to your problem but a good tip to remember dOwn the road

solenoid

have had same problem happen to me and only way to get starter motor to quit was to unhook battery. Sometimes you can give solenoid a bit of a tap to make quit but should be replaced before it comes on and burns out your starter.

thanks for tip,makes sense,if solenoid has a short it will engage or stay engaged,I'll replace solenoid and wire in a kill switch off battery if that doesn't solve problem,then I guess I'll be checking wiring
