Sportsman 500 98 - not start, I have Spark, I have fuel
I have Polaris Sportsman 500 1998.
i have problem, the engine not want to start.
before 2 weeks, not matter how much i push on the starter button, the engine not turn on, and the starter works very good, with fast Rotations.
one of every 11 times of trying , the starter get the engine work (6-8 seconds for each try)
this is not current/Voltage in the electric system i checked this.
the strange thing, that, in one pull of the hand starter rope, the engine starts.
and when the engine is on, it works very well, Quiet, good RPM, Working hard like a new.
Now.. after 2 weeks, the hand starter rope, was broken, and not work any more, and now.
yesterday, after 5-6 times of trying to start the engine. it was work finaly,
i was did a 30 minutes trip, The ATV run fast and strong, then i goes back home, i turn off the engine after 10 minutes, i try the turn the engine on, over 20-25 times of trying to start on the engine, and without sucess.
now i need to buy new starter.
** some extra information:
- I have new 3 week old spark plug.
- i have some strange phenomenon, if i push the fuel gaz, in the same time that i push the starter button, the starter works very hard, it is like the engine is stuck. and if i Releases the fuel gaz.
