Believe it or not, the polaris tech at my dealer tells me that this is "a 570 thing." When the engine stops in the compression stroke near top dead center, the battery doesn't have enough amps to muscle through the compression.
I went and bought a new sealed battery (better CCA, too) for my new wheeler with only 200 something miles on it, and when I got to the shop the old battery tested fine and when I expressed my sincere disbelief at the entire thing, the tech pulled out that gemstone for me.
I told him, and anyone at Polaris that cares to listen that hearing that about my $10K sportsman was not very comforting.
Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, and it happened to me again while out in the woods, a long walk to the nearest road. I bumped it a half dozen times until it finally fired and boy was I worried. Has been fine since, though. I rode it the past couple weekends with no issue.
