2006 Sportsman 700 Wiring

I have a 2006 700 twin. I was riding it today. Stopped at a stop sign. Took off and got 1/4 mile up the road and it lost all power and the ATV just rolled to a stop. Cluster went blank like it had no power to it. Aftermarket light bar still works, winch still works and it rolls over when you jump the selonoid. What could it be? I'm kinda irritated about it. The trails were ridiculously bumpy could I have rattled something loose or?!?!

Check the handlebar kill switch on the left side of the bar - check the connectors where they plug in - unplug them, clean them and plug them back in - also check the 6 amp fuse in the fuse block - it blows and you lose the speedo and ignition

I have the front plastics off it and the storage rack but I have yet to find any fuse panel. I will definately check the plug in for the kill switch though. It just died when I was riding like someone turned the key off.

I bet you have a 2006 Sportsman 700 CARB machine... There is no fuse panel and it has that weird screwed up ignition system!!
Does it look like the pictures below with the different controller modules and crap in it?
IIRC there was a recall on some of those old 700's because of that screwed up electrical/ignition system catching fire.

Those things look familiar. I wish I could load the picture I have on my phone here. But I couldnt find any fuses, or anything like that that could have went bad or blown.

My uncle owned it and I bet he never took it in for any recalls. He didnt do any maintenance on it. How do I tell if anything was done or if it was recalled?? And if so would they still fix it if it hasnt been done yet?

Take the VIN to a dealer and they can tell you anything that's been done. Polaris also has a recall site that you can see if it affects your machine. A good dealer might be able to help you out if they think you may become a regular customer in the future.

Will do. Thanks. Another dumb question. Since it is electrical. Would I be better off taking it to a dealer to have them fix it? I know I can save some $$$ by taking it to them with the plastics already off. I'm just not an electrician and if the electrical system I have is goofy id rather not fuck it up.

Yep, I'd take it to them with the plastics off and let them hook it up to their Digital Wrench diagnostics software to see if they can quickly determine what the issue may be. There should be only a minimal charge for the diagnostics. Ask them about any recall info while they are diagnosing it and see what it might cost to fix before turning them loose on it.
