New to the forum so forgive me if this is not posted correctly.

I have an 03 Sportsman 600 (choke not EFI) that was working fine and then all of sudden it stalled and will not start. The machine turns over but won't start. I changed the plugs and put a new fuel filter in to no avail. Since I changed the plugs, which is always fun, I pulled one of the wires off, put the old plug in and turn the key and am not getting spark at all.

I, by no means, am a mechanic but I have no problem trying things. Just need some direction as to what I need to look for.

Lastly, I tried to take my machine to a Polaris dealer and was advised "oh we can't do anything as you need to call on Monday and schedule an appointment and even then you're looking at a minimum of two weeks before you can even bring it in".

Any insight is greatly appreciated!!!

I have been told that Polaris had problems with the ignigtion systems on the older sportsmans. they used the ducati system and are known to fail.do a search and you will find the part # for the new replacement system.
