I have a 2008 Sportsman 500 HO that I can't get started. It started for a short while, the day I found the problem, about long enough to get it out of the garage. I went to move it again and just turned over but didn't start. After doing a quick look over I found gas in the oil. So I changed the oil, oil filter, spark plug, and since it needed it the air filter too. Still no start. I have been using the fuel on/switch on bottom of tank so I don't get gas in the oil again. I do have spark when the engine is being turned over. I also have fuel going to the carb and does come out the bowl of the carb. That is what I found out so far. I have reached point that I'm comfortable ripping into it to find the problem and am considering taking it to a mechanic unless somebody has had the same problem or has a good idea on what it might be. I will take any advice or suggestions. Thanks
