when backing up a 2000 sportsman 500 ATV after recently purchasing it, the ATV backfired, stalled and wont restart. Does anyone know what could cause this?

backfires

Yes, there was plenty of gas and the ignition key and switch were on, it turns over but wont start. I have owned Honda ATVs and dirt bikes and never had issues like this Polaris. Can these Polaris sportsman ATV's be reliable?
