I just bought a 2005 Sportsman 500HO and am having some issues. There is 800 miles & 135 hours on the machine, when I brought it home after it ran for 15 minutes or so and got warm it would shutoff. Wait a few seconds and it would start back up and run for a few seconds or maybe a minute... rinse & repeat. I ended up pulling the carb, found that the “p” hose to the carb was cable ties & almost pinched shut. Cleaned the carb, unpinched the hose & reassembled. Machine ran great..., for that evening. Next day can’t keep it running without being on the throttle. Took carb apart again, saw nothing out of the ordinary, starts up, idles great runs great.., tonight can’t get it to run without being on the throttle again!!! I shut off the fuel switch last night thinking the carb was filling up with gas. Anyone run into this before? Appreciate all ideas
