I recently purchased a 2002 Sportsman 500 Freedom series that was not charging the battery. I re-soldered the wires to the stator and it fixed that but the machine seems to have no power from what i remember these to have. I cleaned and rebuilt the carb with all new parts and adjusted it according to the manual, checked the timing and the cam. All seems to be fine. I examined the clutches and in neutral they appear to be working fine. It will go ok but wont spin the tires from a dead stop in high on dirt. If you rev it in neutral wide open it pops almost like its a rev limiter but im not sure how these machines function in that aspect. Any help would be appreciated.
