Hello, I just picked up a 99 Sportsman 500. The guy had just put a new speedo in it and everything was working. After the first ride the speedo died. It starts up great with the recoil but with the ignition on and the switch on run there is no speed and the electric start doesn't work. I reseated all the connection points and I appear to have power where I should.

Any insight on where to start would be great.

Thx

So I figured it out. It was a corroded pin in the left handlebar switch plug. Cleaned it up,works great! FYI.

Glad to hear you got it figured out.... and inexpensively too! Throwing parts at a machine can get expensive!!
