cooling fan on my 1999 sportsman 500 was seized and i didnt notice until it started smoking and overheated. Now all of the electrical on the handle bars is screwed up and nothing works, the lights on the pod dont come on and the speedometer wont light up, not even the head litghts..... only way to start it is with the pull cord and that is messed up to! I think i either need a new solenoid or it might be my ignition. We looked for fuses everywhere but cant seem to find any?!? we tested the circuit breaker and it seems to be fine...

If it got that hot it more then likely melted and shorted some wires. I would try and find a wiring diagram and checking continuity between wires to try and find your issue

they all should have an inline fuse check the hot wire going from stater switch and follow it down there should be one . if nothing is coming on thats most likely the problem
