My son saved up his cash and we just bought yesterday a 2002 sportsman 500 ho. We drove it around for a few minutes at the guys place we bought it from and it seemed to be ok. So we bring it home and we proceed to go for a ride well after about 10 minutes it sputtered and died. It then won't start and I kill the battery, so out comes the charger and charge it for a bit then I can get it started and it'll run for 7 or 8 minutes and then the same thing. So I'm not too impressed. I've drained the fuel and put some fresh super in, I've checked the fuel filter and it is clean, checked the spark plug and it is sparking, air filter is clean, not sure what to do now. I expected that I would have to replace bushings and such on an 11 year old quad but didn't expect i'd have to deal with this. Any help would be great. Oh and by the way I am new to quading and this forum.

Thanks

Deeker
