Hello. I recently purchased a polaris predator 500. The day after bringing it home I went to start it and it wouldn’t start and would barely crank. The next day it no longer cranked at all. It will bump start/pop start, but will not crank at all from the electric start. Installed a new battery, new starter, new spark plug, and new starter relay. Nothing changed. Lights are on, it has power, just hums and starter clicks. Any help is appreciated.

Starter motors hum and relays click. Check the battery - put a meter across the terminals and check the voltage when trying to start - should not drop below 10.5 when the starter motor is engaged - may be you got a bad battery. When you got the battery, was it fully charged? They need to be charged at 1.25 amps for 4 to 10 hours before use and recharged a minimum of every 30 days.
