Don't get a chance to post much. My '07 500 H.O. has a weird short in it. At first I thought it had a bad battery, but the battery is fine. Put it back in after a full charge and it fired right up, oh well, maybe it was just low and a full charge took care of it. Rode it around a little bit and pulled back in the yard and left it idling. after a couple of minutes the lights blinked and the engine started missing and went dead before I could get to it. Tried to restart it and sometimes it started but then would go dead and sometimes wouldn't make a sound. Did notice that it would get power to the switch if I moved the handlebars back and forth. Unfortunately I can't seem to get it to keep running. I've had a lot of street and dirt bikes over the years but this is my first ATV so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Jim

You mentioned "Did notice that it would get power to the switch if I moved the handlebars back and forth. "

I would be checking contacts on AWD switch and tracking back wires from switch through pod and below for breaks.

Hey, thanks. I'll start taking things apart since I at least have a starting point. Of course the way my luck goes, I'll probably still have a hell of a time tracking it down. This could be a 12 pack job!
