I have a 2000 Sportsman 500 that wont start. I put a new battery and repaired the pull start recoil spring. When i hit the start button all I hear is a click and when I pull the cord it wont start. I was wondering what I could try to avoid taking it to Polaris and having it fixed.

sounds like the starter solenoid or the starter itself is gone, or theres a short in the circuit somewhere, do you have spark? do you have compression? do you have fuel? the recoil should start it regardless of electric start issues, I mean, thats what its for :p let me know how it goes.

That click should be the solenoid. If you can't turn it over with the recoil rope either, I'd bet that the starter bendix is locked up on the flywheel.
