Just acquired this wheeler and i'm seeing if I can get it running again. Its a 2006 sportsman 700 EFI with 300 hours on it, and its been sitting in a garage for around a year. So far when cranking with a fresh battery over 13 volts all i get is a very slow turn that has no chance of starting and you can hear the compression. I have removed the starter and tested it direct with battery, it spun fast as hell..although it seemed to have resistance when turning the gear by hand. i also took it apart and good bit of "black sand" fell out . next i removed the bendex, and the spring seems to be working just not the strongest.i could turn the cylinders on it but they had a little resistance. all of the teeth on the flywheel, starter, and bendex seem to be perfectly fine. After reinstalling the starter and bendex it seemed to turn over a tiny bit faster than previously but no chance of starting. It doesnt have a pull start rope right now so I'm not sure if it turns the same. Next i will remove the spark plugs and try cranking it to see if it turns differently. So what do ya'll think is the culprit?
