I have a 2004 polaris sportsman 500 and a 2006 polaris sportsman 500, I am having problems with the 06 sportsman, every time i try and start it it just clicks, i am thinking it is the starter i tried the old solenoid trick and it was sparking but it didn't start, so im thinking it is the solenoid, i have no clue what it is, i have put ALOT of money into these bad boy's, it seems everytime i go out and ride we got a problem, i just put a new starter on both of them, and i do not bury them so i don't understand why im always having problems, can anybody help me???? thank you :D

You said you "tried the solenoid trick". You jumped the battery side to the small wire or to the starter wire? You said it sparked...ok...did the engine turn over?

Clicking without the engine turning over is normally a low or bad battery.

i just ordered a new starter, and nope it didn't last weekend i was at the mondex in scottsmoore, fl and it was fine but my sister made the mistake of turning it off right after she went through a mud hole so i am guessing it got wet inside there
