I have a 99 sportsman 500. Put a new battery in and when I use electric start it turns slow and doesn't want to fire. User recoil and fires right up. When I crank with the electric start the starter solenoid next to the battery starts to smoke a little and gets hot. Can someone recommend some solutions or threads that would help? Thanks.

Remove and replace the solenoid. It appears to have a serious short in it.

May also be weak battery or bad connection, clean all the terminals and retest..
