1999 Polaris Sportsman. I just replaced the starter and the plug about 4 months ago. I havent driven it much at all put just pulling a trailer around the yard and an occasional run up and down to wear the dog out. Anyways, the atv wont start now. When I it the starter, it will turn over for 1/2 a second then just make a winning noise like the starter is hitting put nothing is turning over?? Any thoughts on this. Im tempted to take it up to the stealership but its 15yrs old and I dont want to put more money than its worth into it. Anything would be helpful. Pull start wont start engine either!

What the voltage on the battery? Sounds like its dead, given that the starter engages and tries to turn it over. It could be so dead that even pull starting isn't getting enough juice to the CDI to create spark. If you have a multimeter check out the voltage and let us know.
