either some lost connection along the way from the battery to your starter. check to see if there is power going to your starter. if there is then it is obviously your starter. just take it apart and see if the bushings are contacting. if they are then maybe need a new starter. dont go to any dealer or even after market for a new one they will rip you off. i found one on Ebay for as low as $49.99 after market wants $200 and dealer wants $300.00 and that is not including install. it is easy you can do it yourself for sure. i did. by the way i did not have to buy a new one it was just the bushings that needed to be cleaned and presto new again.ok so i have a 2002 polaris sportsman 500 HO and when i turn my key on it just clicks and it wont start unless i pull it over and tonight it recoiled and cut up my fingers and no im pissed.. so what might my problem be??
