    I'm with going-for on this one. Hook up jumper cables and see what happens. If it starts, then you better look at a new battery or check out the charging system.

    Just WAGging here, but your battery might not be be putting out enough amperage. Might be, when you let up on the starter button, the motor is still spinning but the battery has enough "oomph" to give you a spark. If you can bump-start the Polaris, I might be right.

    Electrical issues are always difficult to diagnose. Good luck!

    no but the trigger that's part of the stator will, there famous for it, and no you cant just buy the trigger you have to buy the whole stator, we keep at least one or two on hand at our shop, yea it's that common. same stator we use on the Artic Cat, and yes they have the same problem.
