2002 Polaris TXI only stays started if you hold start down for 3-4 Seconds
I have made progress in determining why my ski does not start. If you hold down the start button while starting for an additional 3-4 seconds the ski stays started. If you release when the ski fires up the ski dies. Is this a function of the start stop switch?
Idles normal after that and the rpm is good, I think 1160.

Was the battery ever hooked up backwards?
Do you have the original start solenoid, black color with a metal backing plate? If yes, replace with the upgraded solenoid.
I suspect the protection diode inside the start solenoid has failed.
Without a working diode inside, when you release the start button the solenoid coil can generate a reverse EMF pulse that confuses the electronics, and shuts the engine down.
Older 4010858 starter solenoids with a Black body and metal backing plate tend to fail
Replace with the newer Brown body solenoid 4011043
Even better, replace with the Black all plastic (no metal backing plate) version
