    96 Polaris SL900 Not starting

    the other day i tried to fire up my ski and it gave me a clicking sound. i bought a control box off here and replaced the ignition coil, electric box and the relay switch. all the plugs were reconnected exactly how they were taken out.... tried to start it and i got the same clicking sound... last time i checked my battery had a charge. i was just wondering if there is maybe a starter on this thing that is bad.... i dunno im not a mechanic. if anyone can help or has any suggestions on what to do i would greatly appreciate it. thanks!

    Welcome the the hulk!

    Take the battery and fully charge it,Don't trust the gauge on the sled.Make sure all the battery connections are clean.Then try and use jumper cables with a good car battery,If you have the same click, check the black ground cable from battery to the engine for good connection,if still nothing,I would take the starter out and test it on the bench. Most of the time it's a low battery are a old battery.The batterys that a heck of a pounding which can destory the batteries plates inside.Let us know what you find out.

    Pull the spark plugs out and make sure the engine rotates by hand.

    You can also try to use a jumper battery and attach the ground to the engine and the power lead to the battery and see if it works.

    Oh and WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!
