polaris 400 xplorer 4x4

I bought this four wheeler today for two hundred. Its in good shape but I have just on problem. For some reason the spark plug will only fire once when hitting the start button. Does anyone know why it might do this? Turns over good and getts fuel but not enough spark. I just wanted to say thanks in advance.

It would likely be the magneto/coil. I would check all the wire connections first, including the ignition switch to make sure it isn't grounding the system out. What year is it?

These Polaris 4 wheelers have a safety switch in the throttle. Make sure the throttle cable isn't sticking. If it's Ok, check the switch. Good luck, roger
