I had the same thing happen to my wife's 2003 sportsman 700. It ended up being a failed thermostat. For a temp fix, i cut the wire from the thermostat(attached to bottom of radiator) and attached a toggle switch to the handlebar. Now she just flicks it on once we start. Eventually i will get another. there are many forums for replacements...namely vehicle ones that fit and are cheaper than the polaris ones. Also could try ebay. People are always parting out bikes with swapable items.
