Why would the muffler springs be hot?
What do you mean by "wine over"?

How old is your battery?? If its 3years old or older it might be time to change it. I was a common problem with the V1000's. Try jump starting the sled,, see what happens. I've seen batteries that indicate 100% charged but have a bad cell so it doesn't charge when your riding your sled.
You should hear the 2 beeps when you turn the key on,

Try checking the battery connections especially the ground. Also check the other end of the ground cable to make sure the connection is clean and tight. Hot muffler spring, the only thing I can think is itís trying to find a ground path through somewhere itís not supposed to. If this doesnít work maybe have the battery load tested if you can.

Does this sled have relays like newer SkiDoos? If so they might be bad.

You likely have a bad ground between engine and chassis and/or the battery. The engine is using the exhaust system as the ground path for the starter.

In most electric start systems, the battery is grounded to the engine and the engine is grounded to the chassis. The starter solenoid is usually activated by energizing the starter relay from the key switch. The relay must be grounded in some fashion so the internal coil will draw the solenoid in and complete the circuit to the starter. The fact that it will not do this with the key switch tells me that the engine may not be grounded to the solenoid. Or, that the solenoid is not getting current from the key switch.
