Have you ever adjusted the valves? As the engine brakes in the valve stems get longer and the clearance between the cam shaft and the valve decreases. One of the symptoms of valves needing adjusting is hard starting. I would be willing to put money on it that your valves are out of adjustment. Since you did not mention that the dealer recommended that, I am very surprised that they didn't mention that. Personally I'd never go back to that crappy dealer again. Do a search online, possibly facebook marketplace and find a good local guy, even someone working out of their garage to take your atv to. I have a KQ 450 that I bought used and as soon as I brought it home first thing I did was check the valves. Sure enough, they were way out of adjustment. As soon as they were adjusted quad started up much easier and ran better.

Have you done a compression test? You could be low on compression. That would make it hard to start. Also have you tried a shot of starting fluid and see if it cranks right up? That would let you know if it's a fuel problem
