location of Fuse box

Hi everyone. I'm gonna get the stupid questions out of the way 1st here. I just bought a 2001 Scrambler 400 and a 2001 Trailblazer 250. Both have the same problem. The starter won't turn. they run great pulling the rope. I checked each with a good battery. Both of them have a click coming from the solenoid. Does anyone know if there is a fuse box on these bikes or where the fuse for the starter would be? Tomorrow I'm going to put a screwdriver across the 2 big terminals on the solenoid to see if I can get these starters to turn. I assume that would let me know if it is the starter or something electrical. Am I headed in the right direction here?

yes, that's the first thing i would try - shorting out the solenoid to see if the starter spins. there are no fuse boxes on the machine, but if you goto bikebandit.com under oem parts and put in your bikes info, it will give you parts fiche with location of circuit breakers and fusible links.

if the starter does turn when you short out the solenoid, check the ignition wire from the solenoid to your ignition switch.

Double check for corrosion. My 03 had a similiar problem and just cleaning up the connections solved the problem
