No Power To Starter
Tried the Repair and Maintenance forum and got no help.
I just picked up a 2006 Sportsman 700 Twin EFI and it won't start.
While we were riding this weekend the seller accidentally left the key and the lights on when he parked it. We recharged the battery, tried to start it, and nothing. The instrument panel comes on and I hear a pump turning on for a couple seconds. I assume that's the fuel pump pressurizing. My problem is I don't even get a click from the starter.
The starter terminals look good as does the battery.
Any ideas what might be the problem or how to troubleshoot? I'm pretty savvy with vehicles but I've never worked on an ATV before other than changing an air filter or spark plug.
Any help would be great!
