Sent quad to shop. I don't know what part of "I need it to run reliably" they didn't understand. The oil, oil filter, spark and air filter were changed. Got it home, barely started to get it off the truck. It was running so I took it for a run of several miles. Next morning it started, iffy and that was the last time. On the invoice it says Note, it runs but no power, didn't look into cams? clutches? dono. What would they mean by no power? When I ran it down the road it was responsive and had lots of zip, more than I need or w ant. It's not a highway hauler. Any ideas? My feeling is it's electrical. I rely heavily on my quad as I inherited a lung disease and my quad enables me to get out and about.

It sounds like it is trying to start, then within a couple of seconds I get the raspberry sound. I've had the charger on the battery on trickle, then 12 volts. Nada. I don't dwell on the starter. I'm wondering about the solenoid but don't have the tools to check it. No point in taking it back to the high priced shop, besides I have to find someone to take it in and bring it home. My quad isn't a toy, it's my little work horse as I try to maintain an acreage. INRBigness, there are some challenging trails next to my property and I have about a hundred acres of wilderness yet 5 min from town. We're only 250km e of Wpg.

Well start by taking a jumper cable and go from the starter lug right to possitive terminal on the battery or any good battery and see if it starts. If it does then use common sense and a meter and work back towards the battery. If it doesnt then its the starter must have a bad set of brushes in it.

To check the solonoid take the same jumper and then go to the solonoid. see what happens.

Thanks I'll give it a try, after I find out where the starter is. I fix horse riding saddles, not vehicles.

2006 Sportsman 500 HO starter won't turn

A few weeks ago my daughter very slowly rolled over my 2006 Sportsman 500 HO (she did not get hurt, it was a very slow roll). I did not witness but shortly thereafter the throttle went wide open and smoked like a banshee. My brother hit the kill switch and stopped the engine. We ended up towing it out of the woods with my 850 Sportsman.

Fast forward, we can start the engine with the pull starter but the electric starter will not turn over. The solenoid is good and I am getting power to the lug on the starter, but there is no sound or power dip when the ignition switch is turned to start. I suspect I need to remove starter. In looking at it it would appear I need to remove the PVT and inner cover. Is this correct?

I was hoping to not have to do that. Any tips?
