this is too wierd

I have a 95 magnum 425 2x4. I finally got it running thanks to tt425. Here is the wierd part. The battery will crank the quad all day but the only way it will fire and start is to have a battery charger on it for about a minute then remove the charger and she will fire right up. I have tried several different batteries all with the same result. My pull start is hashed so I cannot use it.. Any ideas??? Thanks, Dave

get a multi meter and test the battery, should read at least 12.2 volts , should read 13.5 or more when running and reved up a little

bad battery, bad connections, bad ground. Could be a combination of all or just one

when your recoil pull start goes out, go to this website. Mopeds, Scooters, Heeters Performance Center, Powersports Parts, Accessories, Apparel & Service Available Mine busted all up in pieces and they had everything i needed very cheap prices. I almost bought the same parts on ebay for $99 got it at heeters for $40
