    Hello Guys - I friend just gave me a 1996 Scrambler 400 4X4 that won't start. He said it was running a month ago, but died while his son was riding it. When we press the start button, the starter solenoid just makes a single "click" sound. We cleaned (wire brushed) all the battery/selenoid...

    My 2005 predator 500 was barely starting and if It did would run rough. After looking into it I realized it was a bad fuel pump and disconnected the lines and ran a line from the tank straight to the carb to get me by for now. The quad ran great for hours with no issues. Is there any need to...
