Buy yourself a factory parts & service manual,
at a dealer that sells those atv's & use the trouble
charts contained
You should have some type of owners manual on
basic checks,such as clutch adjustment ,etc

SOURCE: 2004 arctic cat 500 4x4 starter turns doesnt engage starts with pull cord

The starter has to throw it's gear out using centrifugal force. The speed of the starter has to be enough to overcome the spring inside. It is either a little seized and needs to be rebuilt and greased up, or the battery isn't powered up enough to get the right speed to engage properly. In that case clean the battery posts and clamps well, then charge or replace the battery. To know if the battery is bad wait till it is charged... if it still doesn't engage try again with booster cables from your car etc. and see if it suddenly works fine.

This issue could be much worse than you think. I would take it to a shop. If you have the skills remove the motor and get ready for a long day. You will have to split the motor apart. To me it sounds like the bevel gear. Hope this helps and if you need more help I will do what I can. Feel free to ask.

Unless you have a few special tools...flywheel remover, case splitters, crank installer, clutch tool, factory service manual.etc.. TAKE it to a professional!!

1. Never jump start an ATV, Motorcycle, UTV..etc from a automobile! The amperage is TOO high, you can damage a lot of expensive electrical components!! ..very quickly!
You cannot home trouble shoot without a new battery or fully charged battery with good solid clean connections!!
2. Have the battery tested or simply buy a GOOD new one!
3. Does the starter spin at all? Is there a clicking noise when you push the start button? No - solenoid is bad(?) . you can check this by jumping the two large connectors on the solenoid... A good screwdriver works well...(CAREFUL - SPARKS WILL FLY!) If the starter works while jumping, the solenoid is bad - just replace it (disconnect battery while replacing).
4. If the start spins while "jumping" and nothing happens the starter may need rebuilding if the new battery/fully charged battery/jumping solenoid does not expose/solve the problem.
Do this and repost.

2011 350 arctic cat EFE will not fire...the starter turns over ok.....but it will kinda cough a couple times like it is going to fire but wont

The coughing implies that it's a fuel problem. It sorta wants to run but is not getting any fuel. Remove the air filter and see if it will start and run for a bit with a squirt of starter fluid. If it does, it's a dirty carb or something fuel related.

I have a 05 arctic cat 400 atv. My problem is that it's has constant fire to the coil, with the key off and I can't figure out why.

sounds like the switch may be shorted, or a wire(s) have shorted to one another.... Find the plastic connector for the switch and unplug it... it should not fire.. if it does.. maybe someone has hot wired it??? ... BE CAREFUL!!

2006 arctic cat wont start

If you've got decent compression, spark and fuel and it wont run - what about about air? Clean / new air filter installed? All 4 are needed to run.

I have a Yamaha Bayou 230cc And it wont start.

Check your spark plug to see if it is fouled out see if it is dirty with carbon deposits white discolored or tan looking also check to see if the plugs are wet with gas or oil if everything looks good and you don't smell a high content of gas the next thing you could do is compression check and or check intake valves

Where is the spark plug located

Turn off the fuel tap the spark plug should be on the motor has a thick wire going to it, remove the plug and move the wire away from the hole to avoid a fire then crank engine over to push all the fuel out of the cyl, then fit a new plug .connect wire and see if it starts then turn fuel back on.

My 2007 Arctic Cat 250 2x4 barely starts and dies when you open the throtle any at all. No previous problems.

It sounds like it could be either a stuck choke, or a dirty carb. If you can see the choke moving freely you should try cleaning the carb jet and bowl. If you can try some carb cleaner first without removing the carb.

If you get it running, ensure you have fresh gasoline. I always store my engines with Seafoam to clean the carbs and keep the gas from going bad during storage.
