First check and make sure the starter is not loose, their are 2 bolts that tighten it to the engine. If they are tighten then you may have grind the teeth off.

2009 Ranger 500efi. I changed starter and starter Bendix. It's like something not releasing after it starts, I shut it of and it still turns over. Sometimes after it starts it's got a odd noise

Turn over is the process that an engine makes when it is trying to start. If you twist the key and get nothing then it wont turn over. Google shimming a starter and watch the vids.

The tgb blade 400 atv wont start it traced the problem to the starter motor and found large amount of oil inside starter it was serviced a few weeks ago.

most starters are not sealed as such but collect oil from the back of the flywheel ( torque converter) where the crank shaft rear seal has failed
oil in a starter interferes with the brush contact and causes starter operation problems

My boyfriends 2002 bigdog husky won'tstart he said the starter grinding but won't engage maybe dead battery maybe starter we don't know please help

If it were the battery, the starter wouldn't be making any grinding noise at all. It could be the starter, starter drive, starter solenoid or the teeth ground down on 3 spots on the flywheel.

What can i do to start my yamaha warrior because it wont start and when i try the battery smokes

Sounds like you burnt out the starter Take it to Auto Zone they should be able to see if the Starters any Good a starter should not spin over more than 10 seconds copper windings are that good in jump Starter just about every starter is from Japan, as for the no starting sounds like the Carb has issues does your fuel smell like varnish

Why is the flywheel making a grinding noise when trying to start my polaris outlaw 500?

The starter drive on the starter motor is defective. The teeth on the flywheel could be chewed up too. If you just installed a new starter, you may have to add or subtract clearance spacer metal tabs so that the starter drive engages properly with the flywheel.
