Starter going, but not engaging the flywheel

I have the same problem....

Bendix on starter motor has gone or the flywheel has dropped or worn away some teeth

Take the starter motor out and look the teeth on the flywheel if you put the engine in a high gear you can push it forward or back to spin the flywheel around to inspect the teeth

If they are all looking square and right then the starter motor bendix needs to be replaced

Not a big job

Or get a re-conditioned starter motor

2009 Polaris outlaw starter engages but will not start


Is the engine locked up? check that first. Pull the starter and see if you can turn the flywheel, if not the engine is locked, pull the plugs and check for liquid lock, if the engine does turn the starter may be defective have it tested.

ATV will not start battery seems to be ok as lights are bright when turned on when key in on position.


What clicks is the solenoid for the starter. I pushes the starter gear into the flywheel, then the starter motor is supposed to spin the flywheel and it starts. If you hear the click, but nothing else happens, there is a good chance that it is the starter itself. Check the wires going to the starter and make sure that the red one is 12 volts. The black one should go to ground. If it has 12V on it, then it is the starter motor. If it DOESN'T have 12V, then the problem is that power is not getting to the motor.

Just replaced starter motor. Flywheel has all its teeth and so did the old starter motor. Fuses look good. The starter is rotating but the engine will not turn over and start. whirring noise.


check that the pinion of the starter is engaging the flywheel teeth
check that the over run clutch of the pinion is engaging and not over running when it is supposed to lock up to turn the flywheel

Why won't it start?


Check the starter to see if it is engaging the flywheel. There may be a flat spot on the flywheel so the starter cannot mesh with the teeth on the flywheel.

Starter spins but don't engage and won't start please HELP!!!! This is on a Polaris RZR 800s 2013


Check to see that the pinion gear of the starter is hooting out and engaging the flywheel.
And if it is working it is possible that you have missing tooth/teeth on your flywheel and the starter cannot turn over the engine because of that.

Behind starter fly wheel only moves back not forward wil not start not start starter seems like its working spins


Disconnect the battery and then carefully remove the starter. Take the unit to a local auto parts dealer for a bench test. Starters have two separate functions, one spins the shaft to crank the engine, the other is called a bendix, which pushes the starter gear out to engage the flywheel, and then after the engine engages, retracts it (except in the case of starter/generator combo units which recharge your battery and power your vehicle's electricals while the engine is running) Always best to get a bench test rather than depending on apparent symptoms.

Have a 200cc chinese quad. I think its an air cooled Lifan engine. I can hear starter motor spinning but dosnt turn engine. any advise would be apreciated


Try taking a look at the starter and flywheel while attempting to start the engine. Does the small gear at the end of the starter move forward and engage the flywheel when you try to start the engine? Could it be stuck? The small gear must move forward to engage the flywheel. Keep your fingers away from the moving parts.

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.

Yamaha 2005 raptor 80- clutch not engaging


ever put a clutch in? 100% sure you have the discs in right? It could very well be that it is adjusted too tight and won't release the clutch. Usually happens when you go from a bad bad over adjusted clutch to a nice new one.
