Some four wheelers require a battery to run correctly. sounds like you need a new one.

You have a faulty switch, or it has corrosion in it, moving the switch through it's full travel rapidly for a while to clean the inner contacts may cure the problem, or try disconnecting the switch.

when you rebuilt it did you find what killed it? lots of times crank seals go bad causing an air leak and they run lean and ruin the motor. could be happening still.

The starter engages and starts the motor fine when the motor is cold. however if you ride and try to restart the starter just spins and you can only start using the kick stater.

My four wheeler gets spark and gas to the carb but wont start what else could it be?


Carb could be dirty, float stuck or choke stuck. Pull plugs, crank engine and see if you are getting raw gas in the cylinder(s). If you don't get gas to the cylinders, you won't start. You also could have a flooded carburetor.

Leipai four wheeler won't start try's to start but


You might consider how long it has been sitting. How long has the battery been off a charger? Batteries need to cycle...sitting for months of non-use will drain enough charge out of them that they don't have enough cranking power..sometimes they will never regain a charge and need to be replaced....a Jump should work here. It is possible the Carburetor is gummed up? Assuming Carb model not fuel injected...Take off the air filter and spray some carb cleaner in the intake to see it if will turn over. If fuel injected model, you may add some fuel injector cleaner to gas tank (read the label on proper use)...You might have to flush the fuel line and add new fuel if it has been sitting for a year or more.

It keeps flashing volts.


Your Charging system is not working. You may need to replace the alternator. The only reason it runs when you are hooked to a charger is your battery is not holding a charge and the alternator is not producing the electricity needed to fire the spark plugs. When you hook up to charger, you now have the voltage necessary to fire the spark plugs.
