SOURCE: Yamaha snowmobile starting issue
check for power to starter w/ testlight when you press start button.if none check for power at starter side of starter solenoid when pressing start button.if none take large screwdriver and wedge between both solenoid posts creating contact w/ key swich on. motor should crank.if it does -starter is good. chek small wire coming out of solenoid for power w/ test light when pressing start,if none check start button contacts or power coming from key switch or wiring from start button to solenoid. if power is at small wire when pressing button but no crank-solenoid is bad.

normally starter relay located behind the left or right hand side cover,if the electrical system is dead then there is a fairly good chance battery is no good

Check fuses. Check voltage. Could be a burned, or just broken fuse. Could be a dead battery. Could be as simple as poor battery connections. If not, perhaps the following will help:
A starter can be tested in a very simple way, by applying 12vdc to the power input, and grounding the case. If it spins, then it's on to step 2, checking connections.
Starters are much too simple to be more complicated than that, but the electrical system can be. Check the circuit between the relay and the starter. Is is a direct wire with no breaks? If so, check the voltage at the power output and input of the relay. If it is good, check the power input and grounding of the starter.
Most new bikes have a clutch switch, and it may interrupt the 12vdc to the starter, without affecting the relay. Same thing goes for the nuetral switch.
Try starting in nuetral, with the clutch pulled. Check the relay for conections that you may have taken off, and not replaced. Same thing for the starter.

Testimonial: "accurate and outstanding advice, new starter bad, many thanks"
Charge battery to full, start in neutral, still clicks? Bad ground, or bad connection. Jump starter solenoid with screwdriver,etc. if motor turns over the relay is bad. Chaz Moto DC

if you can find a rebuild kit its not so hard, new brushes, bearings, resurfacing the armature and away you go, good luck
