Why won't it turn over?

There is a starter solenoid under the hood on in side the right side fender . close to the firewall on the right side. the small wire is the trigger wire, see if you get power when you turn the key to start on that wire.

Quad wont start

check starter solenoid
should have power at the little yellow ( guessing color ) when the button is pushed
should have ground at the black wire ( if applicable )
yes, solenoid is bad
no, backtrack to the push button
does it have a key switch by chance ???

sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

My kymco zing only kick starts. I have a question- is it normal for the rear light to come on when you turn the key before starting? it seems to me to be a design fault or the fault of the previous owner!...

Hi, I'd check that one of the brakelight switches isn't stuck on, as if it's the park light it should put the front one on as well, some bikes have the headlight/taillight hardwired so come on with ign. on. The starter should have a fuse, check it, if ok, follow the main wires from the starter motor to the solinoid & check power's getting through with a test light (an old globe with a length of wire will do), the solinoid should have one large power cable to it from batt. with full time power, another the same going to starter that get's power when start button's pressed & a smaller one which should get power when start button's pressed (activates solinoid). if it is getting power to the starter when button's pressed, starter probably needs new brushes or just a good clean out, hope this helps.
