Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
Most problems as you describe are due to the connections on the battery or starter being loose, corroded or dirty. Clean your connectors ( the big wire ones) at your battery, starter relay, starter, and ground (just follow the big wires from your battery terminals) and I'm sure you will find one or more connections along the way that are corroded or loose. Make sure the connections are tight, clean and free from corrosion and your timberwolf will crank over just fine.

Firstly, if you are not a mechanical person you should never buy a vehicle that does not run.
However, here are some basic tests.
1. Connect a good battery.
2. Remove the spark plug.
3. Turn the motor using the starter motor or kick starter.
4. check for spark by inserting a new plug into the plug cap. (make sure the plug is grounded).
If the motor turns freely and there is spark, chances are good that the motor will run. This does not mean that the motor is in a good condition. Only with the motor running will you be able to know for sure.
You will now have to source a carb and fit it to the 4 wheeler.
Fitting the carb is not too difficult. Check that the intake manifold is not perished or torn, and remember to use the airfilter.
Enjoy the ride !

I found solution. In my case problem was with connection next to the small electronic module next to the gear wheel. It is module directing red light in proper 'P', 'R', 'N' and 'D' letter.

Can it be turn on when the device is attached to the cradle with electric supply?
If so, I think the battey is aged and it cannot be charged to the operating voltage to turn the device on.
A change of battery is required.
I had such a case recently.
