Got a 125cc Taotao atv for the kids.put new battery in new chain ,fuses all good checked all wires .no probs .cant figure why it wont even try and to sound or cranking .as it is electric star

Your starter is probably out, or not properly connected. Locate the starter and there should be two wires going to it, they both should be marked with + and - make sure red goes to positive and black to -
If you want to test your starter before buying a new one, take it off of the fourwheeler, and hook it up to the battery. (note: this is not recommended by the manufacturer may void warranty. If you do do it.... Hold on to that starter.)

How to fix 1982 xs 650 yamaha starter?

it could be your button i know this bike very well
does not matter if it is the xs 1 or the xs2 the same set up applies
there are a few components you need to test first
starter button
starter solenoid
main fuse

i will also tell you some major mods i did to one
when i was dragging the xs650 at super twins
which included a rebore to a 1056cc and having 7 gears
and a turbo

to eliminate the button
with the battery still connected
get a spanner or a screwdriver and not doing it to long
arc out the two polls on your starter solenoid
if you do not know what that looks like follow the main red wire
that goes from your battery
the first stopping point will be the starter solenoid
one poll clamps the main wire from the battery
second poll clamps the main wire to your starter motor
arc out the two polls with a spanner or a screwdriver
to test the motor
if your motor turns the engine then it is not your starter
the problem lies in either your

starter solenoid, (this is a sealed unit replace unit with a new one)
the wiring, (test main wire from your ignition to your switch
also test wire from your switch to your starter solenoid also clean all your wiring connectors)
your starter button, (strip and clean)
main fuse, (replace with a new one)

if the motor does not turn
then you will need to remove the starter motor
before you take the starter motor apart
test it with a multimeter
set on omes test each wire on the body of the starter motor starter
to check if the windings inside are earthing out on the body
if there is a reading on the multi meter
then your windings are earthing out
if there are no reading it may just need a clean up and new brushes fitted
and reassemble your ride


if you play or really want to play there are a few major mods you can do that have been tried and tested

parts needed
slab billet alloy 13in x 8in x 1.5in (for stroker kit)
or a pre brought stroker kit from halco tuning or wisco
get 2 mercedes benz 2.3 pistons ( for rebore)
2 barrel liners
find a good engineer and rebore your barrels and fit new sleeves
fitted with your 2.3 pistons

by fitting the stroker kit you will lose the standard top engine mount
or have more made as you by now should know a good engineer

remove kick starter reduction gears
find a good engineer and have 2 more gears made up
and fit

tried and tested turbo fitting
a mk 1 land rover turbo is small
and can be fitted under the carburettors
with a heat shield fitted between the carbs and the turbo

these are all mods i have done to the xs650
i built and raced i got to 180 mph over the 1/4 mile strip
with a xs650 hardtail chop that looked like a standard engine

have fun

Vauxhall vectra starter motor

You have a defective started solenoid on starter, the large battery contacts are eroded from arching and at times they don't make a connection to power up the starter motor and so the starter solenoid will just clicks This problem is common to all Nippon Denso designed type starters used in ALL modern cars and lite trucks.

Hi , i have a 2001 vw bettle that wont start ,i ve had the car 7 months and got the starter repalaced 3 times now as they telling me thats what the problem is (same garge all 3 times)but still happins 2...

3 starters in 7 months????? sounds like your getting "riped off!"
find a new garge,,,,if the battery is good and spins the starter over well then my gess is they just "cleaned the starter off" and called it a new one?? the main causes for starter faults is,,,bad battery's,,, not charging the battery up,,,,loose battery leads,,,bad engine earths to car body,,, very tight engine's? or holding the key over trying to start a car with a flat battery and the starter is only just grunting the motor over!
this causes a lot of heat in the starter motor,, and it burns out!
if it happens again fit a new starter with more power like a heavy duty one? but go to a new garge to get the work dont,, and if you can,,,
watch them fit it! but do tell them why you wont to see this starter fitted
