Remove the starter and replace it engaging the teeth sequence so they are locked together, you cant just put on on it without interlocking the teeth, take it loose then reposition it with teeth engaged then tightern bolts and solenoid you are good to go.

Disconnect the battery and then carefully remove the starter. Take the unit to a local auto parts dealer for a bench test. Starters have two separate functions, one spins the shaft to crank the engine, the other is called a bendix, which pushes the starter gear out to engage the flywheel, and then after the engine engages, retracts it (except in the case of starter/generator combo units which recharge your battery and power your vehicle's electricals while the engine is running) Always best to get a bench test rather than depending on apparent symptoms.

Why is my bike backfiring?


a back fire on a bike is usually the cause of timing being out or damaged carburettor ( too much petrol going through ) in the case of the carb you can adust the air screw to see if that helps ( small screw in the side of the carb ) screw it right in and then bring it out 1 and a half turns ,this will get you very close to the right mixture. in the case of timing being out you will need to take the fly wheel off and adjust the stator plate ( turn it to the timing marks ) as a rule its usually . back fire through the exhaust is timing,back fire through the carb is fuel mixture. if you rev it when it starts and it pops through the exhaust the problem is within the fly wheel . if it pops through the carb the problem is with mixture.

Have a 200cc chinese quad. I think its an air cooled Lifan engine. I can hear starter motor spinning but dosnt turn engine. any advise would be apreciated


Try taking a look at the starter and flywheel while attempting to start the engine. Does the small gear at the end of the starter move forward and engage the flywheel when you try to start the engine? Could it be stuck? The small gear must move forward to engage the flywheel. Keep your fingers away from the moving parts.

Why electric start does not work and pull start works


1. Need a new battery
2. starter solenoid is defective
3. starter needs rebuilding...

Does Solenoid click when trying the electric starter? CAREFULLY jump the two terminals on the solenoid (SPARKS WILL FLY).. IF the engine turns over or starts, THE SOLENOID IS BAD. just replace it.
If it clicks when you are trying to start it electrically, use a multimeter (voltmeter) to see if you are getting 12v to the starter connection while you are trying to electrically start it. (+) lead on starter bolt and (-) to a motor mount bolt. If you get 12v+, starter needs rebuilding!

2004 arctic cat 500 4x4 starter turns doesnt engage starts with pull cord


The starter has to throw it's gear out using centrifugal force. The speed of the starter has to be enough to overcome the spring inside. It is either a little seized and needs to be rebuilt and greased up, or the battery isn't powered up enough to get the right speed to engage properly. In that case clean the battery posts and clamps well, then charge or replace the battery. To know if the battery is bad wait till it is charged... if it still doesn't engage try again with booster cables from your car etc. and see if it suddenly works fine.

Have I got correctly still understand that you are behind the wheel locked and the atv is not enough to turn while driving?

I have an ATV Polaris Sportsman 800 that will not go into 4WD while in reverse with the over ride button pressed in. It did not work one day then worked the next and now seems to be out for good. 4 WD...


The over RIDE button is not used for shifting.
it is used to over RIDE the REV LIMETER while in reverse ( for applications such as plowing)
shifting into 4wd while moving is safe on some vehicles, but can cause catastrophic damage on others.
be ABSOLUTELY sure your vehicle is designed for SHIFT ON THE FLY .
If you aren sure, then come to a complete stop befor shifting.
