Question about ATVs
The only logical reason for the wire to become very hot is that there is a direct short to Ground. Either the new solenoid/starter is shorted to Ground internally or the attachment point of the source positive wire is not properly isolated from the Grounding of the starter case.

Testimonial: "thanks for your input, however the original solenoid had this problem, so I purchased a "new" solenoid & starter with the described heat response. I have tested the solenoids & starters and find new evidence of a short. I am discouraged that I cannot find a "clear" electrical schematic, this would save me from removing the dash cover to access the relay modules. Any other suggestions?"
