Welcome to the forums...Free downloadable manuals in the Schematics/Manual help section on the Technical discussions board...Check the wires coming off the neutral switch for corrosion,breaks,bare wires,unplugged ,also check the bulb itself by unplugging the neutral light wires,and hooking them to a small 9v battery...

Welcome to the forums. Like Deep said, check the wire where it plugs into the neutral switch. It could be unplugged or sometimes it can have a bad connection. Also, check your fuses.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You can check the starter by jumping a screwdriver across both large terminals on the solenoid to see if it actually works...If it does,then I'd guess that you have a neutral switch,or wiring issue...Make certain the atv is in neutral before doing any of this..

The neutral light is supposed to be on before the electric start will work, but if it's just a blown bulb, it will still work, because the neutral light bulb is in a parallel circuit. Do what Deep suggested, above, and if the starter works, check your fuses.

Have you checked to see if the wire was unplugged from the neutral switch?

There's a starting solenoid under the seat that the battery is attached to by a big battery cable,jump IT with the screwdriver to see if it will turn over,or start...Try this...
