I checked the battery and noticed it to be a little low. After a full charge, same results.
All the fuses appear to not be blown also. The bike will crank but anly runs a few seconds and dies again.

Any ideas?
yep...just because your battery shows 12 volts ?..does not mean it has enough cranking amps to turn the starter ?.

not normal..battery is bad..if you do not replace the battery ?..you will be running the atv off the stator..over time ..and no telling when ??!!..you will over work your stator..and burn it out..this won't be good at all.

Click the image to open in full size. this part of my starter is worn down and one of the copper strips appear to be burned and almost gone, will a rebuilt kit help anything? The brushes are definitely need replacing

Welcome to da forums... No,a rebuild kit will not help a badly worn/burnt armature..Since you did not list the year,and model of yer atv>>You could find a decent used starter on feeBay for pretty chea,errr cost efficient,or buy a new one from one of the dealers on there who are much chea,errr more frugally priced than the stealerships pricing,and offer a warranty with their starters,or from one of the many online oem parts sellers which are usually far chea,errr more cost effective than the stealerships are......

Also I would like to add. . . When you clean the terminals on the battery go buy a can of battery cleaner and terminal spray too. . . just to show you how much battery voltage passes across dirt and grime take the neg. on you meter connect to the batt. neg. the touch the pos. meter cable to pos. battery. . we all know you get a reading now touch the plastic part of the battery inbetween the terminals and slowly work your way to the neg. terminal but do not touch it!! someof you will have readings of voltage and some won't just an interesting fact about battery drain not only being caused by a component but a dirty battery

Hey guys I'm new so please excuse if you've covered this already.
I just bought a new 2012 rancher 420 but have had a bit of intermittent trouble. It seems a couple of times the rancher starts fine but when I shift out of neutral and give it some gas it stalls. This has only happen to me twice and both times I did not let the quad warm up. Additionally, when I try to restart it, I get the clicking noise and it doesnt start. On both times, I turned the key off and then back on then hit starter button and it fired right up...Any clues what might be happening here? I can follow the instructions in the beginning of this thread but since the rancher is new I wanted to see if maybe I'm just not letting it warm up enough. Appreciate any insight, thank you.

My 2012 Rancher had the same thing happen. Whether it was warm or not, sometimes it would just stall when I first put it in gear from neutral but turning it off then on would resolve it. Eventually it started to stall as I was riding and wouldn't start unless I messed with the battery terminals. It turned out to be the connection on the battery terminals were coming loose. I think I just removed the connections, and put them back and and tightened them up really well. They didn't even appear to be loose, but it must of been just enough to not make contact. It might be a place to start with your issue...

As for not letting it warm up, I don't really let mine "warm up". I usually start it, put my gloves, helmet and start the Go Pro so it might sit for a minute or so but not much more. Since it is FI, I figured it would be similar to a car where you can basically start it up and go.
