Already mentioned the fuses are good. No service manual needed when I have you guys. Iím actually more mechanically inclined than this post makes me sound. I just feel like itís something really simple has happened and Iím overlooking it. I mean, new brakes, stood it up accidentally, now itís a dead system?

Did you test for power on both sides the fuses , sometimes the connection isn't good between the fuse holder and the fuse ------I wonder if the diode getting blown would cause your problem , it is inside the electrical connection box under the front fender

1st. you do need a service manual. so ya dont have to get people to do work for ya, when they could be helping someone else. besides ya might learn something. anyhoo; ,
ya say the bike was stood on end. how did it get back to ground. slow or dropped? just asking
shouldnt matter much anyway. my 2000es rolled over twice. i was still there the 1st time. the 2nd time, a tree stopped it. it landed straight up, still running. you got a loose, or dirty connection somewhere. what happen's when ya jump the solenoid? does the starter try to turn? do the light's work? it it a totally dead system?
lot's of variables.

clymers manual,service manual..
"what a good giff, the good lord gee us,not to see ourselves,as others see us"

Isnít this what forums are for? Iíve help many people on the can am forum without a manual because Iím more knowledgeable on those rigs.

It was brought to chest level and dropped. Not even a spark when I jump the solenoid. The lights work as they should and so does the dash lights. If I can just get the motor to turn over I feel confident I can take it from there.

The starter motor is not working, so diagnose that next. Put battery voltage to the positive terminal on the starter and make sure the negative ground cable is bolted down tight under the mounting bolt. If the starter does not run while jumpered directly, repair it or replace it with an OEM starter motor.

I appreciate where youíre coming from, but honestly youíre not getting anywhere by not using the diagnostics in the manual.

When you switch on, does the oil light come on momentarily and then go off?

It took us more than 40 days to gather enough info to call out your bad starter motor. While I understand that some folks are stuck with phones and can't read a service manual on them, I still feel like those folks should try to do as many things for themselves as is possible. Fact is, ya ain't gonna learn much unless ya DIY. Bottom line: Unless you are very experienced and have a fantastic memory, your 1st and best option for repair help and reference should be your copy of the factory service manual.

Service manuals are free here. An ATV is an expensive long term investment that requires periodic maintenance. There is no valid excuse for not owning and consulting a copy of the FSM at every opportunity. I am an old fart and I still must read them often.

Goober is right, we aren't here to guide lazy hands. We enjoy helping those who are stuck the most because we find opportunities to learn from those challenging experiences as well. Folks too lazy to read an FSM are very common nowadays and certainly are very uninteresting... there is nothing that any of us can learn from them. Naturally, given time we may all get burned out helping folks uninterested in helping themselves learn and do. So it is in your best interest both short & long term, to at least follow along, referring to your copy of the free FSM.

You could have been riding again 40 days ago.

To my dear friend Retro,

Iím sorry to have bothered you with the problem Iíve had at hand. I can assure you Iím not lazy though and you making that statement/assumption due to the fact that I donít have a service manual is very simple minded. I do my part in helping others with the issues I have knowledge of and as a result naturally assumed others to do the same in return. Iíll take the blame for that. But in return, you have reminded me that people are not as genuine as they were hopefully taught when they were younger. No hard feelings on my part. If you were broke down on the trail Iíd still stop and help you out. Who knows I might even be carrying a service manual with me! Lol

I brought this post back alive on 06/17/2019 so truly itís only taken us 3 days to get it figured out. Hopefully this evening Iíll test the starter and thatís it.

And since the fourtrax is not my only ATV. Click the image to open in full size.Iíve been riding most weekends, but I appreciate you being concerned with me being off the trails for the past 40 days. Click the image to open in full size.
