New to the site and very impressed so far.
My problem is this - we swamped the quad, then it would not restart. Brought it home, started troubleshooting. Changed oil a few times till clear of water traces. Still no start. Heard snapping noise under seat. Was the solenoid making loud snap. Replaced this, but still no start. Took off starter and grounded it, then tried the key - starter is spinning out, no problem. Re-connected, but still no start. Any ideas??!

You may have hydro locked the cylinder, remove the plug and crank it over see if this helps.

Just my 2 cents
