Sometimes when we turn the key on, there seems to be no power going to the switch.

If I bounce around on the 4 wheeler and rock it, the electrical connection seems to come back.

I don't know much about 4 wheelers. I don't have a PDF manual on it or anything.

I'm looking to see if this is something common that long-time members here can point me to a thread.

The 2000 TRX300 is a great quad. Buy OEM parts only and you鈥檒l get and keep it running.

i would get some contact cleaner, permatex dielectric grease and some plumbers flux brushes. Use a brass brush to clean the battery, solenoid and starter cable connections.

As you are inspecting each electrical connection, remove it 鈥 careful don鈥檛 break the ears off the connectors.clean and apply a thin film of permatex on the connector and backshell. Youwill have to remove the fuel tank and front fender to inspect the ignition switch connectors

start with battery connectors in back. Mice love to chew stuff back there
