Hey hows it going, I own a 2008 Honda TRX 450r and I'm starting to have starter problems. I check for current in the battery and the starter when starting the quad and I have full 12 volts. The problem I have with it is when I try to start it, I can hear the starter spinning but I have to shake it and play with the starter button to make the starter in gauge. I was told by a friend that the brush inside of the starter might need to be changed. I wanted to ask I anyone here have had that problem, thanks

Welcome to the forums. If the starter is spinning, but the engine isn't turning, then your one-way starter clutch is probably bad.

agreed ^^^^^^^..if the one way bearing is bad..and starter is turning..but the motor isn't..this means your one way bearing is on it's last leg..replace it..oh.you may want to purchase a new side cover gasket for that side...just in case you tear the old one up when you pull the side case.
