I bought a 2001 Honda foreman 450 es on Sunday rode fine shifted fine turned on. Got it home and won’t do anything. When you go to start it just clicks,so google the problem bought a new starter figure I was good to go. New starter is on and still won’t crank. Messed around with the carb/fuel line/air box and got it fire up for like 20 mins. We turned it off because ES wouldn't do Any thing, doesn’t make Sound won’t shift out of N. We had to manually shift it into N just to fire it up. Any help for a noobie would be great.

*I did buy a new carb to put on*

i was thinking battery also.
save time and money, buy a manual shift, and never...EVER trust the guy when he says it ran fine when I parked
when i got my 2000es in 08, the salesman said, the old guy that drove it only checked his cow's now an then. it did have low hours, an miles. i want to say, 1200 miles. the salesman left out the part, where the old mans wife only drove the car to church on Sundays.. the old lady must ave been using the atv i got, when the front bumper got pushed in some. i did contribute more later on..
if it ran fine, why sell it., an never... EVER trust the guy, when he says it ran fine, when he parked it..
that is a bad sign. LOL's plus!!
