Ok I'm absolutley stumped and I'm in need of some ideas or assistance. Im working on a fourwheeler for a buddy. It's a 2016 Honda Rancher 420. The problem is the bike will not start. When you hit the start button you can hear gears turning over on the back side of the engine. First thought (since he already replaced the starter) the one way starter clutch. I tore the bike down and got to the reduction gear and the starter clutch. The clutch free spins one way, then it locks the other way as it should. I took a flat head screw driver and wedged it to put pressure on the gear to see if it would slip, and it didn't! I doubled checked the reduction gear and the starter output shaft and everything looks great! Could it still be he starter clutch? Or could he have ordered the wrong starter? Maybe new starter is bad? I'm stumped!
