kicking it over has NOTHING to do with the starter being bad !. sounds like your starter needs to be replaced.

your not suppose to hook it directly to the battery !, its suppose to be hooked to the starter solenoind :).

was this starter recently replaced ?, if so ?, then you got the wrong starter !, most starters for trx300's are CCW ( counter clockwise ).

it do the same thing with the solenoind on it
lets back up here, do you have the starter hooked up like my pic i posted ^^ ?, was the starter just replaced ? if its all good ?, then i would almost bet your one-way bearing is bad, but !!!, this does not explain why the starter keeps spinning when you push the starter button ?, unless !!!!, the starter solenoid is bad, and hanging ?!. if it is ?, then this is the very same thing as you connecting your starter straight to the battery...WHICH YOU CAN NOT DO !..LOL.

then chances are your having issues with your one-way starter bearing.
