Have a 87 TRX FourTrax that will not start. Thought it was the solenoid because it was clicking when I tried to start. Replaced the solenoid but it still will not start, only click. Any insight on this issue. Thanks in advance to any help.
Try jump starting with a car or truck DO NOT Have the car or truck running.The quad starter was designed to see 12.6 volts max, and by using internal resistance, it pulls a safe current. But if the voltage is high (like having a truck alternator putting out 15.2 volts, it will draw too much current. Youll even hear it...itll spin much faster than normal. You can also cook the ATV electronics that way.If you are still getting clicks after jumping it check with a test light or volt meter to see if you have voltage to the starter.
Agreed^^^ you may possibly be looking at a starter? if you find in your testing that you still can't make any head way pull the starter and carry it to your local starter/alternator rebuild shop and have it tested.
