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. Sounded good but the ES won’t do Anything now, 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.

Thank you guys for chiming in, I have the battery out and I'm going to bring it to advance auto after work to see if it's weak. The carb I bought is not OEM but I figured I'd try it first and if it works well enough until I have the factory carb rebuilt I'll be happy with it as a temp solution. I just want the freaking thing running/shifting normal so I have the peace of mind I didn't just throw away $1000. We bought it for our daughters to ride with my wife and I and the guy who sold it to me said it was all good and it did start and ride fine at his house but the hour ride home thing is dead and now my problem to deal with. Thanks again for any input, I appreciate it.
Got it fixed, changed all the fuses and put the new carb in ands running awesomeeee.
Prior owner definitely went swimming with this hog
