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.

That intro title wasn’t clever or funny and certainly didn’t complement our efforts here
Is the battery new or in top form? The ES units need this.
Perform a clutch adjustment–sometimes this helps.
Download manual here and don’t junk the old starter
Let us know how it goes.
