starting quad bike


Recommended Posts

How old is the quad and battery?

Solenoid could be worn, or starter motor brushes. I’ve had both of these on different motorbikes.

solenoid was about £15 and 10 mins to swap over, brushes were similar cost but about 30-45 mins to swap over.

Try clamping a jump lead from the starter body straight back to the negative battery terminal. 
My van wouldn’t start, just clicking. Changed battery and starter, no better. Even bridging the terminals on the solenoid wouldn’t do anything. Turns out it was a dodgy earth strap.
