Welcome to Quadcrazy. From your description it sounds like you heard a noise and then it shut off?  Is the bike in neutral ? It’s possable that the engine is seized up.  I would take the spark plug out and try to pull start it to see if the engine turns over.  Then drain the oil if there is any oil in the engine and see if any metal pieces are present.  It’s also possable that something else is locking up the engine causing it not to spin like a blown clutch bearing, maybe something came apart in the stator coil area or transmission.

Yes I took out the spark plug and still won’t turn over I took apart the pull string housing assembly and was looking to see if something might have came apart in there but nothing      I can  turn back and forth about a quarter turn each way the part thats used by the pull string to start the engine but no more then that I also sprayed blaster down in motor where spark plug was just to see if maybe it would free up after sitting but didn’t work.    HELP PLEASE

Welcome back Allen. It honestly sounds like the engine has seized. I would take the head off exposing the piston and cylinder to see if there is any damage inside the cylinder walls. And maybe go further into this by taking the cylinder off completely. 

But prior to any of that make sure your not missing something else like the starter bearing or in the stator coil area   

Did you drain the oil? 

I have the same bike and it’s reliable and tough. But if there was no or low oil well that’s that! 

Hopfully you will find out and keep us posted. I’ve been a little busy since I opened up my own company but will try to check in from time to time. 

Goos luck.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Hi All
      So far the parts I have to give this ATV some love are:
      Oil and air filter
      Spark Plug
      Diff oil
      Engine oil
      Crush washer for the diff
      New plug and O ring for the engine drain
      New o rings for the oil pump housing
      Anything else I should get?
       
      Cheers

      I have a 1999 Sportsman  500, it was running fine, than started to lose power in the winter, I adjusted the idle screw and away I went, than a few weeks ago it died, I have found that i am flooding the engine, compression was at 70PSI and due to the compression release mech. i assume i am good as it compared to the same PSI on a 2000 sportsman 500 i have. i cannot start the atv unless i go full throttle and it starts an runs for about 30 sec than dies, again it is flooded. i ordered a new carb off ebay as i could get one for around $40. put that in same issue, i have checked the timing, (good), valves out of adjustment i adjusted to .006 still same issue, i have found the exhaust lobe and rocker arm to have some wear, i have ordered new ones, but am looking for any other input in this area as well. would the exhaust cam and rocker arm cause the engine to flood? i have used a bore scope and the piston liner has good cross hatching still? any input would be great.
