Honda Rancher 2013 solenoid issue?????

Recommended Posts

Replaced the starter about a year ago......took it apart and the armature was toast and in a million pieces.  replaced the solenoid as well.4 wheeler was running fine....then 10 minutes after last ride, won't start.  Solenoid just clicks and a little whine.  Battery is giving me 12+ volts, key on and key off.  My thought is solenoid.  I tapped the starter in case the brushes were dusty....no dice.  I noticed on both my old solenoid and the one I replaced it with.......both of the posts move, I can pull them up and push them down.  I know that can't be good.  Give me some ideas, guys.....I need the thing running.  Thanks.

My guess if it's making the whine sound - the solenoid is good and the starter is getting power

It's just not engaging with the flywheel - spray some wd40 or similar around the spring and gear

      got that 220 I'm 'servicing'..........  well it turned into a guts and oil job....  I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm.  also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust)  I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering)  I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...?  Maybe a factor?   What should the clearance be on the valves?  How should I check the timing on this bike?  (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)

      I have an unknown year Timberwolf. I have had to replace/repair some back yard wiring issues. With the wiring fixed, I compared to my other Timberwolf quads, I have found a problem. Starter is always running. I can only get it to stop by removing the positive lead from the battery.
