Hey ez. So i want to back up for a minute and ask a few questions. 

1. Did you change all the parts at the same time or was it process of elimination ?

2. Did you use oem parts specifically the ignition switch?

3. Have you tried to pull the main ground off of the frame, cleaned and reinstalled? 

4. Have you tried to apply voltage directly to the starter to make sure your cranking problem is not the starter or the starter clutch? 

5. Have you checked your kill switch for continuity with a tester to make sure its closing and opening? 

It sounds like an aftermarket ignition switch to me but i could be wrong. 

Are you handy with an electrical tester?

well a little background i got this after it had been sitting for more than ten years under a tree. a lot of dry wiring and mice had made this thing home. after cleaning it up i began with some parts simply because they were missing.

ok im not familiar with the main ground your speaking of. yes basically i replaced all those parts over a few days. when i bench tested the starter it worked.

i have a multi meter but generally dont use it.

Your very welcome. There is a topic on cleaning carburetors that's helpful. 
Be sure to post a few pics of the progress.  I like seeing old bikes that have been sitting around being brought back to life.

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.
