My 07 LTR 450 will not start up. The starter is turning , battery is good. But it just wont fire up. Anybody might have an answer before I start my mission to change plug?

If the battery isn't fully charged, the FI won't operate. The motor will crank, but it will not fire. I would start there, put the battery on a charger to make sure it is 100% charged and then try. I was told the battery needed to be put on a tender once a month to keep in in top shape to avoid that problem. I haven't done, it, nor have I had any problems, but I do know that the FI needs a certain amount of voltage to operate. You also might check your kill switch and attatched wiring, make sure all the ignition components are plugged in tight. The motor will still crank if the ignition is off. Good luck, I know how much of a pain it is to take the tank off.

Thanks for reply. I will try that this weekend. My battery is old and has not givin me problems until now. I should probaly just invest in new battery and see if that works. If not , next step.

I think my battery might be bad. I charged it, changed plug and when I try to start it, I put a voltage meter on it and it shows 12.7 V. But when I hit the start switch the voltage drops down to 8.8 to 9.3. Will that not fire up my FI's? HELP!

Have the battery load tested, it is free at most auto parts stores or repair shops. As far as an easy way to get to the plug, there is none, you need to take the tank off, it literally sits right on top of the plug. There are instructions on how to remove the tank in the owners manual. It is a pain, but after you have done it a few times, it becomes routine. Since it sounds like you have never been in there, you will want to pop the vavle cover off and check the valves while you have the tank off. If the valves are too tight, that could be causing your starting problem too. That usually is a progressive issue, the machine becomes hard to start before it stops starting completely, but I wouldn't rule it out. Either way, I'm sure it is time to check your valves anyway. Better safe than sorry.

      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.

      Hello Guys!
      Dumb question. How much oil registers on the oil level gauge while running? The oil level reads correct when off, but while running I can only see just a little bit in the oil level gauge. Makes wonder if the oil isn't circulating well enough.
      Also, whats your preference in battery brands for ATV's (standard or AGM). We don't ride it all that often.
      Thanks in advance for any info.

      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 went out to ride my quad today. When I started it up it ran for a minute, then died. Since then it will turn over but won't start. I've check the spark plug and get great fire. I have had this quad for about 6 months, and very new to breaking it down. But need help. Thanks
