97 Prairie 400 won't start, electrical issue?


Recommended Posts

It will start sometimes, but seems random. Here's what it does. battery is fully charged and new. I just got the atv so I assume it has to be in nuetral to start. When in nuetral, turn on key and a round relay or something next to battery clicks once. Push start buttom, nothing. (if you turn on the key while in any gear, no click) I have used a screwdriver to jump across selenoid and it turns over, but will not fire at all and of course wont run.

Every once in a while when you turn the key on and push the start button, it actually turns over and starts up immediately. Runs great too.

Please help. Anyone ever had this problem or know what it might be or how to test for problem.

Thanks

      Hey all back again with my 1989 moto 4 250.
      After putting a new carb on it it's really sputtery, it has new gas and I'm wondering what to tune on the carb to make it idle better. I've attached a video to describe the issue more. The bike is still work in progress but I think the video gets the point across. Thanks!

      Does anyone own a Massimo MSA450 ATV Quicksand oe see these? It looks like Tractor Supply sells them for $6K. It looks pretty solid, has independent rear suspension. 
      Here's the listing on tractor supply:

      So we are almost a month into winter and I've been so busy working on my house that up until today, I didn't realize that we just haven;t gotten any real snow yet to warrant putting the plow on my grizzly. So that got me thinking, what are the latest plows out there and what ATV plows are the best? I've got 2 snow plows for my grizzly, a quadboss pile driver atv plow set up and a snowsport ATV plow. They are both a bit dated now and I tend to stick with the snowsport due to ease of use and I just like it so much. So if you have a plow on your ATV, please let us know what it is and post a picture with your atv/plow would be awesome. Would also like to know what you like and dislike about it.
      This is back a while when I did a write up on these 2 plows.... in 2009 I got the snowsport and in 2012 I got the quadboss.

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!
