yes it is on the bottom and in the front. Mine needs to be replaced too, but I have been using the recoil. It usually only takes 2 or 3 pulls so its not a big deal.

It doesn't look difficult to take off, but I don't have the money for a new one, so I haven't actually looked too hard at it.

should get the new starter in a few days........mine used to start easy (1 or 2 pulls) too but is hard to start lately.....:confused:after the bendix was replaced so I could use the elect start and it started right up with elec start when I got it home then stopped the engine to fill tank with gas and it would not start again for about 1 hour, lots of pulling and bruised knuckles (really, ouch!):aargh: Have to adj carb, which was just cleaned, but too much effort to start with recoil....replaced selenoid too cuz it was just clicking.....and yes, charged battery....need elect start to adjust carb....will let u know how starter replacement goes....:skeptic:thanks for the input!!

Hey Wylde1, replacing the starter was easier than I thought.........since I don't have a service manual yet (but have one I bought online coming any day now) I went online and searched how to replace it,,,,came up with quite a few answers, most were saying to take the clutch out to access........I have pretty small hands so this was the way I did it....drain gas tank, turned quad on its left side balanced the handgrip on a 5 gallon bucket which was upside down so quad did'nt fall over , remove recoil and heat shield, locate bolts, remove red starter wire, then bolts, tapped with rubber mallet to remove, replace gasket, rebolt and reverse order everything else......did'nt have a clutch puller from how the internet said to do it and when I looked at the diagram the bolts for the starter were on the right side of the bike anyway, so just looking saved me the hassle. I was done in 1 hour, maybe less. BUT, when it started on first try, it had no compression, which is another story.........sigh!! gonna try them Namura pistons and rings............20 over, maybe a new carb kit too

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob

      Just picked an '03 Bayou 300 2WD.  It runs ok, needs a little help though. Maybe someone can answer some questions for me.
      1. The choke "off" position is the lever all the way right, correct?
      2. The choke seems mechanically... funky. It has a little valve clamp around the rubber boot where it goes into the carb, seems kind of janky, I don't think there's typically a valve clamp on that part? The engine seems like its running really rich, smoking a bit, so I wonder if I can just completely remove the choke cable to see if that's part of the issue? But I don't fully understand the choke needle setup. Is "choked" when the needle is being pushed in, or pulled out? Like it I chopped the cable just outside the rubber boot by the carb, would I be permanently choking it or permanently unchoking it.
      3. I've read that I can tweak the air/fuel screw and maybe fix the rich mix. Where is that even located, and if it's behind a cap that I have to drill out... where is that?
      Thanks for any tips

      So yesterday I picked up a 07 polaris sportsman 800efi stealth edition for 3k.  Will lead a pic ltr.  In good shape.  Here's what's wrong with it:
      The rpm needle doesn't work just like my other sportsman... not too worried ab that.
      The motor doesn't sound like it's running quite right and doesn't feel like it has much more power than my 500.  I'm thinking it needs a tune up and some fresh oil..  but also it feels like it's running rich.  It's a little buggy when you goose the throttle and sometimes farts when you let off (like I little backfire out the exhuast). I'm gonna check timing and valave clearence on the motor first but thinking of putting a tuner on it? Anybody got a suggestion?  Mainly looking for more power.

      Hi I have a 2000 big bear 400 and i just put a new carburetor on it and it idles fine but when you try to accelerate it sounds like it is going to die, so when it sounds like it is going to die I will give it more throttle then it will go just fine.
