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

      Not sure how many of you will remember this or give a crap about it but back in 2016 I picked up my first old atv to rebuild. Yamaha bear tracker 250. I picked it up in NJ while I was out looking for a quad for my little guy since he started this atv thing after seeing a few old pictures of me in my hay day riding. 
       
      The person I was getting the 50cc quad had this one laying around and asked if I was interested in it.  It was beat up and hadn’t ran in a few years.  No spark the guy said and he left it to sit.  I wound up taking both bikes. 
      I wish I had pics but I deleted the original post on Quadcrazy and lost the old ones on my phone when I upgraded. 
      This was the atv that caused me to stumble upon Quadcrazy since I needed a little help with the spark issue.  So needless to say I fixed it, did some cosmetic work and she was good to go. I took it upstate and used the shit out of it for just about everything under the sun. This atv made it through some deep snow, mud etc. I decided to leave it up there and use it as a back up since it’s been about 50 atv’s later and I have newer machines now. But unfortunately it sat for some time and it’s a little beat up so I brought it back home and going to clean it up. Amazing how one year sitting has done so much damage. 
      This was the first atv that I owned in over 30 years! It’s the atv that brought me here to Quadcrazy where now I endlessly check the site to see what’s going on, who’s talking about what and who can we help with there problem or can help me with mine as well as the on slot of what I do today as a hobby with atv’s. It’s been a great pass time for me and my son with the projects we have gotten and get into. He’s learned how to ride so well it scares me a little watching him. He’s learned how to fix, maintain and upgrade atv’s. He’s insanely good with carburetors as well. 
      It’s a good thing when a kid wants to play in the garage over his X Box!!
      The funny thing about this bike is that when we finished it we thought it was the best thing! We were missing a rack on the front and didn’t care since it looked ok, had no clue where to get parts or how to fix plastics. I was so new to this again since I was staring all over again and now had to remember things and also teach my son!  
      So we will be tearing into the bear tracker to get her up and running again as well as maybe a few new cosmetic changes and hang on to her for a while since I love this bike.  The last two pics are the bike the day we finished putting it all back together and when it was upstate for the first week. 
       
      Had no intention of this post going so long. 🤷🏻‍♂️

      I have an '02 Taurus with 85k miles on her that I just bought.  Today when I was checking something under the hood I noticed this metal line cold and dripping with water...
       

       
      I had the air on but turned to the position of arrows pointing out of the dash and floor vents only.  The defrost or a/c function was not selected.  It seems to be doing it consistently.  I haven't traced all the parts of this car's a/c system yet but I don't know of anything else under a hood that turns cold and sweats.  Why would my compressor be working when it's not selected?  What tests should I run?

      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
