yes .. thats the safety .. i would clean the connections on the brake switch plug and any of the connections on the brake light wiring and any other connections (wire plug connections ) on it that you can find and see if that will help ... my 350 rancher did this a time or 2 and i found corrosion (green gunk) in the connections and it quit after cleaning ... the brake switch may also be dirty and corroded ...

if you can find some electric grease and put it in toyr plugs and lightly on the contact areas it will help it not to happen again ... corrosion on electric parts and contacts is the biggest cause of problems on atv's .. it should be the first place people should look at for problems like this ...

Apparently that was the problem area. I removed the connections, cleaned and put back on..Problem solved.. Thanks for your help. Saved me a few bucks I"m sure.

      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.
