remove starter sounds like the bandix is sticking, might just need to be cleaned and reassembled. If not might need the starter rebuilt.

The starter motor is staying powered? That would be the starter relay sticking. If the starter is being driven by the engine while its running than the one way bearing on the flywheel has failed.

      I changed the starter and starter solenoid. Battery died so I bought a new battery.  Hooked up positive post first then I went to hook up negative wire and the atv tried to start. Key is not in the ignition and start switch is not being depressed. Anyone ever have this issue?  I was going to check solenoid with meter, but haven't had a chance yet.

      Okay well I got a starter with a Yamaha moto 4 I bought but I'm 99% sure it is not a moto 4 starter. I can't find numbers on it any where.
      So what I'm looking for is
      A. What is it from/for?
      B. How do I test it, because I'm gonna sell it, via eBay, craigslist, something.

      I have a 99 BearTracker. As soon as I put the positive terminal on the battery it starts cranking over whether the key is on or not. Any Ideas?
