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.

      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?

      As you can see in the video it usually takes the atv at least two tries for the starter to grab the engine, sometimes more. It has been doing this since we got the atv and we asked the dealer after we first noticed it and they said it was normal. It doesn't seem normal to me since I have never seen an atv that was this bad with a starter.
      Also you can hear an odd noise right after you turn off the atv, like the starter is disengaging finally or something.
      The teeth on the starter are fine which is leading me to believe it is the starter gears themselves.
      Before I drop $100 on new gears, what do you guys think? Could it just be one? How can I tell? Again any help or insight will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
