Sounds like a game of chance finding the short. Try pulling the fuse & hooking up a 9 volt dummy light to the dead side of the fuseblock & the frame. Then start jiggling wires, when the light keeps flickering on & off youre getting close. Definately sounds like a chaffed wire to me. You unfortunately will probably need to be taking off some of the plastics. Focus on the steering shaft area,dash and any othe places moving parts could rub thru wiring. Especially look behind tie straps where the harness is attatched to a frame member or metal brackets. Good luck. Youll be ecstatic when you find a bare wire. :-) Also, make sure the ignition switch itself isnt bad & shorting out internally. ( unplug it while doing the test.) Do you have a heavy keychain hanging off the key?, just a thought.

      The 2024 ATVs are out and I was just looking at the websites for Yamaha and Suzuki. The Grizzly and King Quad have come a long way, probably two of my favorite quads over the years. Both of these come with power steering but I almost like the King Quad styling a little more. The plastics haven't changed much over the years either, mayeb a little more rugged. The King Quad racks are more like the Polaris plastic racks (I think they were the first to introduce these) but on a closer look, I think its just plastic covers over the traditional metal racks. The Grizzly still keeps the old style metal racks. I like the display/instrument panel on the Grizzly more.

      Thoughts on these two? Here's a pretty good comparison of both 2023 models. I didn't know some of these things like no seat latch on the Grizzly and hydraulic rear brake vs cable. Good video to watch if you are consideting these:

      I added more fresh gas it sat one day now, it's acting up again. Before cleaning out carburetor it wouldn't idle good and had gas leaks from carburetor. Now it idles pretty good but, if I increase throttle speed at a certain amount it starts missing bad. I'm going to try and post a short video. Just about ready to give up on this thing.😒  you can see reflection perking in video.

      So, I bought the machine almost a year ago and have been chasing problems. I have replaced the battery, starter solenoid, spark plug, and the starter. Since having replaced those, it doesn't want to start. I checked the carb, and it was wet as well as the spark plug. And I've searched multiple forums and cannot find an answer. So, anything that helps is appreciated, thanks.
