01 Suzuki Quadmaster 500

We got this bad boy off of craigslist and it was great for about 1000 feet. It stalled and we were not able to start it back up/ via starter.

I started it back up adjusted the carb and cleaned it up, found the fuel shutoff valve was backwards. so then we get out and run it again. Somehow it stalled again, except this time the starter wouldn't start it. tried pulling no luck.

Check the starter and the wire running from the solenoid is starting to melt. Removed the starter and tested it, it runs smoothly. took a screwdriver to the bendix gear and it won't move... I can't find any decent service manuals and I'm thinking that it's the bendix locked up.

It will pull, idk about pull start, sounds like the engine is turning.

My next step is to pull off the cover, is it just rtv sealant?

I'm new to atvs but not to mechanic work.
