What happened to my starter?
Posted March 10, 2012 - 01:15 PM
this happened after I went into a bunch of mud and doing some offroading.
My enduro kit lights are all working perfectly

Sometimes batteries just die and need replacing.

Oddly enough, I had same problem, don't forget to check the actual stater button....mine was bad....found out after doing test after test after test even changed the starter solinoid....stupid $12 part.
Different bike, but my riding buddies carburated Husqvarna had the same problem as you, and a new starter switch fixed it. You said it happened after being in a "bunch of mud"...you may have some dirt embedded in the switch. If you cannot disassemble and clean the switch, try a new one..like [color=#011A4D]drdfblackm[/color] said...a relatively cheap part.
You may also want to try just disconnecting the leads from the starter switch and jumping them (pretend you're stealing it) and see if it starts or at least turns over properly. If it does, you have your answer...a bad starter switch. If it still behaves the same way then you can eliminate the switch as the source of the problem.
But first make certain you have a good battery....just because its freshly charged doesn't mean its still good.
