    Huh, what did we do previous to YouTube? This is exactly what my 2008 Honda 500
    is doing. I figured it was the solenoid under the seat. I’ll try tapping
    the starter tomorrow when it’s not raining. Yes of course it quit while
    meeting outside… Thanks for posting.

    Thank you so much for the video and the detailed directions. It helped at
    least gave me confidence to work on it myself.
    I tested the solenoid with a plain light tester. one poste always hot the
    other lit up when I hit the start button. went to the starter and when I
    hit the start button I was getting juice the light would go on. (terrible
    starter) I ordered one for 43 bucks and found it quite simple to change out.
    Starts perfectly. Thank you.

    OH, here’s perhaps a stupid question. Until I get the starter replaced, how
    long can I just keep on tapping the starter with a screw driver? Also,
    mark, I did start mine once via the pull start, but it was not simple

    Unbelievable! The exact same problem suddenly happened with my 2006 Honda
    TRX 350FE–just clicking when I tried to start it. Suddenly started when I
    was grabbing a load of firewood for the huge storm blowing in. I use the ATV
    to plow the long driveway and thought I was screwed. Tapped the starter as
    you suggested and it worked like a charm! Thanks ProWoodman. I hope you
    will receive the same generosity that you have given!

    Thanks for the vid, we’ve just tried early up my dads TRX300, same
    problem, will not start using push button, makes a whirring noise but
    nothing else. Battery charged. Starts with the kick-start first time. Will
    try your method tomorrow see if it works! Thanks again.

    Yeah, when it clicks like that, take something and lightly tap on the
    starter motor. Whatever thing will work, screwdriver, hammer, even a small rock.
    After doing that, if it starts up, your starter is terrible.

    I agree, plus the time it takes to place them in. I dont know whatever thing about
    replacing brushes in a starter, so i figured replacing the whole thing was
    my best option.

    Im not a mechanic, i have no thought. I wish i could help. Maybe search the
    web for a local ATV mechanic and see if they can find the problem. It might
    be something small that you can fix yourself.
