Sportsman spinning starter...

The only thing I can think of....Imo remove the starter and see if there is damage or if you just need a new starter:thumbsup:

-Missing teeth on the flywheel.
-Missing teeth on the Starter.
-Burned up starter Solenoid.
-Solenoid wire broken or corroded.

What size sportsman?

Put the ATV in gear and push it a foot and try to start it again...If it starts then you are missing teeth on the flywheel...

I replaced the starter not all that long ago.... maybe a year or so. I'll try your suggestion. It's a 500 H.O.

try tapping the actual starter with a hammer. If that does anything for you, you are going to have to end up replacing the starter because it is binding up.

you may have a frozen bendix spring, starter turns but bendix is frozen from water getting in recoil housing, try removing recoil and cleaning . I just had that happen with mine a week ago
