Any help will be apreciated Thanks
i presume the battery is charged? is there a fuse on the hot/red wire that's still good? have you checked the wiring on the start switch to make sure it ain't all jacked up and malfunctioning(grounded out)? have you pulled the spark plug out, connected it to the coil wire and grounded to the jug and pulled to test for spark? i presume it's getting fuel to the piston from the carburetor? some items to look at and get back with us. if the quad has been sitting awhile, the carb may need a cleaning also. bayou, hmmmm,
i wonder if the kawasaki needs the valves adjusted also? hmmm..
if the battery is charged up, turn the key switch on and jump the solenoid (with a screwdriver---post to post) and see what happens. the starter should turn the engine. try it..........
