Default LT80 starter issue

Well the neighbor kid thought my boys quad would make a good submarine ......anyhow it is up and running but the starter went out ( pull start fires it right up) I put an eBay starter on it and it worked for a day then quit .... I returned it got another one and it would not work at all. The relay just makes a buzzing sound. Well I ponied up and bought an OEM starter and relay thinking the second starter was bad well turns out it was probably fine. The new starter is installed and the new relay is making the same buzzing sound. I checked the fuse it is good I hit the reset button and I donít really know which way to go from here. I am sure it is related to all the water. As always thanks for the help !

Flat battery, bad connection, or bad earth. Other possibility seized engine, usually because the cylinder is full of fuel due to you leaving the tap on prime.

pull start fires it right up

Just covering everything Jack, that was when the first starter "went wrong" by the third starter the engine could be locked.

Yes it will pull start and runs great no issue's which makes me happy I put the pull start on. When I stick a test light in the relay harness when I get to the white one the relay makes the same sound as when I start it. Does anyone know what color wires should always have power on that part of the harness and which color wire should have power when the start button is pushed. Could it have something to do with the safety switch or would the quad not run at all if that was not working properly ??
As always thanks for the help!

Update ...... well I called a friend of mine with the same quad and we walked thru a couple of things and he ask if the battery was good and I said yes it is. During some diag I noticed my test light was really dim. Well my buddy suggested jumping it with my big quad just for kicks. Well guess what the starter turned over. So I ether have a bad battery or a bad battery charger. Thanks for the help
