Honda foreman 500 FM 2012.
Starter was making a grinding noise then won’t start on the switch, but will pull start.
Replaced charred mess of a starter (magnets had fallen out) and solenoid for good measure… still nothing! Checked the battery, thought it was a little weak (12.3v) so put a car battery direct to lines with battery off. Still nothing, checked the starter and it was warm, but not turning the engine over.
I’ve now pulled the whole arse end of the quad out thinking it could be something to do with the starter clutch, but it appears to be working fine (turning freely one way and not the other). So completely stumped!
Runs absolutely fine when pull started.
