2004 eiger electric start problem

i have a2004 eiger that has no spark when you use the electric start but when you use the pull start you get spark and it will run. Furthermore if you pull the pull start while the electric start is turning it will start. any suggestions?
I am completely baffled.
It is an automatic trans.

Im having a similar delimia with a different brand of atv,been all over the net trying to find a solution with no results.I have many years of repair experiece on atvs and have came to this conclusion.It has to be a loose ground somewhere or the starter is going bad and drawing to many amps and robbing the ignition.Now with the eiger they is a known problem with the eigers of the magnets coming unglued from the flywheel getting chewed up and causing havoc.Not saying this is your problem but its worth checking out.

If it dont work we will fix it while we have our dirty clothes on.Best experience is hands on experience.

where is the flywheel located (what side) is it difficult to remove the flywheel.
the starter is only 6 months old and I also had a battery charger on for a while when I was cranking it over. Thought the starter was not spinning the engine quick enough. Not the problem
