lt 80 starting issue

Hello, my sons lt 80 quad is having starting issues. Battery checked out good at the shop so I can cross that off the list. About every other start the starter relay clicks but the starter does not crank. If you bounce the bike fairly hard with the stat button engaged I can get it to crank. Do you think this is a starter issue or a wiring issue? How can a tell? Also I was wondering if anyone has the aftermaket pull start for this machine. Is this easy to pull for an eight year old??

If the starter spins when you give it a jolt is sounds like it could either be a loose connection or possibly a bad starter solenoid. First i would check and clean all the connections starting from the battery and work your way through to the solenoid then the starter. Also check for any loose grounds etc.
