Hi guys,

I know this subject keeps coming up, but I can't find anything on this specific issue.

When pressing the starter button there is a whirring from near the recoil starter, the electric starter is spinning but not cranking the engine over.

I've pulled the starter and renewed the brushes and cleaned the commutator, bench tested and it works great, connecting it up the the leads on the quad, it works great, but won't crank the engine over when installed.

repeated pulsing of the starter button will get it cranking the engine eventually and the engine starts, but once switched off it is back to the whirring and no cranking unless repeatedly pulsing the the starter button.

Any ideas on what to look at next?

model year is 2000/2001
