Electrical help please


Hey guys my buddy has a chance to get a attic cat bear cat 454 4x4 quad and has asked a question I can't answer.the po said he hooked up jumper cables to it to get it to start once started he didn't remove them and thinks something electrical burn up.we can't find any melted wires.should density away from it or what would burn up if that was the case.the power is a friend of Ours to so he didn't lie about it.

I looked at it there's power to the ignition but no lights come on and it won't turn over any help would be appreciated.

How much power are you getting? Try boosting it again and see if it turns over. Nothing should have burned up unless he put more than 14 volts to it.

12v and it will turn over if I jump the solenoid.

Trace the harness and look for any broken wires or anything.

What year is the quad?

96 96 98 can't tell they only made it three years

Try replacing the solenoid or cleaning the connections on the one already there especially the one going the starter and the ground

      Hey guys im between a split decision about getting a quad or a dirtbike. So I was just wondering what your opinions are and dont give me 'it depends on who you are' crap. This is a opinion question just tell me what you really feel and why. And if you can tell me the funfactors of your choice and why you choose whatever it was you did.

      I have two rides in on my new Rekluse auto clutch and I have to say I'm very pleased. The install wasn't hard, but was pretty much a all afternoon sort of project. I also installed a left hand rear brake kit and a two finger cluth over-ride with the adjuster on the perch (which I rarely seem to need). It has all worked great right from the beginning. After struggling to get up a tricky hill in first gear, I tried it in second and the autoclutch helped me clean the hill easily. Not having to worry about clutch action in techinical sessions has also eased fatigue and just made it more fun all the way around. I ride mountain bikes alot, and having both brakes up on the bars has also been nice as it makes for a set-up just like the bicycle - in fact I like that as much as not having to worry about clutch manipulation. The brake on the bar is especially nice on tricky downhill sections where you need to paddle, such as nasty rock/rut stuff. So first impressions are that it was worth the investment -making the ride more enjoyable and easier at the same time!
