Electric Start Help

Recommended Posts

A friend has a 250 EXC that won't start with the electric start, yet fires up easily with the kickstarter. We have already been through the battery aspect, charged, and a new one so its not the battery. It will crank until it drains the battery, but won't start. First of second kick it starts right up. I am baffled anyone have any other ideas?

When you say it cranks over are you sure it is turning the motor over not just the starter turning like maybee the gear on the starter is warn out.. Just an idea

Check the valves lately? Hard starting is a sign that they're out of adjustment.

Just a thought - pull plug out and check if it has spark when kicking, ( you know it has ), then check when using button. Maybe elec start is affecting spark or spark strength somehow....
