2006 outlaw 500 starter?


Hey all,

just picked up a '06 outlaw 500, guy i got it from stated the starter bendix needed replacing? after tinkering a bit, the starter actually engages, but won't turn the motor over, it acts like it's hitting a mechanical blockage.

After pulling the magneto cover and checking the reduction gears for binding,and making sure the flywheel turns, I'm stumped! :bonk:

also, does the magneto center section that's bolted to the flywheel supposed turn independently of the flywheel?

is it possable the starter is faulty and does'nt have enough left in it to turn it over?

:bonk: looks like the 1 way clutch between the magneto and the starter ring gear is shot! have both the 1 way clutch and a starter on the way, so we'll see if this is the fix i'm looking for

Rick, Ore:ride:

OK! so i get the magneto off, and the 8 cap bolts holding the 1 way clutch on have been sheared completely off and the remainding pieces are binding the starter gear up!:bonk: after a quick call to a friend with a machine shop and some new cap bolts, I've got it put back together and running

, going to give it 30 minutes of run time and drain the crankcase oil and change the filter again ( flushed the crankcase before reassembly )

will be taking it out this weekend and seeing how well my repairs are going to work out, motor has a little noise on the timing chain side, so I'll be keeping an ear on that :bonk:

Rick, Ore

      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.

      Can anyone tell me the good and bad about the predator? I found a 2003 troy lee addition for $1500, I haven't seen it yet but the guy said his brother ran it out of oil so he had a shop rebuild the engine about a year ago. He said they replaced just about everything except the crank which seemed like an important component to skip. Anyways, if there is anything I should look out for, let me know!

      has anyone else had this problem?ive put in a new float valve and its still getting fuel in the oil and running rough.i checked the vacume pump but it seems to be working alright but im wondering if fuel is somehow getting sucked in through the vac hose from the pump to the intake.

      If you seen my other thread you will know that I am looking for a suitable quad for my grandfather and mom. I want an older utility quad with good predictable power, low and cheep to repair, and has AWD. There are several models even as early as the mid 90's and I need to know what the differences are for each. I don't even know which ones are 4x4, 2T or 4T, e start or pull/kick, displacement, features and so on. Anybody that knows the difference or has a link to that info please post it. Thanks in advance.
