2011 Rene 800etech backcountry. Replaced the secondary clutch rollers. Removed exhaust & battery. Followed all proper steps, even used a torque wrench to put it all back together. Now the sled will not even turn over, no power whatsoever. Battery is charged. Engine was running fine until a week ago when the rollers grenaded. It is my first time doing any work to this sled. Am I missing something??? I didnt play with engine or electrics at all (other than battery removal). Is there any secret switches that need to be reset after this procedure? I am stumped. My next move was so take off the secondary again and look to see if I disconnected any wiring by accident, but thought i'd ask here first. :)

 

Thanks in advance.

Did get all the grounds re-installed? Recheck your connections on the battery and check fuses

Figured out my issue, a friend suggested I jump the starter solenoid. Got some crank action. Either "edit for bad language" coincidence/ timing the solenoid quit working, or maybe from hammering out/ on the jackshaft it knocked something loose inside the solenoid... Anyways, hope someone can benefit from this in the future... If it wont start after clutch work, check your solenoid. :)

Or you damaged the little 5A fuse. Replace it and see if it starts.

Make sure you put two wires on the positive terminal side!

I checked and double checked the fuses prior to jumping the solenoid and they were good. I will put in the new solenoid tonight and post the results. Odd thing is, the parts guy at the dealer I talked to yesterday had the exact same issue with his 09. Did some work to his secondary and then had electrical/ starting issues. I'm thinking the solenoid doesn't like all the hammering it takes to get the shaft bearing out. I was wacking it pretty hard, not sure when the last time (if ever) it's been out.

Last night I was having electric start troubles with my girlfriends sled. I had a power probe. Checked all obvious connections first. Then proceeded to checking the fuses with the power probe. (let me add i had just done a bunch of work to the sled and it had worked before tearing into it.) All fuses checked good. So i began following the wires from the switch down. Come to find out, bad fuse connection. When i was testing the fuse with the power probe i was moving the fuse just enough for it to make a connection. Replaced the 5 amp fuse and all is well. Idiot. Usually am very quick to find electrical problems. If i would have checked the fuse by removing it i would have noticed the corrosion. Oh well. All is fixed. Don't forget to check the simple stuff FIRST. GOOD LUCK
