I recently installed electric start on my 08 xp 800. I am not sure what the issue is, but when you hit the start button all i get is a "click" noise and nothing from the actual starter. Does anyone know where to look first? Brand new battery. Thanks

I'm guessing a solenoid issue. Check wires and tap silver thing. On top of battery. Also if you jump power to other side it should start right up.

Tried arching the solenoid and nothing happened. Perhaps the starter is bad, but i can still freely turn it.

Check with multimeter the red positive wire at starter, and the engine ground wire.
Push the start button, and if you here the solenoid click read the multimeter DC volts.
It should read above 12v
If it does read 12v, the starter needs to be fixed repaired.
