Battery is charged. Lights are bright and winch raises and lowers snow blade easily. Battery terminals are clean. Also cleaned connections at starter solenoid and at starter itself. Jumped across terminals at starter solenoid and starter just clicks. Removed starter and hooked up to 12v and starter spins right over. Engine starts easily with pull start. Do I replace the starter or the battery or what? Help!!!

I'd start w/ making sure the connections are good and tight to the starter. Hook a jump box up to the battery and see if it starts, if it does then it is the batt. You can also have someone bang on the starter while you crank it. My guess is that it's your battery. My bomby 500 quest has had a dead battery for about 3 months.....lights still work and everything, i have been starting it with a battery tendor every time I ride it. Laugh

hope this helps, I'm no mechanic but have had a lot of crappy quads!!!!

Thank you for your response. Stuck a new battery in it today and that did the trick!
