    starting issue

    I just recently got my carter gtr 250 running. Me and my son went out to the farm to go riding. We rode for about a hour. we decided to take a little break. When we went to go back riding, the buggy would not turn over. My lights and horn would work but buggy would only make a clicking noise. We got it back home and I put it on my charger but it said it was charged. I tried to jump the solenoid. The bolts on the solenoid turned bright red from touching them and the starter did nothing. Anyone have any suggestions as to what to look at next?

    Is the motor siezed? You might try to pull off a timing cover or side plate, and turn it over. A 250 should turn over with a couple foot pounds, up until the compression stroke.

    If it turns over, your starter motor may be shorted internally, or siezed.

    The motor turns over. I took the starter off and connected it straight to the battery, got a few sparks but starter motor didnt turn over.

    Will the starter turn over by hand?

    No. I took it to advance auto parts, and they said it was bad. That it was seized up. Does anyone know where to find a starter for it?

    I had a similar problem. Ran fine. Then had issues starting when it was hot. then it just stopped. I stripped the starter and the brush springs had rusted shut. WD40 and a little working them back and forward and it went back to working perfectly. Not sure if you're able to strip your starter but if you can its worth checking for a fast easy fix.

    Thanks, I may have to do that. I checked on a new starter and it was $165.00.
