Discussion Starter #1 (Edited)
I just rebuilt my engine and reinstalled it yesterday. I turned the key and cranked the engine a couple of times for about 10 seconds each time. I then decided to spray a little starting fluid in the carb and just as I got ready to I heard a snap and caught a spark out of the corner of my eye by the solenoid. I then tried to crank it again and nothing. No click no nothing. I checked the fuses and one was cooked. I replaced the fuse and turned the key again and click. Another blown fuse. I then disconnected the starter cable, replaced the fuse and tried again. Click. Another blown fuse. Does anyone have any ideas? Bad solenoid? Bad starter? I am going to bypass the solenoid when I get home but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas. Any help would be helpful. Thanks. Steve.

If you have solid state ignition the coil may have burned out. That is all it took for my raider 10 coil to go was the grounding of a 12v wire to the frame.
