I bought a nicely maintained '01 LC4 Enduro from a fellow who was a weight nut and had stripped everything he could from it, including the starter. That did not suit me, but he said all the parts were in the box and that it had been working fine when he stripped it. It kick-starts and runs fine. Today I reinstalled the starter. I'm pretty sure I found the proper electrical connection---a small cylinder beside the battery, with a thick but vacant connector post that fit the cable from the starter and which was covered with a rubber cap just to keep it from grounding. From looking at the parts manual, it looked correct. But nothing happens whan I press the starter button. Zip. No clicking or humming or anything. I tried holding in the clutch in case it's one of those setups, but nada. Fiddled with the engine kill switch, and checked all the fuses--still nothing. He did take off some other wiring, including the neutral indicator light (he said the wire looked 'vulnerable' in its exposed position). I think he may have also removed the down-kickstand---no-start wiring setup. I'm wondering if maybe taking off some of that other wiring might have messed up the e-start? Any clues? I did see a couple of of disconnected wires under the headlight cover, but could find nothing that they might have come loose from. I'm no electrical wizard---could I test the starter by taking it back off and reversing it---leaving it bolted down pointed the wrong way (to be grounded), and then just pushing the cable end against the positive battery terminal to see if it spins?
