Heavy duty starter search.

I traded my Redline revolt for this 2005 Yamaha Rhino. It has 800cc top end kit
Big bore carb
High tech air flow/filter system
Clutch kit
Aftermarket cooling systems for motor and transmission
Dual batteries

Not to mention armor kit, Glass windshield with wipers lots of other things. The top end kit has about 3 hours on it. The reason for the dual batteries is because the starter lags a bit. Now I think I smoked it (smell of electrical and a non engaging starter. Is there an after market heavy duty starter I can find somewhere? I really like the Rhino better than the revolt but a rhino not running is lame!

New to the forums, glad to be here.

Dan

Stock motor is the 650cc, but it has a new top end kit installed. The work was done at the outdoor toy store in Carson WA. My friend Rick Estey owned the store. And the guy I got the rhino from put about $20K into upgrades, including a lift and tracks. So the motor was built for more torque with a larger carb, and bigger cooling system. But the track system was a failure, kept breaking. So it was removed and lift kit was removed. We drove it around for about an hour yesterday, the starter was i bit draggy, then after parking it, the starter doesnt turn the motor and there was an electrical smell along with a little smoke.

Never heard of a problem like that due to the cc's of a motor. It sounds like you have a ground/electrical issue going on.

There are decompressor pins on the cam gear that will decompress the motor during starting. These guys may not have reinstalled them correctly.

The stock starter should be plenty, no need for a heavyduty starter,

But your problem sounds more electrical than mechanical

Okay. Suppose it is the decompressor pins on the cam gear. Is there a repair manual I can get for this machine and do it myself or is it rather technical? I am assuming that if the people who worked on it didnt get it right...What chance do I have. I am mechanically inclined, no expert, but I can wrench on stuff.

New development. After charging battery #1 last night, no change. After charging battery #2 today, it starts right up and keeps starting. My son said he got it to start after it had the electrical smell etc, but "it took a while" I cant for the life of me understand why he would keep trying and not let me deal with it. ( I think he is the reason they have warning signs like dont touch moving blades, do not operate snow blower on roof.) Anyway, 2 things. Does it still sound like it could be the decompressor pins on the cam gear even though it is starting now after "locking up"? and do I need to replace any gaskets when I remove the cover for the starter to inspect it?

sounds like you had a dead battery,and you were getting the starter hot from not enough juice to crank it

I'm stayin neutral here, but you DID report kyle's post to admins.
that might work at rf, but not here, not even if johnny asked me to remove
kyle's post would I do it.that is on principal alone.
