Starter Problems

I have a 2016 570 EFI that isn't starting correctly. Over time it has gotten where it wouldn't engage and start. Sometimes it would start and other times it wouldn't. I have taken the starter off and the gears look OK. I have watched You Tube on how to change this so I then went inside and checked the gears on the inside and they all look good. No signs of gear damage or shavings. I have also replaced the battery. I'm thinking the starter is not staying locked in while starting the engine. Can anyone give me experienced info on this matter.

Most likely the starter solenoid is not "kicking out" to engage the flywheel. When it does not start does the starter spin? if so good time to invest in a new starter or, if you can pull it apart you might be able to see what the hang up is. Possibly bad / worn out bushing or bearing, gummed up internal solenoid lever linkage or sliding gear.

Question where do most of you buy your parts?
Call dealer to get price, then check SuperATV, Amazon, eBay, Google search for aftermarket or OEM.
