Im in iowa and its cold here. I got some water in my starter button and it froze up once. Now it sticks once in awhile and gets annoying. Also, today it started not working unless i press it in and up. Anybody else having this problem? Another question, my front plastic is rubbing somewhere, it has since i got it and makes like a squeaking noise. What should i do?

I have not had any probs with my starter button, and as for the plastic noise, it is prolly just rattling around like everyone elses.

My starter button started sticking on me last time I was on my predator. It was from the wet and sandy conditions we were riding in. Sand was getting up around my starter button and when I would start it and some sand would get behind the button thus causing stickage. Eventually all the sand worked it's way out from the button and no probs since.

Was it difficult to take apart casey? I tried taking the screws out but one was under the grip somewhat. I backed down cuz i didnt want to mess anything up. Do you have to take the grip off?

No button probelms here...I did have all that squeaking noise from my front plastic as well....I cut off the plastic that holds the clips that attached to the gas tank and drilled a hole in the center of that to match up to the holes in the tank. Then I tool off the raiser from the tank and used a long screw and spacer the screw thru the outside and into the tank. Very secure and QUITE... I will post pics this weekend of the whole thing....hope this helps

My buddy and I both had problems with the starter button. This was after going through lots of mud. We took apart the switch and put some lithium grease on the contacts. Once it's re-assembled you can spray some white grease in there from the holes on the bottom. As long as you wipe off the excess you won't get too much stuff stuck on them. We took them out in the sand afterwards and no problem. I'm gonna spray it every once in a while. Be carefull when taking it apart. LOts of small spring and ball bearings.

I have rolled my quad in the dunes many a time and sand has gotten all up in that ****. But I still havnt had any problems with the thing sticking. The front plastics are a piece of crap is all. Simple as that. Alls I did to stop it from making anymore noise was i drilled a holes along each of the edges of the plastics where the gas cap is and I laced a black shoe string through it all. It looks kinda fairyish cuz I've got a black bow on my quad but aw what the heck it keeps the **** intact.
