Grizz is a no start. EPS light is on...

OK, so a few days ago, I took the '09 550
Grizz out for a spin. No big deal, just ran around the dirt circle, through a dry field, and a couple of miles down a dirt road. No water, no jumps, not even anything more extreme than spinning donuts on a pea gravel road. Never had a problem. Brought her home, backed her into her spot in the garage, and shut her down. No warning lights were on at shutdown. It was night, and I would have noticed.
Today, I went to ride, and she wont start. Good battery, as I keep a Ctech charger on it when I park it, but I get nothing when I hit the starter. No click or buzz like a dead battery. Lights are bright and dont dim when I try the starter. It's like the neutral safety switch isnt working, except for the EPS light. The pod cycled thru when I turned on the key, as usual, but the EPS light stayed lit. I tried starting in neutral, park, and in gear with the brakes on. Nothing. I'm thinking it must be electrical, as it was fine when I brought it in last. Is there a fuse to check, if so, which one and where is it? Maybe a plug that may be loose? I could use some ideas here. Any help is appreciated.

try tapping on the starter with a hammer -- dont kill it -- maybe it locked up -- it happens..

is the kill switch on the handlebar turned off?
DON"T hit it with a hammer. it is a permanent magnent starter and you won't be doing it any favors. besides, if you get no click from the relay, it wouldn't be a faulty starter

Yes, there are (2) large fuses you should check right next to your starter relay/solonoid.

I believe the EPS light stays on until the machine has been started (normal)

After twelve years of therapy my psychiatrist finally said something that made some sense, "No hablo ingles."

I've been workin' on "My Garage" If you care to take a LOOK

Id check the fuses under the seat. If they are good check connectors.If still nothing its the starter! I had the same thing happen on a 2003 kawasaki 250 bayou last year(sold now) but i was riding all day and boom next morning no go. But im mechanically inclined so I tore the starter apart! And what do you know i got it fixed just needed cleaning! So I would tear it apart and check it first before i buy a new one. If you get it apart clean her last little thing I MEAN CLEAN!! and give her a shot if still nothing,then you will have to get another one. JMO But before I would spend like 100 bucks or however much they are id try fixing first!! Good Luck.Ron

Sounds to me like the handlebar killswitch is the culprit, make sure its in the right position haha. And like mentioned, when the key is turned on the EPS light is on until the engine is fired then it turns off. If your checking, the fuses are under the front hood. If you dont hear clicking from the solenoid, then you know the solenoid or a fuse is the problem, if you hear the solenoid clicking then it is getting power. I highly doubt you have starter problems, your quad is a 09, relatively new.

on old muscle cars , sometimes the starter jambs -- so you "TAP" on it with a hammer or whatever fits in there , just to see if it a starter problem --- and if that didnt work you take a screw driver and manualy ground out the starter and it should turn over if not bad ... thats all i meant -- i didnt mean full swing and hit your starter !!

i was gonna say the kill swithch but i thought he had that covered ??

i have hit many'a starter, but don't do that with a PM starter. on the good old starters with field windings, the magnets were bolted onto the housing. the newer permanent magnet starters have the magnets glued in place. i have replaced plenty of starters that someone whacked with a hammer and knocked the magnet into the armature, shorting the starter.
