Take the advice of whipper and wedge. I replaced batteries, and 2 selinoid before I finally listened to them on the ground wire, and shure enough thatís wat it was, a couple hundred dollars later. I promise they know.

Not smart on electrical stuff, but I know what the ground wire is.  Will check all of them I can find. I believe something shook loose while moving it and that may be it.  thanks.

Check All your Grounds first. Then your main lead. If all are good then it may be the starter.
Try Cleaning the wire ends first .
Go after the Simple little things first !

OK, I've only had my 1997 MAX II for 48 hours and already needing help.  Saturday afternoon when I tested it, it started up fine and ran.  Trailered it home (2 hrs), rolled it off the trailer and tried to start it. Got a kinda whine when I went to the start position.  Used the recoil starter and fired right up. Figured it was the battery.  Swapped it. Now I get nothing and the Amp meter does not move. Still fires up with the recoil.  Bad Starter Solenoid? Bad Starter (does it have a starter)?  Electrical stuff to me is like magnetism - it is all black magic.
