Hey guys, I have a 2018 Husky TX 300. Last Monday I went out riding at a local track and half way through the day my starter stopped working. When I push the button absolutely nothing happens. So I tested the batter and got 14 volts. I then noticed that my starter solenoid was not clicking like I thought it was supposed to. So, I jumped it out with a jumper wire and the starter got energized and tried to start. Is it as simple as that and my starter solenoid went out. Thanks!

Could be, but it will need to be tested.
Also check battery voltage when starter is enguaged. It may be dropping too much.
Bad or dirty connections can cause this.
How old is the battery?

I figured it out! There is a wire connection behind the front number plate that holds the wires from the starter button and one wire corroded and broke. The battery is the stock one that's a little over a year old.
