Hey guys, I'm installing a new battery on my LT150 and the scooter tries to start when I touch the leads to the battery. I'm thinking the solenoid is probably stuck, but I don't really know what to do about it. Is this an easy thing to fix? Thanks y'all - much appreciated!

I'me pretty sure the LX starter relay can be carefully opened and cleaned. It's a standard part at most auto-stores (be sure to get the high-amp version) - and the contacts welding shut is not that uncommon.
