XL would not crank

Hey guys, I had a wierd issue this weekend. We rode for about 4 hours and I went out to the drag strip and ran one race and pulled over to shoot the bull with some friends. When I went to leave the thing would not crank over. When I turned on the key the fuel pump came on and everything seemed to work except the starter. So my brother went to get the tow strap. How embarrassing, having that Polaris XP pulling my Revolt, LOL. I was checking all connections and fuses while he was gone. The wierd thing I found was when I pulled the connector loose coming from the stator on the engine the connector was full of oil. So I am confused, does Redline put a di-electric grease in that connector or is the turbo compressing oil through the casing of the wires and forcing it up the wire casings into my plug connector? When he got back and we attached the tow strap I got in and hit the start button and it cranked over and worked the rest of the day. WTF is going on? So the XP did not have to tow me, thank God for that. I never would of heard the end of that.

Sounds like the oil is wicking through the harness

Re: XL would not crank

Maybe check the brake switch and neutral switch.... fuel pump would come on but engine would not crank with either of those acting up.

Re: XL would not crank

You need to read all of our posts from Oregon. We've been draining oil out of that plug for almost 2 years now. It wicks out of the crankcase into the plug. I put a small slit in each wire just in front of the plug on the crankcase side and that stopped it from going into the plug. All the other guys just drain the plug after each weekend. We also had a brake pedal safety switch go bad too.

Re: XL would not crank

Thanks guys. That should take care of it for me. The support here is great! I have never seen ANY motor do this. Is it a Weber thing?

I have the part in stock if it is the banjo bolt brake line switch.

Is it bad to leave the oil in there? I noticed mine two years ago and have never drained it.

Re: XL would not crank

I bypassed the brake switch long ago in my Revolt when, during a race, I went to restart it an NO GO!!! I figured it out pretty quickly, but it lost me some time. Bypass and be done.

As for the oil in the connector, very common issue. Mine was the same. I dump it out occassional.....but haven't found it to be a problem yet.
