  1. check the battery
  2. Make sure kill switch is not engaged
  3. Check gas level
  4. Does the ATV have a safety tether? If so reseat it.
  5. Make sure gas is on, some atvs have switch.
  6. Also check to make sure you are not running on reserve tank.
These are some basics, others are spark plug, starter and carb.

Got a 125cc Taotao atv for the kids.put new battery in new chain ,fuses all good checked all wires .no probs .cant figure why it wont even try and to sound or cranking .as it is electric star

Your starter is probably out, or not properly connected. Locate the starter and there should be two wires going to it, they both should be marked with + and - make sure red goes to positive and black to -
If you want to test your starter before buying a new one, take it off of the fourwheeler, and hook it up to the battery. (note: this is not recommended by the manufacturer may void warranty. If you do do it.... Hold on to that starter.)

My 2007 polaris 450 sportsman used to start with the pull start 2nd pull,now it starts for a couple seconds and stalls ,does this three or 4 x then starts and runs fine,by the way it won't start with...

Could be time to replace battery, this is most likely the culprit. These fourwheelers are very picky when it comes to low power. Your starter is also most likely just fine, the clicking you hear is the solenoid on the starter, so your battery has some juice, but not enough amps to turn over the starter. Also If the fourwheeler has sat for a long time then you may just need to charge the battery. The 2007 is most likely fuel inject which uses even more fuel when running and it also has its own computer kind of like a PCM in a car or truck. These all need a good supply of power and the stator which is like an alternator usually needs the help of a fully charged battery to keep everything running properly. Also note, once you get a new battery or charge it in some cases the ATV should run smoother.
