Default Quad Mechanic needed

I bought a 1998 Polaris 250 Trail Boss 4 wheeler from my cousin for my Wife and daughter to ride. It has been sitting for a few years. I bought a new battery for it. I installed it now it's clicking at the solenoid. I'm guessing it's going to need a starter. It has a pull cord but the recoil is messed up on that. I also want all the fluids drained and replaced. I'm looking for someone some what close to Clinton Township (Metro Detroit area). If anyone can recommend someone please post up or Pm me.

Thanks, Matt

I bought a starter from DB Electrical. The price was reasonable. I found a lot of positive reviews for them online. I hope it works out. It should be arriving here tomorrow.

O boy now you have me a little worried. I did find a place close to my house that said they could rebuild the original starter for around $25.00. I guess I will get that done and have it as a back up one.
