    1998 STX 900 Wires Getting HOT!!

    I have a 1998 STX 900..

    I just purchased it 2 weeks ago and when I put a battery on it just now..

    I tried to start it and all I get is a "CLICK"

    Red cables are HOT to touch and Starter is VERY HOT Too touch....

    What is the Issues here??

    New Motor and said it ran perfect when last ridden in June..

    I'd bet that the impeller is rubbing the jet pump housing, preventing the crankshaft from turning. This essentially locks the starter and the current draw goes through the roof.
