My Gator TX at times will not start; the solenoid just clicks when key is turned.
I have replaced the battery, starter and battery cable to starter.
It will start fine many starts but then will click for a number of tries and then start eventually. Not sure what to check next; ignition or possibly a grounding issue. I do not see any relays to possibly check? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Mine is doing the same thing now. Did you ever figure out what the problem was?
Have you throughly cleaned battery and starter terminals ?

The contacts on the starter switch may be iffy. Take a jumper and bypass to see if you get reliable starting. Also, if you have a volt-ohm meter, you can hook up to the two correct pins and turn the key repetitively looking for a jump in resistance.
