    check for proper oil level.  Too little oil and you will NEVER START THE BIKE. You are talking about 2 different systems here. 1. engine(and crankcase oil level must be right for it to start)

    2. the EPS also takes fluid - maybe it is low so you should remedy that...for better steering control. While you CAN IGNORE THE EPS once the bike is running, you are losing a feature that was added to improve handling.

    Reset it

    Owner groups are so much more useful than the snotty responses you often get here from people who know better but just want more points.

    It won't turn over??  Or it does turn over, but the engine still won't start??

    EPS (Electronic Power Steering) should not be preventing it from starting or moving. Not starting is probably a different issue that doesn't have much, if anything at all, to do with the steering system. Check the spark plugs or just replace them with brand new ones, make sure it's getting fuel by pulling the fuel line off the engine and that it has fresh fuel (drain the current fuel and replace it if it's been sitting for a few months), make sure it has oil, turn the engine by hand and make sure it turns and has compression. If you did not use it over the winter season and it sat with fuel in it that might be the problem. It could be any number of things that's preventing it from starting. The EPS should not be stopping it from cranking and starting up. EPS has nothing to do with the engine. 

    It should start and drive without EPS working properly but I wouldn't recommend driving it if you do get it started without EPS. Safety first. It's going to be difficult to steer with the electronic steering not working right which could lead to accidents and injury. 

    Get it fixed. Take it to a motorcycle shop or kawasaki dealer. A reqular car mechanic should be able to diagnose and fix it too but an auto shop that would be willing to look at and work on an ATV like that might be a bit difficult to find. 

    If it's under warranty take it to the dealer you bought it from.
