    Good plan. He's very much an expert on these Kawis. Did he by chance see the pic of that piston/cylinder? I'd be curious to know what he thinks did that. Looks like something bigger than a piece of a...

    Mad Dog,
    Are you sure the head is ok? My head was trashed due to a melted piston. I sent it to Kawiperformance up in NY and they salvaged the good valves etc/put them in a new blank head (with the...

    When I did it 2-3 years ago, I did it with exhaust manifold off. You are correct that a couple of those bolts are REALLY hard to get at with motor installed, but I'm fairly sure the service manual...

    Are you talking about the vent at the back of the valve cover that goes to the catch can? If so, how would you get a "pressurized" valve cover? Leaking valve, cracked head?

    Problem went away after putting skis on battery tenders. No hesitation, cranks right over with one push of starter button. Definitely a battery issue (I think).

    It's supposedly a "smart" charger and when I went out to check both of them around noon, they both showing solid green (fully charged). I did my temp check with the bbq grill temp controller and...

    When I rebuilt my engine couple years back I ran into same issue. The new rod was a few grams lighter so the guys at Kawi Performance took some off the other 3 rods. Or maybe it was the other way...

    Box says it's good with lead acid, AGM, and gel type batteries. It lists maximum operating temperature of "50 degrees C Typical," whatever that means. Apparently this model of BT (BT Jr in my case),...

    Yeah I think I see it now, and it IS kinda hard to put into words. I'm gonna call them inner/outer parts corresponding to starter side/rotor side. So initially the starter turns (inner) and grabs the...

    Thanks Steve that helps, but still can't quite "see it" in my mind. These pics are from link you sent me and both imply a change in direction to disengage the mechanism from the...

    Steve,
    I distinctly remember having the gear assembly (bendix) out and in my hand when I had the one ski completely tore down. I also remember thinking that maybe I should replace it, but after...

    Yes I agree, sitting for months is bad on batteries. Let me try again on the question. Is sitting for months a thing when it comes to the "click" followed by nada/starter not turning engine over? IOW...

    On the same subject; what do yall think is most likely culprit when you push start and only get a click: battery getting weak or the starter/bendix/start relay not liking sitting for two months. My...

    I had a pair of '96 900Zxi(s) that I bought in 2004 for 4k total including the trailer. Those things were a blast and very low maintenance too. In the 8 years I had them, I only had to rebuild the...

    How do you check that? What is the result if it's not venting? I'm assuming that to check the catch can, you just take it off and see if there's any oil in it? How much oil in the catch can would be...
