    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...

    That sounds like a REALLY good idea! How/where do you secure the second (unused) belt so that it doesn't get next to anything that's spinning?

    The thing you're holding in your hand is attached to the bottom of the air box (don't know it's official name) and is there so you can see if you have oil in the air box. It's pretty hard to see if...

    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...

    Interesting. My "issue" couple years back was just #4 cylinder, but results are the same, fried piston/melted head. So ss are you saying that the ecu on these engines doesn't send the same signals to...

    You have to take out motor mount bolts/slide engine forward a couple inches to get belt to go between the now separated coupler. Seems crazy but that's how it's done.

    Me too, I think it would all come out of there eventually (unless there is so much that pump cavitates/won't go anywhere, like with a big ball of seaweed).

    Spark plugs would be first place I'd look. Every time mine have started running rough, new/cleaned spark plugs fixed it (except for the time there was crud in the gas tank).

    I can see that. So how do you get salt away into the flush? Do they make a gizmo that goes on the end of garden hose like an insecticide applicator?
