    1100STX starter Question

    On a 1998 1100STX, the starter bendix slips very bad. Starter works fine but it only engages the flywheel about 1 out of 5 trys and often slips back out. I removed the starter and sprayed some penetrating oil and some lubricant inside the bendix gear area. Anything else I should try? What is the proper way to fix this problem?

    Problem corrected. Removed front cover and pulled bendix out a far as possible without removing flywheel. Cleaned and lubed and reinstalled and all is good.
