    2008 RXP starting issues

    I have a 2008 RXP. It always hestiates to start and feels like the battery is weak and that I just barely got it start every time, I have another 2007 RXP so i have that as a comparison. I swapped the batteries on the skis just to see if it made a difference and it didnt.

    am i in for a new starter?

    Most likely it's your starter solenoid going bad. They are very common to fail on these skis. It is item 9 on this page of the GreenHulk OEM parts store

    Check the main ground from the battery to the engine block. Most likely just need to clean the connections.
