    Possible stuck starter, need some help

    So I have 2 Polaris Virage skis, 03 and 04. The 03 runs fine but the 04 isn't running. While trying to figure out what is going on with it I cannot get the motor to turn over. I have a brand new battery on it and verified it is fully charged. When I try to start the 04 it just clicks. Tried swapping the solenoids and both start my 03 just fine. Disconnected the solenoid and tried turning the motor over by touching the pos from the starter directly to the battery and all I get is sparks from the battery but the starter does not spin. Removed the spark plugs and tried turning the motor over by hand and I am able to with no issues. This is leading me to believe the starter is frozen or dead. Am I on the right path here?

    Thanks. Already pulled the exhaust and am about to try and get the starter out then call it a night.

    Ok so got the starter out and bench tested it. It was a little stiff at first but it is spinning. Should I go ahead and reinstall it and try again or anything else I should check first?
