    2001 Yamaha gp1200r Idle gear replacement

    When i go to start my Jetski the starter just spins freely and never engages, so i removed the starter and found that a couple of the teeth of what I believe to be the idle gear are broken off.
    I am wondering what the best way to replace the gear is, I assume it requires the engine to be removed from the hull. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yep or turn it up engine at an angle so you can get your flywheel puller on it as it has to come off to remove the bendix, watch out for bendix washer can not remember if that engine had one or not so you dont loose it, do not by aftermarket junk get a good oem used one, that bendix loosing teeth, I hope you dont have water intrusion in the housing.

    The bendix does have a washer and spring in the bushing hole in the cover. Use caution removing the cover to ensure you do not lose them.
