    starter question on a 98 gp 800

    last season the ski started fine every time and no idication of any problem with the starter then out of nowhere i hit the start button all i hear is what apperas to be the starter spinning but not cranking. im not familiar with this starter is it the starter or "bendix" if its a bendix what do i have to do pull out the motor and break it down? i dont quiet recall the starter when i rebuilt the motor "15 hours" ago

    also who wants to sell me parts to fix it?

    Sounds like a classic bendix failure.

    Remove the front 2 motor mount bolts,then support the motor with a block and remove the front mag cover.
