    Whats involved with replacing the bendix on gp1200r

    I'm pretty sure I have a bad starter bendix on my GP1200R. I was curious as to what is involved with replacing it. I really loath working on this ski I mean I have to remove half the exhaust just to adjust the carbs.

    So does anyone have a step by step on replacing the Bendix before I start at it?

    You need to remove the front stator cover and then you can get to it. Its not much fun. first thing I ever had to do on my ski.

    I'm in Fort Walton, FL. I know I can do it I was just curious how involved it is. On my 98 GP1200 I can pretty much reach around and get to anything but the GPR is really cramped. Seems like I will have to remove alot of the pipe probably just to get at the stator cover. Haven't really looked yet. Anyway anyone want a GPR? I think I may just sell it and keep the old GP its so much easier to work on.

    Once the exhaust is completely out including the u-pipe there is room to work. Its not alot but you can do it with the motor still in the ski.

    Problem is that with the loctite they use on those bolts they're a bitch to get out.

    I use this torch to eat the bolts up just enough to get the loctite to loosen up. Usually about 10-15 seconds is good enough
