    starter question

    I'm changing the starter on a 98 900stx (pain in the ass), and I have a question. Is the starter supposed to kick out and spin, similar to a way a car starter would? I took another starter off of another kawasaki 900 and installed that, but all it does when I hit the start button is spin, not even cranking the motor, like it's not engaging. Is that starter I just installed bad? or could it be something else?

    Probably the bendix seizing up. Your best bet is to pull the mag cover off, you might have to pop the flywheel off, and clean the benix, then let it soak in some ATF for a few minutes.
