Engine stop question
If your cruising along on a 750 slt and you touch the start botton. Could or would that stop or stall the enigine? or would it PHRRINGGGGGGGGGGG on the flywheel like a car?

I've accidentally done that before , I didn't hear any gear grinding, but it didn't stop the engine either.

Pressing the Start button while riding won't do the Bendix any favors, but it should survive.
Another member on here recently had the Bendix get stuck in the 'flywheel engaged' position, thereby permanently connecting the starter motor to the flywheel.
Engine started normally, but he had trouble getting over about 6,000RPM
After a few minutes of riding, the bearings in the brand new starter motor seized up

The reason I asked is- when riding with my lil pup here, ,,At the end of this video, she did something to the ski turn it off I think. It started right back up but,,,, I just figured she hit the start switch and killed the motor. You can see in the vid if you watch close, and can see the lanyard stilll attached to the auto-kill switch too as we come to a stop. turn the volume down on the vid. the wind is loud.http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...deoID=63681237

I really don't think the dog hitting the start switch, would have shut down the engine.
Looks like you have your own private lake. Were you the only one out there?
FYI... I read in the forums that if you hit edit just after you post the video, then save without having to do anything else, the 2nd video will be removed. Works with you tube vids.

Hmm. there was 2 or three pontoon boats cruising around. The air boats races were going on the other side of the lake. So no public launch. But I knew a private launch there so I got on anyways! heheehee. The lake was mine!
The vid is from my space. will that still work for the vids?

What was the message on the MFD that made the light blink?
A piston seizure can do that. Perform a compressoion test to make sure all is good.
Wouldn't hurt to take a look at the cyl walls through the plug hole real quick either.

the light was low fuel level. although its fuel. the oil light should be coming on also. i deleted it. but havent seen that yet. Ill check the compression and see if i can get a eye down there to see what things look like in there. thx xlnt89

so you are sure you did not starve it for fuel for just a moment?
The SLT has a seperate start /stop switch??
My Virage is same button, I could see that killing it.
it runs fine after starting back up??
