    rxt won't start

    my uncle wanted me to check on greenhulk and see what you guys think. he has an 06 rxt and it won't start. when you press the start button, the starter will just spin and not engage to crank the motor. is the bendix bad? is this a common problem? if the bendix is the cause, can it be replaced with the motor still in the ski? any input is appreciated, thanks.

    that is very uncommon with these seadoo's for the starter to spin and not engage, i would take the starter off, and see if the bendix cog is still there

    i would start with the battery, take it to parts store and have a load test done on it cause it might show good voltage and have a bad cell... Happened to me on my boat a few times. Never have had an issue with any of my 4tec's starters.

    i'll tell him to pull the starter and check if that gear is still on there.

    I have a 05 RXT and was having the same problem. I thought the sound I was hearing was the starter engaging, but according to my mechanic the sound I was hearing was the fuel system pressurizing. The problem was the starter relay, 45 bucks and four screws later I was up and running. But if you find out it is the bendix, I have one. I beleive the 05 and the 06 should be interchangable. PM me if intersted. Good luck
