    95 Waveventure 700 Starter Question

    Hi all, I just picked up a 95 Waveventure 700 yesterday. But I don't know much about this ski. I put a battery in it and hit the starter button, I can hear the relay inside the "blackbox" click and that is it. The starter doesn't engage, I removed the plugs and spun the coupler by hand so I don't think the motor is seized. So my next step would be to test for voltage at the starter and there is my question, how?

    My guess is I will have to remove the muffler to gain access, but is there a way to check voltage or even jump the starter just to see if it will engage?

    Thanks in advance,

    I am having the same issue with mine now. Was is the starter or the relay?

    I just replaced the starter in my 94 raider this winter so I know what you're going through. I just took off the exhaust manifold and unbolted the starter, then you can take it to almost any auto store and have them bench test it. Mine didn't do a thing so it was dead. Not sure if this helps but I think that either way you're stuck taking off the exhaust manifold.

    you can get the starter off by reaching under the pipe. get a test light touch the stud on the starter hit the start sw. if the light lights sol. and wires are good ck. for loose conntion. you can run a wire down to the stud on the starter and to the batt. if it cranks starter is good.
