    Same as the set up in your 1100 ZXi,Pull the stator,stator housing,take off the nut and washer holding the mag/flywheel on,Use a puller to take off the mag/flywheel,take out the idler gear,replace it and reassemble in reverse of disassembly.You may have to slide your gas tank forward for room to work.

    This is the short version hitting the major points,im assuming you have basic knowledge of working on a PWC.

    maybe a bit late to the party, but for the reference for future inquires....

    one small problem...

    on quite a few tigersharks those boneheads built a motor mount pan that seriously obstructs the stator cover. a $1000 dealer quote makes me think that your shark is one of those models
