    1996 Polaris 1050 won't start please help

    It used to run fine but then one day I went to start it and something is just turning like it may be the starter turning but not engaging the motor. I'm not sure I have replaced the battery twice still no luck, even took to the lake thinking it may need water to start but still the same thing. If anybody could help I would really appreciate it.

    if the starter is spinning then the bendix is bad

    What is the bendix and how do I go about replacing it.

    The bendix is the thing at the end of the starter and engages the starter gear to the flywheel

    Ah ok I would need to replace the starter then right.

    No, you would need to replace the bendix. It's inside the magneto cover. It links the stater to the flywheel when you push the start button.

    Yes. Please get yourself a manual to get familiar with the engine prior to disassembly.
