    xl700 compression test

    how can I do a compression test if I cant start the ski. I get a winding noise like the bendix is not engaging.

    You dont start the ski to do a compression test but if the starter isnt turning the engine over then you need to address that issue first.

    you have to remove the flywheel to replace the Bendix on those? On mine I think (thought) that I only had to take off the cover.
