    2001 gp1200 problem with the shaft

    hello, got the gp1200 for a cheap price and not too familiar with these 2 stroke.

    so this is what happen:> after riding all day at the beach. getting to the ramp the ski stop at 0 mph and a "eeeeeeee" sound coming from the motor. rpm would go up by its self slowly but still going 0 mph. at forst i thought it was the motor but checked the motor and everthing looked good. i guess it was the prop or the other end of the shaft

    the next day i took out the pump with the shaft. after that i started the ski with out the shaft on and sounds perfect. so am pretty sure its that.

    what steps do i need to do?
    take out the piece that the shaft connects to.and for that it seems i need to take out the motor?

    My dad is bitxhing at me saying i broke the ski when i know this could have happen to anyone!!
    need to get thyis fixed hopefully by the weekend.

    the shaft looks a little worned out but not to bad. just really dirty between the spline which am not sure if its metal or dirt.
    might be the intermediate shaft that might be mest up. haven't checked that becaouse it's still on the ski.

    just need someone to point me in the right deriction or if this has happen to anyone else?

    The shaft goes into an intermediate shaft, that is coupled to the engine. If the splines are stripped, I would recommend replacing them both.

    ok so tonight i will take out the intermediate shaft to check it out, do i need to take out the motor for that? or just move the motor toward the gas tank enough to take out the intermediate shaft?

    if the splines are bad when i check it... i got my eye on a used 2006 1300 intermediate shaft that should work ok:

    my advice, replace both. you install a new intermediate shaft and reuse that drive shaft,its not going to last one year,you'll see.
    that's one part i always replace in a pair.

    Don't forget to grease the intermediate shaft bearings (where it passes through the hull) while you're in there.

    yea i know ill make sure i grease everything up when i put it back together.

    my question is still: do i need to move the motor forward or take it out in order to take out the mid shaft?
