    dead doo - what is this sound?

    Ok, what the hell is wrong with my doo now?

    Got maybe 5 min of riding in then it just died. Dead, barely turn over till I got it home, it will crank but with a really weird sound.




    It was a long paddle back...

    That sounds like teeth shredded on the flywheel. Possibly the flywhel came loose? Pull that front cover so you can see what went wrong.

    I was thinking that, but the impeller is turning over and if the flywheel is shredded shouldn't the engine not crank?

    bendix is bad or perhaps needs a good lube job so the gear comes out when it spins. I can see you are only getting minimal flywheel engagement

    How can you tell? Ill pull the cover again & see what I can. The engine seems to be turning over fine, the output shaft is turning.
    I tried cranking it with the plugs out by hand, I think I was getting a "tick" when turning over.

    I'll try videoing the thing turning over.

    A bit out of focus but I can see the gear engaging & disengaging - at least enough to start it, no?.

    Bang on nmpeter, a little grease on the shaft makes all the difference - sound wise.
    Its not starting but I may have soaked the plugs, Ill get some new ones this week.
