    Starter bendix or idler gear anyone take apart before?

    My starter bendix does not spin very smooth just curious if anyone has ever taken it apart and re greased it ?

    i tried... didn't work out too well. better to get a high quality replacement. its hard to remove, you only want to do it once.

    what ski/motor

    It's a 98 GSX LTD this one spins but you can feel some sports that feel dry. I took the top c clip off and I'm thinking you press the whole shaft out from the back and it comes apart ? I'm building the motor and don't want to wait another week for parts .

    if all you want to do is grease it inside, they make a grease gun needle that should slip inside so you can put grease in. other than that, i was never successful at repairing, mine,there are springs and pieces that popped out

    I took 2 apart and made one good one before. The spring and one flyweight broke inside the one I had. Rub everything down with steel wool or a wire brush, clean, grease, re-assemble. Piece of cake.
