    300x starter motor

    Has anyone else had problems with starter engaging ?
    only at 20hrs can hear it turning but its not cranking the engine ,
    was looking at the manual says it could be reduction gears in starter or
    vehicle down sensor(dfi) coming off..... (where is this?) just wanna see if it's an easy fix
    before having to take it in under warranty
    thanks

    dunno in the troubleshoot section it is listed as a possible cause
    if starter turns but engine does not turn over.

    Just wondered if it could be something else , guess i will give dealer a call tomorrow :-/

    seriously you could try turning the drive shaft a little by hand then tap the starter gently with a hammer it might free up it might not..

    I have heard of a couple bad Bendix through my dealer... strangely enough, all on low hour skis.
