    Angry All I get is a loud click

    I have a 2002 Yamaha XLT800 that has had the oil conversion done. I have had it out regularly this summer. This afternoon, my brother rode it, my dad rode it, I rode my daughter and then it was my turn. I push it to it's limits. I bring it completely out of the water, dig the nose under, etc. I was leaning (pulling) it hard to one side with my knee in the floorboard. I fell off, but the ski stayed up. I climbed back on and all I got was a loud click when I hit the starter. The only thing I found out of place was the intake cover was off. We ended up towing it back in. Any suggestions???

    You knocked something loose. Check connections electrical and mechanical. feel around for something loose or visibly out of place. Maybe even pull the plugs and see if it turns over.

    I put a screw driver across the starter relay contacts and it made the same click (knock).
    I opened up the intake grill on the bottom of the ski to get to the impeller shaft. It will rotate one revolution and stop and back the other way and stop like it is hitting something. If I turn the shaft as far as it can go in the wrong direction and hit the starter, it will spin one revolution till it "hits".

    pull the plugs and see what they look like. See if after you pull the plugs it will turn.

    Well I found the problem. The front power valve disintegrated into little pieces and got in the way of the piston. I have attached some pictures. The guy helping me who knows much more than me is telling me that we may be able to file the edge of the piston down a little and not have to replace it. I made a newbie mistake. As I was pulling the power valve out, I dropped the pin at the top of the valve down into the "water slot" on the cylinder. It is the hole in the upper right of the attached picture. How do I get it out? Where is the best price on a new power valve?

    well since nobody has answered, I'll take a shot...I'm thinking to file the edge of the piston you'll have to pull the jug, when you do, you'll be able to rattle out your pin!
    ETA, maybe your not pulling jug, I'm not sure if that pin is stainless but if it isn't, maybe you could dangle a small magnet, since water jacket is aluminum, i'm thinking you'd be able to get "in there"
