    Starter not staying engaged


    i have a 2006 RXP and it will not start. I removed the valve cover and when I try to start it, it will rotate about 1 revolution and then all I hear is the starter spinning. I assume it is the clutch, but I wanted to be sure before I remove the engine to replace the bendix.

    Any thoughts.

    Usually this is a sign of a weak battery.

    I would try a new high quality battery first.

    and that doesn't mean jump starting it off the nearest car.

    best to get a voltmeter on the battery and report back with standing voltage and cranking voltage

    other details on the ski will be helpful in saving you time and money

    Thanks. I will try a new battery first. The starter appears to keep turning so I assumed it was good.
