Stinkin' bleepin' starter
I cant believe I am going to have to pull the motor to fix this damn starter issue. The reasoning from a few other members is that it could be anything from a loose flywheel to bad crank bearings, but before I dig into the motor I'm going to make one last plee for any other ideas to try.
Here is the prob: The starter engages for maybe half a rotation then kicks/spins out. It does this everytime now. I can no longer get the boat to start. Also when all the plugs are removed it turns over without a hitch.
Here is what I have tried:
1. Replaced the starter and bendix gears.
2. Replaced the Battery & Jumped with charger.
3. Replaced the CDI unit.
4. Swapped out the starter solenoid.
5. Swapped out the starter/run switch.
6. Checked for loose connections.
Anyone out there with any new ideas???
thanks for youe help guys

I would pull the front cover and flywheel and see if the ring gear is loose on the flywheel before I pulled the motor. I was looking at some of my stuff last night and picked up a flywheel that the ring gear moves from front to back about .030-.040. I know its not fun pulling the U-pipe and stator cover, but it will be one less thing to do if you have to pull the engine out.

Thanks Jeff......I will do just that when I do dig in, that will be my first step before pulling the engine.

It sounds like the bendix... but you say you already replaced it ?

Yamaha shop installed new bendix and starter. Still kicked out so they tried another pair. Still kicked out so they charged me $400.00 and told me they didnt know what the problem was.
I swapped out the starter switch with the one on my 01' GP800R with the same results.

Maybe take the relay/switch out of the loop by hooking a remote starter button directly to the starter and the pos battery.
Same with the negative cable. You can take jumper cables and hook to the battery neg then ground to the engine.
It is hard to diagnose this stuff over the Internet... I had a negative cable severely corroded into the cable where it connects to the engine cause a similar problem once.
