    Starter Issue, anybody else?

    I'm wondering if anybody else is running into starter issue. Every time I start my ski, the starter just spins and the solenoid dose not engage the pinion onto the fly wheel. After 3 clicks on the start button it engages and starts right up. It only happens when the ski has been sitting and the engine is cold. I know the problem is the solenoid but the ski is still new. I really donít want to take it in for warranty work during the middle of the season. What Iím really worried about is riding in middle of the SF Bay and the solenoid really dies.

    Yup. Mine spins without solenoid on first time, and cranks on second try. Doesn't do it for rest of day.

    Well I feel better about the situation now since I'm not the only one. I don't mind it doing that but I just hope it dose not leave me stranded in the lake one day.

    My Ultra Lx did it on and off for the 1st 5 hours then it must have broke in cause it has not done it in the last 15 hours of use.

    Seems Kawasaki has a global starter issue, seem rather odd I've only ran into problems like this on 20+ years old cars, and had to take the good old hammer out in the high school parking lot and bang away at the starter. I still remember the girls mocking me telling me what's the hecks wrong with your car. I use to tell them, I'm just giving it some love taps.

    that trick still works wonders on my t.v.'s and cd players. They are like 5 years old so they are antiques.
