    98 gsx shuts down

    Problem is the ski will not stay running more than 5 seconds, and if you give it gas the ski shuts down. I have found a piece of metal on the magneto. Can someone take a look and let me know if it looks like the keystock. If it is, could the reason the ski shuts down be directly related to the timing?

    Looks like a tooth off the Mag. Flywheel to me.

    It may have taken out your Ignition Inductive Sensor. Damaged sensor = way off timing spark / or no spark at all.

    It's probably shutting down because metal fragements are shorting out stator and blowing the 15amp fuse. Been there done that. In my case it was metal shavings that collect on stator and a good vacuum job was all that it needed.

    There is an ohm test in the service manual to test stator. Changing out the bendex may require pulling flywheel but do check service manual on that.

    Blow both the cavity and cover with air.

    Click on parts to the left and find out for yourself.
