    Default 8 Tooth or 9 Tooth Starter?

    Been having a few issues with my starter on my 96 GTX, It will kick in and turn the motor once then drop back and keep spinning (until I let go of the start button), Not sure whether to change the brushes or to buy a new one, but on ebay they have both 8 and 9 tooth starters for the 800 motor? Can I use either one (8 tooth for more torque but slower speed) or must it match the flywheel?

    Cheers
    Marc

    Default Flywheel!....

    It must match the flywheel....and although I've had a post similar to this one, I can't remember which one. Your a premium member, you should be able to find this in the manual. I"m at work right now, but if you have problems finding the info......let me know, and I'll get it for you.......
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.

    I looked in the manual and didn't see the amount of teeth on the starter. I would pull it and check before you buy.

    Default Starter...

    I have a spare starter at home on my workbench for your engine. Tonight, when I get home, I'll count and let you know. I think it's 8, and pretty sure I read it in the manual at some point in time.

    I have just pulled my stater out, it has 9 teeth, which I think could be the wrong stater, which could explain my troubles. On ebay the 9 tooth model is used on the 600cc and 650cc GTX from 92 to 95

    Does anyone have a parts list for the 1996 GTX 800 motor, and what model number starter it should have?

    Cheers
    Marc

    Well it looks like I have the right starter fitted, its a Denso 228000-4560, which is the same as Seadoo part 278-000-577, which is what is shows on the Seadoo website for my 96 GTX, And it has 9 teeth.

    Cheers
