    What type of tigershark is it?

    Look in the pump from back and from under. See if there is anything in it.

    Take the plugs out and try to turn it by hand from the back of the engine. you will probably have to take off the cover to the engine coupler.

    take your spark plugs out and see if it will turn over. If so, your battery doesn't have a good charge.

    look in your electrical box for starter relay (solenoid) and put a screwdriver between the 2 posts. If it turns over, you need a new one. If it does nothing then its good and will have to look somewhere else. Also clean and tighten your battery, starter and ground cables.

    Can you turn it by hand with the plugs out. It is easier.

    Also there may be a notch in the driveshaft somewhere that will fit a 17mm wrench. This may help to turn it.

    I can not turn with plugs in or out I can rock it 1mm or less with a wrag around shaft with monkey wrench. We are just going to the lake now with the 89 Kawi so the kid can ride and I'll wrench I will try the solenoid idea
    Thank You everyone for your help
    I will tell you more later today
    I had thought the starter might be stuck out against the fly wheel?
    Thanks agian

    Sounds to me that something is broken and stopping your engine from turning. I had a buddy that had the stator parts come apart and bind up the flywheel. Big mess.
