    1999 GSX RFI binding up when cranking over

    Anyone have this problem before? Bought the ski with a frozen engine turns out the starter was just locked up to the flywheel. Took it off and replace the starter the engine will turn over freely if the plugs are out but if the plugs are in it will barely turn over and occasionally completely lock up. Then I have to turn the drive shaft over with a set of vice grips at which point the starter won't disengage from the flywheel. I tried this with two different starters and the problem is identical with both. Is there some sort of issue where the flywheel could be causing trouble with a starter Bendix?
    How many gerbils could a gerbil jammer jam if a gerbil jammer could jam gerbils?

    The starter gear maybe worn out or shifted on the flywheel.

    I have a couple RFI flywheels if you wanna try one.
