Ok so this has been a ongoing journey. I bought a VXR a year ago and have always had huge problems with the starter. It came with a broken oem starter which had seized bolts which I had to drill out. After doing that I put a china starter in it. This starter went for one ride and blew up. Long story short I went through that process about 5 times and each starter seized in one to two rides. So I deiced maybe somehow the bendix was bad so I replaced it to. No help there. So I came here and asked what I should do, everyone said the oem starter was the only good starter you could get and the rest are just POS. So I bought a used oem starter on eBay. And guess what, it made it three rides. I have absolutely no idea what the problem is, it's almost as if this ski is cursed and will break any starter I put in it.
