Discussion Starter #1
i just bought a 99 GSX from a guy for $700. its body is in great shape...just the seat is cracked from the sun. however, it won't start. i did some tinkering with it today and i believe the starter is the problem. when i hit the button, all i hear is a tick. took it apart, got the starter out and hooked the power lead to it, and grounded it...and the starter worked when i pushed the button. so, i checked to see if the motor is locked up, and no it isn't. i spun it over with my hand (didn't have the spark plugs in). is it common for the started to not have enough power to turn the motor over when it is going out? if so, can these starters be rebuilt or should i just pop for a new one?

Have you checked to see if it's either the starter solenoid or a battery cable? Could be pretty simple. Usually when the starter works on the bench, it works in the ski.
