VX1100 jet ski issue

Hello all.....

I have a Yamaha XL1200 which I love but have also just purchased a second Yamaha FX160HO, or I think its called the VX1100 in the USA, It has the MR1 engine fitted.

I took the FX/VX1100 out onto the river yesterday and had a great time for a few hours. We stopped and had lunch then when I jumped back on the Ski just turned over very quickly and would not start. Today I stripped it down and have found the Starter clutch assembly bearing is spinning both ways hence why the starter, although turning could not start the ski. Has anyone ever come across this before on one of these engines?
