I have a 2008 Polaris Sportsman 300.

Today I went to start it, and the engine wouldn't turn-over. The starter spins, but the engine does nothing. I just put a new Solenoid and starter on it, and the starter works fine, it just won't turn the engine. Any Ideas on what I can try? I'm thinking that maybe the starter gear in the engine is worn/broken and the starter doesn't have anything to turn?

Thanks!

Has anybody replaced the starter gear in the motor? How hard of a job is it?

Can it be done without removing the engine? Via access on the the right side?

Thanks!

Sounds like a bendix.. Had same issue with mine.. go to start and it would spin the starter without engaging..
