Any one go to start their 1999 sporstman 500 and have the starter behave like the older v-8 motors that were slightly out of time? I recently replaced the starter motor and it turned over fine for a day, now turns approximately 2 full of the starter motor then and stops. Like I said it sound like an old V-8 slightly out of time.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I never had a V-8 that sounds as you describe - I've had starters that needed tapped on with a hammer to get to work - I've has bad solenoids thet would close but not make contact (just try several times and finally get to spin one more time - just gets progressively worse) - I've had starters with burnt winding that would just barely turn the motor and I've had bad Bendix's that would turn the motor about 1/4 turn then release and the starter motor just run until released and tried again - also gets progressively worse.

This is one that would be easier to diagnose with a vid.
