Default starter gone bad?

my 440 wants to fire but here's the problem. without the plugs motor spins like a top no problem, gas goes threw the motor and works just fine. But when i install the plugs and wires the motor wont hardly spin at all just barely turns over 7 or 8 times before the wires start getting hot and seems like the battery dies.

Now I have 1 not even yr old battery and one brand new battery that I have tried using in the ski and both do the same thing. So would this mean that my starter just doesn't have the power anymore or is there another underlying issue that I am overlooking?

Sean its not the pruple 550 that is back up and going no issues. its the white 440.

it has a brand new head gasket cant tell you but putting my finger over the hole and keeping it down is hard. i did try just having one plug in and turning over the motor and when the cylinder went up for compresion on the plug side it seemed to struggle

Can you wrap a rope around the crankshaft/PTO at all? You could try starting it by hand.

Prolly. i could try that. i was considering hot wiring the starter so i could do it manually and bypass the cdi box to see if its that or maybe the stator? but i have spark

How about the bendix? The starter solenoid? You could just have a bad starter.

If you have access to the PTO try turning it over by hand with plugs out. If it turns completely over freely you know that the engine is not the problem. After that jump the starter with a car battery, and jumper cables straight to the starter. Put the plugs back in, and you might want to remove the stock starter wires from the starter before jumping it to avoid a feedback issue. If it cranks good you have a power supply, or ground problem. If it doesn't crank good the starter is bad. My guess is the starter is bad.

hot wires mean lots of amps, draining a battery real fast mean the motor part of the starter is usually bad.

This starter thats on it is perfect. it came off a working ski that was stock had no issues. and old starter just tested was just fine. now the things that were said they all on that box near the primer? cuz im about to take that out tonight might swap in the box from my 550 to see if it starts with that one.

oh and me and sean took a look at it this weekend and we found out the motor is built pretty high and has aftermarget pump housing so if i can get her running this sucker should fly prolly faster than both are 550s

You need an ohm tester and need to find your specs.
