I got the 15f to start after replacing he battery and fuel pump and fresh fuel. So, it's kind of hard to start, the starter draws the battery down from 12.5 to 8.5 when trying to start and the cables going to the starter get hot. Also it seems the starter will turn the engine over a turn or two and stop. It takes about 4 or 5 times of pushing the start button to get it to fire up. Once running it runs great for about 5-7 minutes and then dies and the battery is completely dead. So I put it back on the charger and same thing. I took it out on the water the other day and it started so I headed out a little ways and about 7 minutes into the ride it died an the battery was dead again. So, I think the stator is bad and needs replaced from what I have read, I was hoping it was the regulator or something easy that I could rob off the other ski, but just from what I have read it's probably the stator. What do you guys think? What do you guys think would be the "easiest" way to change it out? Thanks in advance for any help!!hoping to get it on the water again before the end of the season.
