  1. Re: Got a free 95 Waveraider 1100 - never touched a ski before - where should I start

    Just so you know, for ANY 2 stroke......that's a dry start. Next time, supplement the carb cleaner with some WD40 or Liquid wrench. That way you at least have some lube in there for fire off.

    Re: Seadoo motor swap question

    Yes, the 717 will swap right in, no issues. Same exhaust arrangement, same motor mount locations, same driveshaft length.

    Re: 787 starting issues

    +1 with WFO, check cranking battery voltage. The 787 has a DC-CDI which is very susceptible to any type of voltage abnormality.

  11. Re: 2005 VX110 Random cylinder misfire and no power

    Lay plugs WITH coils attached up on the head and check spark. The VX wiring harnesses are crap, I've replaced a few. I've also found bad/broken wiring going to various sensors AND to coils.

    Re: Spark plug issues on a 1997 rotax 787

    My guess on the crap running is because the 787 uses a DC cdi ignition instead of the common AC style cdi. I'm betting that particular plug is causing electrical interference with the cdi. The NGK...

    Re: 1991 Yamaha Waverunner III 650 troubles…

    The Waverunner 3 has the old fiberglass waterbox that is known for causing issues. The baffles can break loose inside and block the exhaust flow. Pull it out and check it.

  23. Re: Got a free 95 Waveraider 1100 - never touched a ski before - where should I start

    Great idea. I use a good blast of liquid wrench down each plug hole but any kind of oil will do. Then crank it over with plugs out and check for spark. If that's good check compression. If that's...

    If the old solenoid shorted on the coil side (small wires) then it's very possible that the ground side is reading power.
