    Um....yeah. I'd like to know myself how you came to this conclusion. Only way I know that a 2 stroke ski can run without an MPEM is what is called a "run-away." By that I mean the mixture becomes...

    Re: Xp with 787 motor weird spark issue

    In your picture you have the red wire to the voltage regulator marked with tape. Have you tried to disconnect it and then try to start it like I suggested earlier?
