    Fx1 won't start. Msd problem?

    About a month ago I had my fx1 out on the lake and when I would give it full throttle it always sounded like the carb was overloading with gas and it just didn't have the pop. A couple weeks go by and when I was riding it just completely turned off. Swam it to shore and now nothing will happen. No clicks, no turning over nothing. Bought a brand new msd ignition and still nothing. Sometimes it sounds like the ground is making a weird noise but everything is cleaned off. Tried jumping the solinoid and still won't turn over. Any thoughts?

    Test your start/stop switch

    unplug your black start stop wire behind carb. then try to start it. just be ready to choke out engine to kill it with a rag or towel(because stop button is disconnected)

    I had a similar problem - parked it, went back to ride 15 minutes later and nothing happened when I pressed the start button. Got the multi-meter to check resistance and worked out the start switch was no longer making contact - pulled the switch apart, a bit of emery tape on the contacts and back on the water within in 10 minutes.

    Tried unplugging the black and white wires. Nothing. Just a weird sizzle noise from the ebox ground

    Sounds like it seized, does the engine turn over by hand?

    Ummmm... grounds that "sizzle" are grounds that don't conduct "shizzle". Remove and clean all power and ground contact points. A little die electric grease never hurts, either.(actually, spray painting battery terminals and ground points does amazing things for longevity) AFTER THEY ARE CLEANED AND CONNECTED!!!!!

    Hahaha by far one of the best things I've read on here. I'll give the grounds a dremal clean. Another thing, does the ebox have to be grounded back to how it sits in the fx1? I have it pulled out sitting ontop of the tray. I can work on my kawis with the ebox out
