    Attached are the pictures. These are of the spare CDI I have which I'm going to swap over.

    The box that says "Nippondenso" is the one you need to change...in pic #1

    The pic #2 is the vts module & has nothing to do with running.

    Check the ground cable connection at the motor. if the motor was painted after rebuild it could have a bad connection. Does it have the stainless star washer?
    A leak in the fuel system can affect the fuel delivery. Also do not use a aftermarket fuel filter if installed incorrectly they can introduce constant air into the fuel stream and give you intermittent issues.

    When running you should have 13-14 volts across the battery if the charging system is working --this goes for almost any vehicle electrical system.

    Why would you electrical system go bad after rebuild? Something that was done or messed with is not right during/after rebuild.

    I think it's always been bad but there were issues with the carbs that were also present so the electrical system issues were masked. Now that I've got the carb issues sorted out I was able to see the electrical issues. I've swapped the ignition module per GOG's recommendation and it seems to be okay. I ran it on the trailer with a dead battery after jumping it and it ran without any issue. I'm taking it out this afternoon to ensure I've finally put the issues to bed.

    This is why the first one was dead...DO NOT ever jumpstart a Seadoo. Bad things happen.

    Sorry I should clarify. I have a spare battery that I connect with a set of jumper cables. I've never jumped it from a running vehicle. I've read through this forum from previous posters and wasn't going to make that mistake. I do appreciate the warning though.

    The previous owner said it had taken on water and when I opened the CDI box it was filled at least halfway with water which may or may not had something to do with the ignition module being faulty.
