    96 seadoo gtx 787 hard to start IN water

    I have a 96 787. Out of the water it will start right up no issues. But the moment i put it in the water, it will crank and crank and the only way i can get it to fire is to quickly keep blipping the throttle. Then it will finally start but run like crap till u rip on it. After that it will seem to start somewhat decent the rest of the day, but still takes some throttling

    Sounds like it wants new needles n seats. Better do some new OEM kits while your in there.

    Also hard starts in the water can be low compression

    And of course on the rotax it could also be excessive rotary clearance.
