Starting problem on 2002 Yamaha Wave Runner FX140

I have a 2002 FX140 and the problem occurs when I have stopped and started the engine 6 or so times after a decent warm up. I use the wave runner for fishing so move around a fair bit.The engine turns over as normal but just wont fire, it almost seems like it is flooded and I have had to use engine start...which I am lucky I carry with me, to spray into the intakes to get it going again. What can be causing this?

SOURCE: 1200 yamaha wave runner exhaust light keeps coming

The exhaust light must be blinking. However, running or operating the engine after the warnings had been activated, the light will continuously on. In this case, cool down the engine b stopping it. otherwise, it may result to a serious damage to the engine.

2004 waverunner fx cruiser, ran great last time out. Now hard to start and wont run on high speed. Nothing over 6 mph.

How old is the fuel? Ethanol causes major problems if left too long. You may need to empty the fuel and clean out the fuel system. Try changing the fuel filter and adding some seafoam to the fuel and running seafoam thru the fuel system. Hopoe this helps.

Dies when I first start have to restart a few times and dies at stop light unless it gets a little gas

This is usually a problem caused by a bad water temperature sensor. There are usually 2 sensors with one working the temperature gauge and the second working engine controls.

The "cold start" sequence is similar to a choke in old cars. It needs the signal from the water sensor to trigger the cold start sequence. The cold start sequence enriches the fuel charge, adjusts timing, and increases idle speed until the engine gets a little warm.

Now if stalling when warm, you have other issues. Manifold runners are a problem on some engines.

1999 Yamaha wave runner 1200 XL won't start

Check to see if you get power to the starter when you try and start it. If you do, they you may have a bad starter. If not then you may have a bad switch or even blown fuse.

Yamaha wave runner check engine light comes one and will not run properly.

Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only
genuine items as replacement as non-genuine are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. This results in the fault codes not cancelling out.

no idea on price but this sort of thing is used in salt water so although a new set of rings and a quick hone of the bore will sort it and maybe a new crank bearing as its obvious someone didnt put oil in with the petrol but the problem i have had with a lot of these fun machines is that getting the engine apart after salt water use is ?well lets just say difficult
