    I have a kawasaki 900 STX jet ski. I replaced the battery and the spark plugs (3 plugs). The engine turns over but it will not crank. Is there anything I am missing?

    Ok , I think I might have some suggestions. In 2-stroke engines there is a CDI electrical device. This device is like other electronics and is very sensitive to voltage/blips in voltage. I know from expierience that these devices can blow a diode or the whole CDI just from a close lighting strike!!!! The only other problem that I could think of is that the fuel/fuel lines might be dirty or filled with old gas. The other thing is that 2-stroke engines are very temprimental when it comes to flooding the engine with too muck gasoline at once. When this happens in a 2-stroke engine the spark plugs become "gummed' (When the 2-stroke oil in the gasoline mix gets all over the plugs drowning the plugs contact with the engine which blocks the spark from happening. If it is a 4-stroke then I would go to a dealer and have them look at it.

    Hopethis helps!!!

I have come across this problem many times first make sure you have a fully charged battery remove plugs and spin engine over with your throttle fully open to clear the cylinder bores of any dirt or old fuel change your fuel as old fuel will loose its octane quality and the 2 stroke mix will seperate from the gas over time change plugs and before you spin engine over place a couple of drops of mixed fuel down each carb and see if it fires up if it does then stops try again you will prob have old oil gummed up in your fuel pump hope this helps.............

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.

1998 kawaski jet ski that boggs down on take off

Sounds like this bike sat for a while. When carburetors sit, the jet's inner diameter shrinks slightly from oxidization/micro-corrosion, and the diameter of the needles that go through them grows for the same reason.

Replace the jets and the needles that go through them.

I had this problem with a Suzuki GS850. When I fixed it, I treated the bike as I had been before I fixed it on the test drive, and almost launched myself off the back of the bike when I first opened the throttle. Careful.

Kawasaki 550sx won't start

souds as if the starter is faulty. Use a volt meter to check voltage at the starter while holding the start button. If you get a battery voltage reading, then the starter is shot.
