    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.............

1995 kawasaki 750 jet ski overheats when going fast

Check your plug color. You may be having a high speed mixture problem. Is your ski spitting water out the tiny hole on the side? You should try flushing the engine, you could have a motor full of sand if you beach the craft but do not wash the sand out of the back before starting. Also inspect the engine water tubes for cracks. From the hull to the motor and from the hull to the jet pump.

How to replace seal on a jet ski

The seals in the drive pump can be replaced by taking off the ride plate and pump housing. To replace any other seals (engine or hull) you will have to remove the motor from the hull.

I have a 2001 ultra 130 di jet ski and with two people on it that do not weigh much the jet ski will roll over at idle speed if you are not really carefull. Please help, it is a great jet ski for one...

Many hulls when turned sharply below planing speed will flip when riding two up. When wearing a neoprene suit you need to jump in periodically just to cool off. Make sure you have drained all the compartments in the hull of water every time you take the boat out of the water. I purchased a ski once that would not plane off and had a dry engine compartment. When I pulled the plug at the back several gallons of water came out. It made all the difference in the world losing all the ballast.

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.
