    GPR1200 Non start problem

    Hey guys a friend of mine has the above ski but is having trouble starting it.
    She cranks over with a spark but does not seem to be getting fuel (Plugs aint wet nor smell of fuel) he tryed with a tiny bit of fuel down the head just to see if she poped but she just didnt want to know!

    Fuses - good
    Oil - good
    Plugs - new
    fuel - new
    sprayed easy start down intake - not even a breath!

    Any help would be great

    Check fuel filter, water trap, flapper valve on the pickup in the tank. Last time carbs were rebuilt? The fuel pumps are "in" the carbs.

    Pop the hood and trace the fuel line that goes to the carbs. There is a clearish/whitish bowl hanging underneath, with a screw knob on the bottom. Unscrew it to see if any water comes out.

    Shouldn't he check the battery too, boogie?

    I thought PWC's won't start unless the battery is supplying around 12.5v to the starter.
