04 Seadoo RXP Clicks when trying to start??
I recently purchased a 04 seadoo rxp the guy said he took it out, flushed it out then put it in his shed and a month later he tried to start it and it wouldnt start so he was just getting rid of it. I took it home and tinkered with it but still cant seem to figure our what the problem is. Here is a youtube video I made of the problem maybe somebody can help me cause I would greatly appreciate it.
Here is the video

Take the plugs out and see if it turns over.

haha yea i tried to take them out but it does the same thing. The plugs are the black things on top of the engine right? because ive never seen plugs that look like that lol

The three black things on top of the engine are the coils. Unplug the wires from each while keeping the orange gasket and not dropping it. Then pull up and twist a little on the coils to get them out. It might take some muscle. Then you will see the plugs. Check this out:

I just charged the battery all night and what do you mean by stuffed starter motor?

yea I wouldnt think it would be the solenoid because when I bridged the 2 terminals it still does the same thing. It almost sounds like something is preventing the engine from turning but I dont know

I know that sound. Its locked up! Pull the intake tube off the front of the super charger and see if there is any back and forthe play in the sc wheel. It should move a degree or two in each direction. If not the sc is locked. If the sc is not locked then its an internal engine problem causing it to lock. Also do as mentioned above and pull hte spark plugs and inspect them for damage. Oh, and quit trying to start it or you will be needing a starter also,
