    oil warning and a long beep

    while following a friends boat at a safe distance at 50mph, i went to get out of his back wash at wot, i took 2 side waves, 1 to the left and the 2nd to a hard right, ski was in the air about a foot or two,while in the air i get a oil warning and a long beep and ski did not responde any more.
    so i let off the throttle and let it idle, oil light disapeared and ski was working fine, pressed throttle and immidiate response.
    the oil is between the two bends where it should be.

    ski is running fine no oil leaks

    what the hell happened?

    Mine did the same thing once. I just changed the oil/filter anyway and never worried about it again.

    oil beep

    It sounds like two things happened:
    1. The TOPS (Tip Over Protection System) activated - which would disable your engine for a short time
    2. You had momentary loss of oil pressure - this has happened twice on our 'ski (both over a year ago) when we have been "caught out" by a wave and jumped at a particular angle, with a twisting action. Both times no problem and have covered over seventy hours since the last time it happened.
