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.

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.

my ski ran fine also after with no ill affects to the dock about 5 min away and when i got home and recheked inside the hull and it seemed fine no oil leak.
and i even ran it on the garden hose.
thanks for the resposes guys
