    1996 xp800 ignition problem

    Watercraft runs on one cylinder most of the time. Replaced coil and didnt fix, stator passed ohms tests, been through carbs, and engine has great compression. Problem is electrical. Has anyone had this kind of trouble with cdi or staror.

    I know a guy that had a similar problem, it ended up being his high tension leads. He cut his leads back and new plug caps, problem solved.

    I have also seen a bad plug do that.
