    97 seadoo xp trouble turning over

    I have a 1997 seadoo xp that has a hard time turning over. when i try to start it you just hear a clunking sound from the starter like its engaging and disengaging. I took off the impellor and it looked good. i used a battery pack to try and jump it but it still did the same thing. i took of the pto cover off and turn the shaft so the motor is where the compression is low so the starer has some what of a head start and once it turns over it go's good untill i let the button go and press it again then it go's back to the clunking sound. What could be causing this?
    please help!!!

    bad ground...get a set of jumpers from the batt to the head pipe (open metal like a bolt) if it starts replace the ground. make sure that you have a good fully charged battery. 2 strokes are finicky and need exactly 12.5V
