    Starting issues 05 RXP

    I have an 05 RXP 215 that only has 23 hours on it. Recently trying to start it has been worse. Sometimes it clicks and sometimes doesnt even engage the starter. Also sometimes when it turns over i have to give it a little gas to start. That could be since i put the stage 1 in. I have heard this issue could be caused by the solonoid? If so does anyone know the part number as i can't seem to find it in the parts diagram breakdown. thanks.

    Could be as simple as a new battery.

    I don't know about that.
    I bought an 08 RXPX that sat a good while. It was doing the same thing. You hit the button and just hear click. After 10-12 times, it will then fire up. Once you get out and ride a while, sometimes it would go away and act normal, sometimes it will still act up. I put a new battery in it and it still does the same thing.

    U could even have a leaking intercooler. They can leak when they sit for a while.

    What? How do you check the intercooler for leaks? Can you take it off and pressurize?

    yes, take it out, hook up the garden hose to one side, and restrict the other side some, and look nfor water coming out of the core.

    Or u could fill the air side with water, and put some compressed air thru the water passage, while looking for air bubbles in the water

    This is most likely the problem... I've seen this time and time again. In fact, I have about a dozen bad solenoids laying around the shop.

    I had the same problem on my 06 rxp 215. The dealer replaced to solonoid under warranty after the ski had only like 15 hours or so. never had a problem since. I would say start there...also its the cheapest starting point of all the things suggested and the easiest to do.
