    Is that five minutes in the water at speed, or on the trailer, idling?

    Any messages or red lamp on the display?

    Does it start right up again, or what?

    Might need to contact Randy at Watcon, or Jay at Sharp's Marine.

    Did your friend buy this machine, or is it still in the seller's hands?

    he bought it ..... so we tried to remove the gas tank and i thold him to pull the pump out of the tank and crank it to see if the pump works (we also removed the fuel supply lines) as soon as we cranked it guess what the bastard ski started and ran tell it was out of fuel. so i think it might be getting to much fuel what do you think?

    I think you need to do some reading up on how these engines work, and how to diagnose them.

    The Weber engine is highly computer controlled, and there are a bunch of inter-linked systems involved.

    Lots of sensors to check.
