    you mean a 97 xp???
    the 98 was a 951

    check your battery, most likely is weak, I'd recommend going with a AGM battery they will last longer, and take a more beating from the bouncing around.


    you could have something dragging your engine, such as bad pump bearings.

    yes its a 97 800 so i replace all the fuel line clean all the carb change the spark plug wire and plug ,found the end of the rave valve broke,i change it ,now a lot better ,a can used it but still very difficult to start ,if it stay on the water for a night it will just start before the battery die.
