    Advent problems

    Anyone have problems with starting or stopping the engine? It only happens
    randomly. Couple times the starter engaged and would not stop until I ripped
    the terminal off the battery.

    Replaced start stop switch and checked all conections.

    Problem occurred right after installing the Advent.

    I Like the performance gain but can not risk this happening again.

    Boat wouldn't start at FRS for the bouy race and had to run wife's XPL.

    Thanks in advance,
    Duke

    I had a similar problem. I could not shut off my ski with lanyard or stop button. I have had a lot of problems with my Advent

    Hello Duke, It also could be a starter solenoid sticking.

    Duke,

    I had the same problem with my triple pipe. Untill I found that the cable that went to the starter was rusted out at where it bolted to the starter. Grounded it to a motor mount and have not a problem since.

    Btw, you hauled ass on the course.

    Sometimes when I hit the starter button I get nothing, nada, zilch. The ski has also been shutting off for no reason randomly. NOt sure if I can attribute this to the Advent yet as I havn't had a chance to change out to my stock cdi as of yet but it all started after I put in the Advent. Have to say that adding the Advent is like hookin up a blower to a 4 stroke though, the thing hauls ass!

    Replaced the solenoid as well. Will check starter in morning. It happened
    right after the install of the Advent with no problems in the 220 hrs so far.

    Very frustrating when it screws up because you want to faster and the
    family just wants to ride.
