    starting issue on ultra250x 07'

    last time i was out my exhaust hose came off and i put here half way under water. i was able to clear the water out and run it for some time with no problems. so today when i took the ultra out. i was riding for about 10 minutes and it started to drop rpm/s and die out and then it would not restart. i got a new battery and re-tried still nothing. with the plugs out, it cranks over fine. but when i put the plugs back in. it has trouble trying to turn over. i removed the belt and checked the supercharger, turning fine along with the idler pulley. when i crank it the driveshaft turns. i have fuel at the rail. (i don't know what the pressure, gauge at work can't get till monday) but i get fuel with key on and the pump runs.

    a tip leave the belt cover off sounds like two problems but could just be s/c orientated as it lost rpm and died, and you say it dont crank, how long was the water in the hull between rides, i would check all electrical connections for corrosion and startermotor, and then i would remove the belt and spin the pulleys or vise versa.

    put in new plugs. make shure no water is in oil. check belt tension with proper tool.

    belt cover is removed. i did turn the charger and pulleys both rotate with ease. as for the water being in the hull maybe a hour at tops. all was torn apart before corrosion and or rust could set in. had to pull intercooler and all of that out on lake so i could re-install exhaust hose so i could get the ultra back on the trailer. oil was changed and new plugs where put in. i just notcied this found when i crank the motor over the driveshaft turns. but when i try to turn it by hand(with adjustable wrench on shaft) it won't budge with the plugs out. shouldn't this turn freely.

    why does everyone say put in new plugs its not a twostroke lawn mower, sounds like your pump has shit to me any scraping sounds? or through hull bearing

    pulled the pump. pump def needs some re-working but that is not my problem. i bumped it over with the pump and impeller removed still not cranking right. im wondering if my starter took a shit. it was under water. i can see it being able to supply enough torque possibly with out plugs out ,but when the plugs are in not. that or i have a internal engine problem
