    Battery Indicator flashing on my 150 Ultra

    Hello Everyone, I am new to this site and just recently bought a 2000 Kawasaki 150 Ultra with 120 hours on it, everything is clean motor was well maintain by the owner who was a Jet Ski Mechanic. I recently noticed that when I fire the Ski up the dash flashes a battery light (in the shape of a battery) and im taking the Ski out this weekend and was wondering if this is a problem before I get to the river. I dont want to get out to the river and find that it wont run.

    If it is doing it at idle and at lower RPM's that's OK. My 2000 has done that from the day I bought it off the showroom floor. Now if it does that at highr RMP's then you do have a problem (likely the voltage regulator).

    Yes that is a pretty common issue with the 1200 Kawi's. Have had three and they all did it.

    Does the light flashing indicate the battery is not getting a charge?

    no, doesnt necessarily mean you battery is not charging, just maybe not at the exact rate. I have two Ultras and they both do it after idling for a while back at the dock. Recently, i Didnt go out on the lake for a month and they started right up, no battery problems. It is just not charging at the exact rate that is within tolerance, thus the flashing light. Sometimes it is a stator (ie. alternator) problem...if you are having battery problems (once your sure you dont have a bad battery). Other, most likely, its the voltage regulator (as someone said earlier). The voltage regulator is located in the small enclosed box behind the battery.

    A very common problem !!! Sometimes annoying....
