in need of help with my gpr
2003 gp1300r stock
i was not having any trouble with the ski until.....
My mother asks to take it out for a spin.. long story short she sinks it.
I do not know how.
I tow it back with the boat and bring it home.
That night a friend and I drain the block and get it running again.
Next day we take it for a quick test spin and couldn’t find any leaks..
But we did have trouble starting it.. We had 2 spray starting fluid in the block.
After I got home I put some mystery oil in the block, gas, and oil and let it sit for a few days.
Today I went to take it out for a full day and had a lot of trouble starting it… needed to spray more starting fluid into it and even then had trouble..
Once it was started it seemed to run strong for about an hour and then the warning light + warning beep came on…
So I killed the engine to let it rest for about a minute and then tried 2 restart it
The ski wouldn’t start no matter how long I waited while I was out on the water..
Good thing I had my friend there to tow me in…
1) Any ideas on how I can get this thing to start up 1 shot like it use to?
2) Any ideas why that warning light came on and it stopped running?
Thanks for your help!

Carbs definately need to be gone though. Simply running fresh gas through them will not get rid of all the water droplets.
How long did you run it (the first time) after you got it running again?
