New to the forum and just recently getting back into watercrafts. A friend of mine just picked up an 05 R12X with 62hrs. Ski is hard to start but does turn over just slower than normal . We have 2 other Honda's as well. This ski turns over much slower than the others with a good battery on it. Voltage drops to 10.89 while cranking. We've swapped batteries and checked all connections except for the ground connection on the engine. . No apparent corrosion anywhere. Ski has an extended warranty thru 2012 so he's dropping it off at the dealer to take a look. I've read on here about the starter relay issues but not the same symptoms. Possibly the starter itself or voltage being received by the starter? Thanks for any insight and great site.
