    How do I start a neglected 1100

    I bought a 1100 Yamaha ski that has been sitting for about a year, it is not locked up.
    The repair shop never looked at it, the owner abandoned it because of no funds to get it fixed.

    I donít know what is wrong with it.
    Could you guys tell me what the proper steps are
    systematically to see if this thing will start.

    I know to clean filter and put new gas, may need to clean carbs, new filter, plugs, etc. I figure I need to check the compression too. I know how to do most of that stuff, but what if it doesnít get spark?
    How does one check the electrical system to find the culprit???

    disconnect your kill switch to verify that it`s not bad, crank it over see if you have spark. open your electrical box check for corrosion on the terminals from water contamination. do a search on here for stator specs and test with a ohm meter. Next is to preferably borrow a known good cdi from a friend {same make and model} and see if that is it.

    60% of the time, it works every time.

    Have you tried to start it yet or are you covering your bases beforehand? May need to pour a small amount of gas into the carbs to get it going. Try the easy stuff first.
