Would like to try and pin point my problem today with all the advice and support of this forum.
Problem: No warning signs
When you goto start the ski it takes a few times, it starts and instanly dies which it has never done before. When you get it started it sounds a little rough or even sometimes like you can hear a knock sound. When you goto pull the throttle sometimes it does Nothing, no response to pulling the throttle just idles. Sounds like maybe a fuel system or an electrical problem. Looking for some advice on what to check and how to check.

I sure some of the experts out there get tired if giving out all their info. Maybe I should offer something like a $50.00 dollar reward to the first one that pin points my problem?

Compression check, how bad?
#1 = 90
#2 = 110
#3 = 110

50 dolla dolla hmmm times are tuff sooooooo have you: checked the fuel psi? dirty/fouled plugs (its hard to tell they are fouled just change them) the no response when throttle pulled has me stumped. have you checked the cable? how about IC for water leaks? theres a few things to get you going. good luck!

Here are some things that have been done or checked.
1. Pulled all fuel and replaced
2. Changed spark plugs
3. Yes throttle cable is working
4. Pulled off IC hose going to TB just incase it had a leak and still ran the same
5. Swaped out ECU
6. Compression check listed in previous post
7. Ground wires - ok
Coil stick? TB Sensor? Low Compression?

I'm thinking about adding a paypal link on my home page witha $25 charge for telephone consultations as cheesy as that is, it's actually starting to eat into my time and hurting some people as my blanket answer now is no advice and a "you'll have to bring it in, since there are too many things that can make "that" happen without having a look at it."
+1 on plugs, quick as easy fix..I'd also be checking for the engine being a quart or two overfilled. The engine compression ain't good..but that's another issue. Check for a bad ring or two by squirting some fogging oil into thelow cylinder and giving it another go..if it comes up a bit....the news isn't good....if it doesn't..leaky valve ( not great, butthe engine doesn't have to come out to fix that)
Oh yeah...I have a 2008 Yam vx 1100 in the shop that won't go voer 20knts..the guy brought it to his d(st)ealer and they hooked it up to thier computer, said there was nothing wrong with it and charged him $150 for the "diagnostic"..guess who has it now?
and Did I mention he commented that my labor rate was a bit high?

Oil level is good.
How do I check ?
1. Coil Sticks- Have no spare one. Is there a way to check them?
2. Fuel pressure....
4. TB Sensor
Thanks for the advice so far
How bad would it be to run the the ski with the one cylinder @125psi and the others @145psi
