    Almost fried it today....

    I finally got the pump back together today, and took the ski out to see how it would run with the XO prop, and the R&D grate....

    After putting around for a bit to warm up, I got into it, and it only pulled to about 6500 RPMs, and after about 30 seconds, BOOOOOOOppp it conked out.... Lean seizure... DAMN!

    Got it fired back up... Then I turned the highs out another 1/2 turn.. 7,000 RPM, and no conk out.

    Rode around for a couple of hours, and then the ignition crapped out..... I am thinking this is related to the ground issue I was having the last time out... Like maybe whatever the ground wire is connected to has fried the rest of the way... I will find out this evening as soon as I run some electrical tests....

    Oh yeah, and a best of 55.5 on the GPS today. Yipee.

    Ohmed the Pulser coil thinking that was fried. 508 ohms... Spec is 445.5 to 544.5. Well within spec.

    Tried to start it for the Hell of it, and it fired right up, then crapped out... This happened 5-6 times, now it won't start at all. Fuel can be seen moving through the lines when it is running.

    CDI box perhaps?

    Check your battery terminals and check your start stop switch. Both can yield you probs and are a very easy to check and count out.

    Done, and done... I have an ugly feeling I know what it is. Even though the pulser coil is reading fine, nothing says it hasn't come loose....
