    2001 genesis - will not start


    I'm the new owner of a 2001 Genesis (carb). The ski will turn over, but doesn't seem to be getting any spark. It's got a brand new and freshly charged agm batt. A compression test showed 90 on all three cylinders, but that was with a weak batt. I've done a few searches on the site, but am unsure on how to proceed. I'm a newb to pwc, but am somewhat technically inclined.

    125 psi should be a good 1200 engine... but the spark thing is the problem.

    Is it carb'ed, or fuel injected?

    Try holding down the bilge button while cranking - any spark now?
