    '95 Polaris SLT 750, just replaced stator, ran great for 1 hr, now will not start

    I just replaced the stator in a 95 SLT 750 that my parents gave me not running. I took the ski out to a lake and tested it for a good hour with no problems other than a bit of sluggish acceleration. I brought it into the dock and shut it down for about an hour and now it will not fire. I have good spark at the plugs but no fire, any suggestions?

    So it will crank, and you have spark, but the engine does not start - correct?

    Lanyard in place?

    Check compression, just to be sure.

    Dribble a little fuel down the carb throats and see if it will start.

    What is the battery voltage while cranking?

    What other maintenance have you done?
    Carburetor rebuild?

    See my signature links for recommended upgrades and maintenance.

    After reading your literature and web information, which is wonderful, I realized I think it is probably the battery. There is an indicator message on the display that says "lopr", which may be that it needs a new battery. I do not have the test equipment to find out my voltage, but I know the battery is about 5 years old and has been sitting for at least 2 years.

    Part of the deal with any older PWC is having the tools to do basic maintenance and work.

    A half-decent digital multimeter is worth having. It will last for many years, and can be used for testing and repairing electrical house wiring and other stuff, in addition to your watercraft.

    A toolbox with a reasonable array of tools is a good thing to have, even if you don't consider yourself mechanically inclined. Using the wrong tool will always result in a poorer job than having something appropriate.

    Buy tools as you need them or expect to need them. These days tool sets can be had fairly inexpensively. Just don't buy absolute garbage tools
