    Strange problem with my X2

    Hi everyone,
    I took my 87 X2 out today for probably the last time this season, The ski ran great. I had so much fun. The only thing is that it died twice on me while I was running full speed. I could feel it start to bog down. I backed off on the the throttle but it lost power and died. Then it took about 5 min before it would start up. Once it started up i took it back to shore, and let the ski sit for about 15 min. Took it back out and ran great. I ran the ski off and on for 3 hours. I noticed that the two times it died out on me were extended runs.

    Anyone have any clue what that could be, or what to check.

    What do you mean by stuck a piston? If you mean that I might have seized the motor or damaged a piston in anyway. I dont think that is the case because after a few minutes it will start up and run great again. As is, after it started back up, it ran great and and I did a few top speed runs. I just randomly stops running now and then, but will start back up and run fine again.

    Well, don't pull the head, but at least do a compression test.

    compression test resulted in 130 in each hole.

    sounds kinda like a 4/5 lean seize you are running at or near wot it stumbles a tad so ya let off the trottle and it just dies? turning 6550-7500 rpms a bit lean and then chopping the throttle can cause an acute VERY lean condtion. a little peak down the plug hole at the wash may shed on to your problem,
