    What to check after tuning over 300x

    Hi

    A friend has a brand new 2012 Kawasaki Ultra 300x with 1 hour on it and turned it over upside down whilst on the water today. We rolled the pwc back over the correct way and it restarted after about 1 minute, at first it wouldn't turn over and then after pushing the key back in it started. The engine hesitated for about 10 seconds and then went on its way as per normal. It took about 1 hour to get the jetski back to the boat ramp and all seemed to be going ok.

    Is their anything that should be checked after turning over a pwc as has happened above?

    regards,

    Hi

    2 people easily rolled it back over, perhaps 1 could have done it but their was other people in the water when it happened so they automatically helped.

    The pwc was at idle and was hit by a wave side on that made it roll over. The owner of this pwc has had pwc's since 1998 and has never rolled one before!

    cant understand how riding a ski hard has anything to do with turning one upside down. i would think the opposite more so the in-experienced seem to turn them over.

    I actually find a hard ocean ride in rough water is harder on my body then I usually got from a good session on my ktm 300 exc on a enduro track, bikes have the joys of suspension.......

    That must be my problem to much ballast lol

    Just finished my first Kawa 250x rebuild. Got to go see the next 250x this week end apparently also rolled over in the surf. I find it difficult to understand how these big machines get rolled over,they are so wide compared to my rxp.
