    jump starting my xp

    my batteries are shot.my skis have been wrapped up since sept. we've been having some nice weather and i uncovered them to fire 'em up for a bit. but, both batteries are shot. i had them on a charger but there's no juice in 'em. i dont really want to drop the $ for new ones just yet, so is it safe to jump start from my vehicle? im thinking that i just leave the battery out and connect the jumper cable right to the battery cables on the ski.

    no, not safe. Put a wtb ad on craigslist "looking for good 16cl battery" if you want to be cheap.

    Battery --$70 verses a MPEM if can find one secondhand --$400

    Easy choice really.

    What's the point of starting the ski if you are not going to ride it. If the crank is your concern, poor a little oil down each cylinder (a little) and turn the pto by hand. Union employee who can't buy a battery! You should find another trade!

    jesus christ, buy a fkn battery,
    if you can't afford it, sell the ski, a battery costs approx the same as a weekend's worth of fuel/oil.
