    charging the battery would be the place to start, from there if you have no luck turning it over, pull the spark plugs and try again. If it still wont spin over pull the jetpump and see if it is seized.

    Sc is probably seized. Pull the belt off and see if the sc turns as well as check to see if the motor turns over.

    Oh boy ummm sc = supercharger. The belt would be the supercharger belt under the sc belt cover. If not comfortable with mechanics skills I suggest taking it to the dealer.

    Separate problem, change the oil while you have the ski open.
