    Post RXT 2009 with engine stalls & tilting effects

    Hello Members,

    I would like to start off by saying that this is a great site with great info, but somehow even in this big forum of good Q&A's I can't find any answer to my recent issues found with my Seadoo.
    Model: 2009 RXT 215 with 30 hours to the clock. Has been properly winterized and 10 hour serviced @ my local Seadoo dealership.

    Issue A: Engine stalls @ lower rpms (30-40 Km/h ~ 21-25Mph)
    When towing wakeboards/tubes etc, the engine simply stalls when riding at the same speed for 30-40 seconds or so. It sort of enters this hick-up mode where you can feel the revs stalls whilst still trying to keep the engine running ending in a total stop. Only way to restart the engine again is to "remove" the lanyard and wait for a minute or two before starting the engine.
    I can still run the ski in idle mode (revs sits nice around the 1700-1800 rpms), and also putting the pedal (finger) to the metal let the ski ride for as long as I choose. Top speed still in the 68+mph range. Occasionally I've tried to have the engine stall in idle just after running at full speed for some time.

    • Brand new battery installed
    • A new TOPS sensor installed
    • New sparks been fitted for the new season.
    • A battery tester says the state is between "good & fair" after a night of charging.
    • Intake/grate and wear-ring do not show signs of debris damage.
    • Have been faced with 1502 Seadoo error codes(TOPS sensor) in a couple of occasions. Have already ordered a new TOPS sensor.

    Issue B: Tilting effect
    When riding the ski with more than one person it feels like the ski becomes rather unstable and do want to tilt left & right in the mid-range mph's. Only way to resolve this is to counter-steer or pick up/drop speed. It's been fitted with the WORX sponsons, but those were also fitted on my previous 3 seater Seadoo ski which did not have this stability issue.
    Maybe this relates to a wrong setting pattern of the sponsons??
    Updated 06/17/2012
    Will try install the original sponsons to check if the instability issues clears out

    Any info/help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS!! have the CanDoo Pro available in case of needed information/guidance etc.

    Have you check the TOPS sensor? Its right on the fusebox. Maybe its just dislodged.

    Yes. Tops sensor has been removed from the side of the MPEM/ECU and turned in all directions (in order to release what appears a little ball/connector inside the sensor) to be refitted again but still resulting in this 1502 error.

    As "summer" Seadoo riding time are closing in rapidly here in Scandinavia I'm still troubled by these issues with my Seadoo.

    @Anyone... Any ideas where to start troubleshoot the motor issue?
