    in water starting issue

    Hey guys im new to seadoo world. purchased my first 97 xp. very fast ski. I noticed last week that out of the water the ski starts right up no problem. When I put it in the water it takes 3-5 tries for it to start. I replaced spark plugs but its still doing this. Any help would be awsome, thanks.

    Is it hard to crank or it takes to much time to start? Check your grounds. Is the battery fully charged?

    Like it stalls and then turns? Grounds can get corrosion inside (happen to me once) and create high resistance. Been on the water requires more power to spin the engine. Also just to be sure check the fuel filter for any residues inside than can cause the carbs not geting enough fuel and need to be cleaned.
