    97xp stutters when hitting rough water???

    Like the title says, I have a 97XP that runs great never had any problems with it. I took it out on Lake michigan last week and every time I jumped a wave, upon landing the engine had a hesitation in it, it would almost immediatley run fine again until the ski gets jarred again, on calm water there is no hesitation, runs great and has no problems. As soon as I hit a little rough water bam..hesitates, has never quit running just a weird hesitation. Any suggestions? I am leaning towards thinking this is a wiring issue, I hope its not but was hoping someone has run into this before. Thanks!

    loose ground or loose connection at the stator. you may need to replace the ground from the battery to the block all together...they tend to corrrode
