    There is currently a similar thread on this same subject. There are two siphons that run whenever the jet pump is pumping water. I would check the screens on the end of the siphons as well as put some compressed air thru the lines to check for clogs.

    Even with an electric bilge pump, it would take some time to remove water from a rollover. I would try to avoid rolling a ski over...very good chance of damaging the engine.

    There is no electric pump in a SL 750, unless it was added by someone. I would check the hood seal and the seal around the storage bucket and find out why the water is getting in the ski to begin with. The siphon bilge system should more than take care of any normal water entry into the hull.

    Also check where it shoots out the back. I've had to drill crap out of those on a couple of skis.

    Where the water discharges out the back. There are two rubber hoses with zip ties on them that come from the inside of the hull and connect to two metal tubes that shoot out the pump nozzle.
