    2010 RXPX ran fine off the trailer, then no go.

    Posting this question for a friend. Yesterday we launched as normal. He was on his ski, backed him in, started right up, backed off, and tied it to the dock. About 10 minutes later, we went to leave after loading a friends boat, and it wouldn't start. It turns over fine, but just won't fire. So what should we be looking for? Bad plugs? Bad coils? Bad Injectors? Clogged fuel filter? Posting here so I can have a heads up when I take a look at it later tonight. Just wondering if there is something really simple I could check before everything else.

    Thanks in advance!

    Did your Friend by chance touch the throttle while starting the second time (it was a hard to break carburetor habit for me)?

    With a warm engine putting the ski into the water immersion mode (ignition shuts down on starting with slightest throttle pull) was enough to flood my motor, had to pull the plugs dry them out, clean some of the soft (insulating) soot from tip, it is worth a try to check the simple stuff first (especially on a newer ski)

    I would try plugs like ticat suggested.
    Had the ski been running fine before this?

    Ski had zero problems before this. Just blows my mind that it could run perfectly around the dock for a minute and then just stop.

    Maybe fuel pump took a poop.

    Can you wake the ski up and check for any codes?
