    Question

    Out on the ski today and it ran good pulled hard but one slight problem ,when going into a hard turn there was a hesitation I'd say 2000/3000 rpm for about 6-7 seconds then started pulling hard again on straight , it only happend twice after about an hour riding? No pump issues defiantly engine limitation.
    This happend twice apart from that run good and pulling a strong 8460 rpm? Any thoughts on this one ? no fault codes and recent full service water 16c and air temps around 18c at sea level using 98 Ron fuel moderate chop.

    Spark plug fouling out or a coil pack going bad.
    New plugs can foul.

    Thanks I didn't really think of plugs becouse there 2 hrs old but you could be onto something with the coil pack question is wich one would it be or do I change them all to be sure there's 72 hrs on the machine as it stands

    Pull the coil packs and inspect them.
    See if you see and cracks or corrosion.
    To replace them without knowing if that's your issue could be a waist of $$$

    +1 And check just the connection to the top of the coil pack.. I had one connected but wasn't actually clipped into place and had the same symptoms as you

    all coil packs look good dry clean no cracks but what i did find was the orange rubber seal that sits in the connector that clips on to the coil top was only in one connector the other two where missing.
    i have cleaned all coils regardless with wd 40 and packed connectors with grease.
    hope this will do the trick for now.
    cheers guys
