    Starter Switch Question on Kawasaki STX1100

    I recently took the electric box out of my ski and cleaned the inside and all the wire connections. I started the ski up but when it first starts up it backfires one time then runs fine, if I have the positive cable going from the starter to that solenoid and the cable going to the battery reversed will that cause it backfire, I checked the reeds while the motor was out and thet looked good, any idea's.

    If you swap the leads on the starter relay, it won't do anything at all.

    Thanks Steve, any idea why the ski is backfiring, like I said it only does it one time and it's always when you first start it, you should open a jetski repair shop on Lake Conroe, we need someone that knows how to repair these things.

    Is it backfiring out the exhaust or the carburetor(s)? Why did you have the engine out? Does it do it every time you start it?
