    Please help ski stopped running

    Hi,
    Was out on lake today and everything was running fine WOT and everything for 30 mins. Then we were doing some quick turns and a couple kills of engine and restarts like we normally do then. It started to sound funny but wasnt sounding that bad so we turned it off. Restarted it and ran it and started goin and it cut out on us. Then tried starting it and wouldnt start. So a local boater towed us too shore. Took spark plugs out replaced with brand new ones. The plugs were dry. Tried too start wouldnt start. I had bendix and starter and flywheel replaced about 1.5 years ago. So im not sure wut it is now lack of fuel,carb,etc.......... If anyone has an idea it would be greatly appreciated. Oh yeh and when it did start gave it alot of throttle but didnt really move and then it bogged down and quit on me.

    96 750 ss kawasaki

    Thanks
    Nick

    sounds like a sandtrap full of rattlesnakes.


    pull the plugs..

    pour one teaspoon of fuel down each jug
    plugs back in, choke on, try for an engine start

    if you get a few seconds, then focus on fuel supply. IF the engine overheated, it could be done.

    oh yeah, please try to describe "sounded funny"..cause if you ask me, I think it may have turned out to be the engine sounding sad

    the longer the pump is unhooked the longer the flow of fresh water into the engine is denied.

    of course that is not a good result

    engine sounds sad....

    needs a rebuild...after you figure out what melted the piston.

    Most likely one of the carbs starved for fuel.

    pull the top end..you got nuthin to lose but a few hours.

    or leave it complete and sell it as is.
