    Need help with 96 sea doo gsx

    I have purchased a sea doo gsx 1996, 787 rotax. It died on the lake the other day and I have changed spark plugs, fuses, cleaned the r.a.v.e valves( it looked like it has never been opened before). It died after about 20 minutes of riding. It will turn over and run for a few seconds then die and the start button will not work for a minute. Does anyone have a clue as I am new to pwc's.

    Compression check? If good (150psi) time for carb rebuilds and cleaning, also clean fuel selector and replace fuel lines

    The fuel selector is where you are able to turn the fuel supply on and off and to reserve as well. On my XP it is on the left side of the cowl in the same spot that the gas fill is but on the right side.
