    GP1200R Problem (I know another)

    So I sold this ski about 2 weeks ago, but the current owners are having problems. They got a rope wrapped around the driveshaft and they say they removed it. They had to tip the ski onto it's side to remove it. They said there is some water on the bottom of the ski, but not much. The ski cranks, but doesn't start. This must mean the battery isn't dead? I was wondering if maybe they didn't get all the rope? They said some of the components were wet, but I didn't think it would mean much. Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

    I'm not taking it back by any means, but hey if I can help them out I will. Heck if it's blown I might buy it back for a project.

    Just found out there was 6-7" of water on the bottom, wondering if it could have possibly been hydrolocked?

    Yeah, not sure if it's junk or not. I told them to charge the battery and rule that one out, but I doubt that's it. Yeah, the reliability of a 2 Stroke is bad. Thankfully I'm on the 4-Stroke side now.. If mine ever gets out of the shop. Should be ready Tuesday I hope.

    Tell them to pull each spark plug and turn the motor over. If it shoots out water, you know the issue.

    They're checking tomorrow morning. I thought there was an easy way to remove water out of a hydrolocked motor? No? Can't really part things out here, no one will buy the parts. Personally I'd sell the parts on here and buy a used engine for it.
