    Interesting things happen if you flip your ski with motor running for too long

    As per usual, you lend your ski and the operator doesn't know how the kill switch works........

    ANYWAY, not all bad.
    Ski flipped after long "mono" and was upside down, the operator left the ski running upside down for about 3 secs. The low oil pressure error code came up and the ski didn't want to rev past 2800 rpm well after many key starts and few mins of riding after wards (No water in hull).

    So with the VTECH logger I checked the error codes and found the low oil pressure was triggered but CEL was still active even though code is historic?

    Anyway, clear code with the VTECH logger (Or maptuner) and the ski runs like nothing happened.


    Just thought I'd let you guys know, that if you travel far to jump waves or something, you could be idling home for a long long time if you can't clear a low oil pressure CEL thats historic.


    I wonder if this is what happened to the other guy in WA, Australia that had the same fault after standing the ski on its tail... Hmmm.

    Mine spends a lot of time vertical have had no oil problems
    I would expect low oil pressure check would be normal upside down no oil at the pump
    so maybe a back flip is not possible ??

    The watercraft is designed so that it
    should not turn over easily. Two sponsons
    mounted on the side of the hull,
    assist watercraft stability. If it turns
    over, it will remain capsized.
    WARNING
    When watercraft is capsized, do
    not attempt to restart the engine.
    Operator and passengers should
    always wear approved personal
    flotation devices.
    CAUTION
    Heat exchanger
    in the hull may become very hot.
    Avoid any contact with the heat exchanger
    as burns may occur.
    To turn the watercraft upright, ensure
    the engine is off and the tether cord
    is
    NOT on the engine cut-off switch.
    Then grab the inlet grate, step on a
    side bumper rail, and use your weight
    to rotate thewatercraft towards you.
    NOTE:
    A label on the stern near the
    flushing connector provides instructions
    on how to turn the watercraft
    right side up. The label is upside down
    so that it can be read when thewatercraft
    is overturned.
    smo2014-005-066_a
    When the watercraft is returned to its
    normal operating position, the engine
    can be started normally.
    NOTE:
    It is recommended to ride the
    vehicle for approximately 5 minutes
    with engine speed lower than 5000
    RPMto evacuate any water thatmight
    have been accumulated in the bilge.
    Never exceed 5000 RPM. If not, water
    could get inside the engine.
    NOTICE
    If the watercraft has been
    capsized for more than 5 minutes,
    do not attempt to crank the engine
    to avoid water ingestion that would
    damage the engine. See an authorized
    Sea-Doo dealer as soon as possible.
    NOTICE
    If the engine does not
    crank, do not attempt to start it anymore.
    Otherwise, the engine could
    be damaged. See an authorized
    Sea-Doo dealer as soon as possible.

    Understood and this is why we fit bilge pumps I guess

    As I said, no water inside, bilge not pumping anything.

    Ski was rev-limited to 2800 rpm on basically any throttle position with CEL on but code in history.

    Curious how the ski stayed running for 3 seconds while upside down... Was the dude not wearing the lanyard?

    My thoughts exactly. Unless he was hanging on while ski was inverted.
