    Yeah, So your engine is turning over slow or turning over ok?

    New good battery?

    I guess this may be hard to figure out. Go thru the whole thing from the battery to starter. Check ground wires and contacts.

    When it turns over it turns over fine, but it most of the time just gives a starter clunk like low volts, i have a new superstart battery which is a deka 325cca. I dunno im going to pull starter and cables and go from there.

    The cables are a known problem for these skis. A lot of water gets in these XPs to do damage to the electrics.
