    Omg i made a mess

    I have a 2013 kawi stx15. The thing was mint I put fuel in it from my gas caddy then noticed the vent cap was broken and now have water in my fuel and cant keep it running. I am pretty sure these dont have carbs. What do I have to do to fox this? Any ideas would be great. I am pretty handy and have replaced engines in skis. I just need some guidance and a few you tube vids. Thanks

    You will want to remove all the water from the tank. Pretty easy to do. Remove the fuel pump remembering how it was in the tank and use a fluid extractor. If it is low enough, just a few gallons, you can remove the fuel hose from the injector rack and let the fuel pump do the work. Let the ski settle and the water will be on the bottom of the tank. Once you start getting strait gas out of the line put some in a clear plastic bottle and make sure no water settles to the bottom then you know you are done.

    Thanks for the advice on how to get it out of the tank. But what about the injectors? or carbs? or whatever is gunked up now that's making it stall

    No carbs on a 15. Pull the plugs after the water removal process and if you are just getting a fine most of has coming out you will be good. As long as everything has not been sitting in the tank it will not be sludged up.
