    I have a 2000 Yamaha Waverunner XA1200Y that cranks but wont start. If spark is good where do I go next?

    Compression, then fuel

    Premix some fuel and oil in a bottle and squirt some in each spark plug hole and replace plugs. whilst cranking over if it tries to start it's more than likely your carbs. If it has low compression on one or more cylinders, is not going to idle, it's a lost cause and needs rebuilt...even if you get it running albeit rough it won't last long
