1st Day out this season and engine fails :(
Been really eager to get out for the 1st time this season on my 2005 RXT.
Finally got it into the water today, and the engine stalled after about 3 mins on the water
I could hear the engine begin to falter just before, but nothing obvious. Then each time I re-started the engine.. it would run for about 30 secs or so, then stop again
Only has about 40hours on it, and is still in "perfect" condition (apart from the fact it now doesn't work!). It has been kept all snuggly in a nice warm garage all winter, and has been been occasionally started to keep things moving. Was left with a small amount of fuel in the tank, along with fuel stabiliser. Before I went out today I put about half a tank of new fuel in.
It's still under warranty, so will be back in the dealer tomorrow morning....
But in the meantime, any ideas or help would be appreciated!

The first thing I would do is change the plugs.

well, yesterday me and a buddy were going to go out on his jet ski. We had everything ready to go, filled it with fresh gas, had our jackets, and we didnt forget a thing. Get it into the water, im there holding it, and he runs down with the key jumps on and trys to start it up for the first time(since he has owned it.) Starts right up, then 5 sec later it dies. Trys and trys for like 10 minutes. So we say **** it and load it back up and went to my parents house to get free food We go back outside to see if we can find out what was messing up, and i think to my self. Dont these have a fuel cut off switch. We look at the side of the jet ski and it was turned off. Wow, was he pissed when i told him to look at that. what a day.
