    HELP - R12x Shuts Off and adjust Idle Question

    Hello, I am new here, I have been riding waverunners for years and have always riden Yamaha. I decided to give the R12x a shot and I am quite happy with it.

    I do have a slight problem that I hope can be resolved. Whenever I am riding hard and pull 360s When I come out of the spin the engine shuts off more often than not, it will start right up again, usually with little effort but it is a little annoying.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    2004 Honda R12x (9 hours)

    is the idle set at 1200 RPM?

    if so, take a look at the low pressure oil switch. It may be bad.

    HELP - R12x Shuts Off

    Please forgive my ignorance. I do not know a whole lot about four strokes. I am assuming the tach is sensitive enough to determine this, if so, how do I adjust the idle if it is not set at 1200? I just bought this ski as a leftover 2004 from a local dealer, i am the first owner. Thanks, Tomas Garcia

    first the ski must be warmed up on the hose. (5 mins min)

    On the dash push the Mode button till you see RPM displayed on the screen.

    Take the seat off and look between the air filter and red valve cover there is a black knob. turn that clockwise to increase the idle speed. to 1200 RPM.

    PS the location of this knob is different for different years but thats were the 04 is.
