    Help!!! my 1300 wont start

    Recently my 03 gpr needed a new throttle cable because the part that connects to the oil throttle snapped. I had taken the ski apart before and connected everything back together correctly. Now when I hit the starter all it does is crank and crank and crank but no start. I replaced the plugs and made sure everything was correct. Can it be the battery even though it cranks or should i look elsewhere?

    If the cable is not adjusted correctly, it wont start (lose spark)

    Loosten the cable a bit at the throttle and see.

    Throttle posison sensor on the front of the throttle body. If you put carbs on a 1300 then the sensor has to be fooled into thinking its at idel. I have resistors worked out that do that.
