    Mike,
    Check the 2 big plugs on the MPEM at the front of the ski. Make sure there is no water in the plugs and that all the wires are seated fully in the plug itself.
    For some reason Doo put the MPEM's in the nose of the ski on the 97's and they get sloshed with water......

    When I had mine I was able to flip the MPEM upside down so it didn't sit in the bottom of the hull.
    Good Luck\
    Doug

    I have seen that there is a bad seal/o ring on the front cover. I think the pto cover. Oil might be dripping down and shorting the stator. We have just replaced the o-rings and the spark is good. Not too easy of a fix. Sadly.

    Just a thought.
