Had to get towed in....
The Ultra 250 that is. I had to tow my wife's 250 back with my RXT. The 250 just died after running it hard for about an hour.
It only has 10 hours on it, so it's going to the dealer on Monday. It restarted a couple of times but kept dieing. I think some hoses popped off as water sprayed into the engine compartment one of the times that it did restart. Not sure why it died though -- maybe water is spraying on some ignition components or something.
We were at the other side of the lake from where we put in, so it took almost an hour to tow it back. Oh well....

if an exhaust hose popped off it was dumping exhaust into the hull and choking out the motor for air. just put the hose back on and try it again.

The guys on the 250 side of the forum said to check if the intercooler is cracked. It does act like it is ingesting water and drowing out the combustion. Plus, water is spraying into the hull from what looks like the side of the intercooler right where the two halves mate together....hmm. I'll keep everyone posted on what it is. It's off to the dealer today.
Oh, and the RXT runs great. My wife made the comment that she bet the Seadoo'ers on this site would love to see a picture of me towing the Kawi back to the dock....lol

Just like what SeanCucf said, check your exhaust hoses its a hell`ve alot easier to do than draggin it off to the dealer. Take off seats, and unscrew the seat base, its held down with 4 10mm bolts and reach down and follow your hoses to the muffler, slip it on, tighten it up and away you go. I doubt the intercooler has cracked its pretty heavyduty. I have 54hrs of hardass riding on mine and no probs so far....knock on wood!!

Hey, just kidding. I guess I'll have to start reading up on the Kawi side of the forum to see what I need to do.
Hey do you know if the water goes through the intercooler when running on the trailer with the garden hose?
