2001 Genesis cutting out
I have a 2001 Genesis fuel-injected jet ski that is cutting out for no apparent reason. I can be going along at 20 to 50 MPH smoothly and all of a sudden, the ski looses power, as if it is loosing gas. Sometimes I can choke the throttle and stop it from shutting off completely, but most of the time it shuts down. I can start it right back up, as if there was never an issue, and ride if for a while before it does it again. Per the local marina mechanic, I tried putting fuel additive in it to absorb any water in the gas, which seemed to work at first, but I am right back to where I was. I have bled the fuel line, tightened up the fittings (the ones I could see) but nothing seems to be working. Anyone have any ideas of things I could try before I have to take the ski in for diagnosis and repair? Thanks - Go2lkg

go2, WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!!
The first thing I would do is check fuel pressure. The pump is old enough to where it will begine to fail in the manner you speak.
If you don't have a fuelpressure port you just need to add the schraeder valve in line at the feed line.
Let me know if you need directions or fuel pressure values.

If you still have no luck finding the problem, carry it to a dealer and have them hook it up to the laptop and check the fuel timing on the emm to make sure it's no going out.
