    Check to see if your electrical system is charging the battery.


    See what you get for volts at the batter terminal at idle, and with a touch of throttle

    If you got two years out of a Walmart battery, you are a year ahead of the game.

    I bet if you replace the battery your ski will be fine.

    Load test the battery and make sure it's junk.
    Did you verify spark when it would turn over but not start?
    I'm voting battery as well but maybe check just the same??

    Check Terminals and cable links for tightness especially earths .Use a multi meter on all the earths to the battery .Load test the battery and go from there

    Cheers

    just get rid of it , for what youll pay on fill ables youll save with a non spill able ,

    iv gotten mine for 50 $

    and last time i was at walmart they are chargeing 40 something for fillables ,

    along with a trickle charger it will prolly be the last battery youll buy for the ski as long as you own it ( 6 years max )
