Can you flush a non-starting ski?
It was last used in salt water and it does not turn on for some unknown reason yet. Is there a way to flush it without turning it on?
Where is the cdi on a 2001 1200xlt?

You know where the cdi.ecu is on this 1200xlt unit?
I dont know why the ski is not turning on. Good plugs, 3 month old battery, start/stop button assembly seems fine....Has fuel!.....The display wont even turn on....And when I jump start it with the RXT it just keeps cranking even without the lanyard in!

^ the cdi is in the black case against the firewall or sperator wall.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FLUSH WITH THE ENGINE OFF..!!
You'll drown that sucker in about a minute..!!
The flushing out after every use is a little over emphasised..
If the ski is in use most every week, salt or not flushing is not ABSOLUTELY essential..
But if i lays around for weeks on end the flushing after salt water use is advised..!!
Figure out whats going on with it then flush if you want/need to..
Is it making sparks..?? Is the fuel turned on..?? could be a blocked fuel selector switch..?
Have you checked the compression..??
Best thing would be to list the steps you've taken to rule out the obvious..!!

Geo, you may have a grounding issue or short..... if you connect power for a jump and the motor spins then the starter button may be stuck?
Try an ohm meter to test continuity and to see if there is a closed curcuit on the starter motor itself or maybe a bad solenoid or bendix may be out.

Starter motor wouldn't keep it cranking! it the start switch or the solenoid or possibly a short activating the solenoid Z

If you remove the waterbox you should be able to flush it without the engine on. water won't be able to back up enough to flood the cylinders. . .I think

Remove the black rubber boot that connect the stinger to the water box, remove bungs and tilt the ski. Then the water exiting the water jacket will just go in to the hull and out the bung holes. Therefore, cannot back up in the exhaust from the water box and into the engine.
This presumes that you don't have any other leaks in the water jacket system like a cracked header or damaged gaskets.
