    NEED HELP!!! '96 Polaris 780 SLT

    I put both my '96 Polaris SLT 780 in the water today. Pulled one jetski behind the other one. After 2 minutes in the water, the one jetski I was on (which is the one I was pulling the other one with) started to sputter and I noticed the MFD (multifunctional display) quit working at the same time. It seems that the ski won't go past 20 mph. Also, the one I was one, is also using mixed gas. Any suggestions....THANKS FOR ANY HELP..

    do you have plenty of gas in it? low fuel will cause it to sputter.

    all your electrical connections clean and tight?

    same problem on my '96 slx 780. with mine the stator seems to be bad I am in the process of replacing it. I would ohm out the stator/magneto. If you have the manual it will give you the specs. I think it was to ohm out at 490 ohms,but not 100% sure on that I dont have my manual with me.......
