    What to do when ski flips....?

    I know I have to un-flip it. But do I have to check anything after that? My ski was flipped for the first time last Sunday and I was just told today. It was weird because when it happened the person that was riding it came back saying that the display was going crazy. The speedometer and rpms were going all the way up, then down. The ski ran normal but the display also read "KEY". I had no idea what was going on so I looked inside the engine compartment and there was water inside. I asked if they had flipped and they said NO! I took the water out, I cleaned the key and the plug and it stopped doing it and continued normally. I was so pissed when I was told that they had flipped and had lied in my fucking face

    Anyways, what should have been done when it happened....Besides checking the small storage compartment below the steering column.... My $300 phone was there, got wet and does not work now......TO add to my rage...

    you don't need to do anything other then run her balls out for a little while. Give the bailer system time to get rid of all the water.

    The gauge thing sounds like water got inside it. Our gtx sc got some water inside of it and first it started acting funny until later in the weekend if went off completly and the ski would beep every minute or so. It would flash on and off, reset at random, show one thing but not another until it finally just died.

    I'll bet good money that the ski was at idle, the three of them were chattin' it up (good times and all), the ski tipped, everyone panicked, and HELD ON TO THE SKI as it started going over

    It's always best, when the ski starts to roll at idle... BAIL

    GeoRXT... I think the ski will be OK... not being forthcoming on their part kinda sucked though!

    That is how it started. I actually think it took two weekends. There should be no condensation inside the display, there was on ours
