    95' Xp 720 charging question

    Before I put the ski's away for the winter I had taken the XP back out (I fogged it and winterized it) It took a bit of cranking to try to start it since it had to clear out the oil ect.. anyway the battery was ran very low and it wouldn't crank so I put a jumper box on it, cranked it and got it started... the battery light stayed on solid but it stayed running for about 5 minutes or so with the jumper box removed. after I shut it off it wouldn't crank on it's own the starter would try to engauge... could it just be a low battery causing this?

    I replaced the stator/magneto assembly when I bought it and after I put a volt meter on it and ran it the gauge I think was above 12 volts and slowly going up or staying the same the voltage wasnt droping and the light was off... how good of a charging system do these things have? I know car batteries you see 12.6 whent there charged but both my ski batteries fully charged show I think just under that while they are disconnected out of the boat..

    Sucks I have to wait till spring to play with them!

    It was new, I put it on a floating charger for the winter. We'll see what happens I guess in the spring.
