    2003 Gp800R Help

    Today my brother in-law was riding my Gp800r in a no wake zone and the engine just shut off. When he tried to start it back up it won't turn over. All it does is click and nothing seems to be turning. Where do I start to trouble shoot it?

    I'm a broken record on this, but do you see oil inside the bottom of the hull under the carbs?

    Nope I don't see any oil in the bottom. The tank is half full of oil, but nothing looks bad. The oil in the tank seems about a normal level for how much we rode yesterday.

    Check your battery cables. If one loosened up it will cut you off and not give enough power to restart.

    Pull the spark plugs and see if it turns over... If not, try and spin the engine by hand by the coupler on the driveshaft. Id start there....

    No luck with pulling plugs. How easy should the drive shaft spin. I tried with my hands after pulling off the water intake. It don't turn, I tried even with some channel locks no luck.

    So the plugs are out and you cant turn the engine by hand? How many hours on the ski? Do you know if theres wave eater clips installed in the power valves? Where are you located?

    I live in Florida, no idea of the hours on the ski. I picked it up used and the display is bad. I don't believe clips were installed on the PV were installed in it. Is this whathappens when a PV breaks?
