    08 RXT Wont start.

    Well, I took my RXT out this weekend, I have 7 hours on it. So.... i have my friend on the back its running fine. And we shoot across the lake to a little cove, and when I let off the throttle and idle, it starts sputtering and I just watch as the rpms drop and then it died. And wouldnt start back up...I tried starting it back up and if i give it some throttle while hitting the start button it starts up but then dies soon after. Any ideas of what might have caused this? Im planning on taking it back to the dealer tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance.

    does your ski hase the new type waterbox like the X modells ? it sounds like your exhaust hose slipped off and the motor is getting exhaust fumes instead of fresh air !!
