    ignition

    Have a 2000 slx and after riding or stopping engine on lake because of crash or relaxing. The ski has a hard time restarting. If it sits a little while it starts with no problem. Just don't want to be stranded. Thanks

    It may be the carbs need gone through, or my guess will be the stator is starting to get weak. It sounds as if the stator is getting "heat soaked" and not producing a sufficient spark until the engine has time to cool.

    There is a SB for this condition. Copied from the tech section.

    Hard Start When Warm
    Here is the cdi jumper wire TSB for most domestic models that are hard or will not start when hot.

    Service Bulletin # PWC-00-05
    August 8, 2000

    Subject
    Add Jumper Wire to CDI
    Model Affected: Serial Number Range:
    2000 Virage (W005197D) ALL
    2000 Virage TX (W005199D) ALL
    2000 Pro 1200 (W004999D) ALL
    2000 Genesis (W005099D) ALL

    SCENARIO #1 MODELS WITH DUAL FUNCTION START/STOP BUTTON

    Symptom: Engine will not turn over when engine is warm. After stopping the engine and trying to re-start the engine when warm, the starter motor will not turn over.
    In this scenario, the CDI remains powered up after the engine is shut off, causing the CDI to think the engine is still running even though it is not.
    After the engine and CDI cool, it will re-start normally. Install jumper
    wire PN 2460928 to resolve this issue, following the instructions below.

    SCENARIO #2 MODELS WITH SEPARATE START/STOP BUTTON

    Symptom: Engine turns over but will not start when engine is warm. After stopping the engine and trying to re-start the engine when warm, the engine will crank, but not start.
    Again, in this scenario, the CDI remains powered up after the engine is shut off, causing the CDI to think the engine is still running even though it is not.
    After the engine and CDI cool, it will re-start normally.
    Install jumper wire PN 2460928 to resolve this issue, following the instructions below.
