XLT 1200 eats relays
I replaced the engine in this ski (but not the electrics, other than the stator).
The relay in the ebox was very clean looking.
It didn't work. No click, nothing.
So I put in a Superjet relay I had laying around. That one was a bit older and rattier looking.
It worked fine for about 20-30 starts, now it also does not work. Same issue, voltage applied, no click.
What do you think, bad luck or what?
I checked all grounds in the ebox, they're okay.
I checked the regulator output thinking that perhaps it's blown, letting the voltage get up too high. However, it's under 13.3 Volts.

I got some relays available if interested. Is your starter operating ok, when you try to start does your cluster shows anything????

Now if you get a new relay and it fails... she's a pig!
My orig one failed after I removed my engine and replaced some parts. I put a new one on and it's been OK so far.
I'd say try another relay....

I also replaced an engine, and then found the relay to be busted. The original engine failed due to catastrophic rod failure, so I imagine the owner tried to start the locked up engine. possibly making that relay fail.
Anyhow, I wish I could have used anything BUT the ratty looking SJ relay, but that's all I had on hand.

yeah... for sure... I would have used that relay too... I was just noting that you can't say its "eating relays" when the only other one it "ate" was that old ratty sj one.
Get a new one... if it fails, you win... (or lose!) hah.
