    Andy, is your battery new, and your ski still won't start without a jumper? The battery load tests ok, or if you put it in another ski, it works fine?

    Where in the Phillipines are you? I was in Roxas last year, picked up a load of Coconut Oil. Looking at that beautiful coastline, all I could think was how much fun a jetski would be there!

    You shouldn't need a jump to start it. Thats not normal even on a newly rebuilt engine. Whats the batt volts drop down to when trying to start it on 1 battery?

    At least 10.6(to create spark), but the higher the better.
