    RXT starting problem

    I replaced my starter a few months ago, so I dont think its the starter but...When I put the key on and hit the start button I heard intermittent clicking from near the starter relay, which I replaced a few weeks ago.Sometimes I hear the starter kick for a second.My battery if also new.Any suggestions?

    get the battery checked out sounds like the same problem my buddy had with his yamaha and it was a bad new battery. take it to like pep boys or somewhere and have them put the tester on it or try using a jumper pack while its in the ski and see if it works.

    Seadoos are notorius for the starter solenoid working intermittently. Mine did the same thing, if battery shows between 12.0-12.8 on a volt meter chances are it is ok. Jump out the solenoid to be for sure. Sometimes mine would work and then sometimes it would decide to leave me stranded.

    Oh sorry you said you did the relay already. RIght?

    Check the battery and look in the foose box and see if there are any blown or melted fuses.. It could have a short.. I had this problem

    Oh yeah that too, it is a crappy in line fuse connection that really doesn't make a great connection, they get loose and corroded also

    You might want to consider a gell cell battery like Odessye. They are pricey, but last a long time with no maintenance... Ron

    I have 2 fast keys.With one key the starter kicks over intermittenly, and the other works perfect.Is one key bad or does the ski have a mind of its own?
