    Ski just shut off while riding!?!?!

    Put the ski in the water for the first time in a few months for a quick spin...the battery was giving me trouble when i first started it up, went to the fuel dock and put some fuel in, batt gave me trouble again.. Jumped it with the dockmasters jump box. Rode half way home and the ski just shut off on me!! Feels like it just lost all power. Try to re-start and just get a "heavy click" like the ski is locked up. Could it be the battery just gave up completley? the batt is 6 yrs old.....I didnt think the ski could shut off while it was running though, and i was only cruising at about half throttle. Any insight to what this may be???

    had an issue with like this last year ski, wouldnt start but would hear a click. I changed the battery and everything was fine. Im surprised that ur battery lasted 6 years.

    I ordered the "Rolls Royce" of batteries for my ski Odyssey P925LMJ from lmrbatteries.com for 158.00 w/ free shipping.Best deal on the net, this thing should last forever.

    It sounds like $75 for the battery and $75 labor... Ron
