Thread: Help?

  1. #1

    Help?

    ok i took my ski to the lake to tune it and i seem to have a problem . The ski is breaking up nasty at wide open throttle. i didnt really get to do much tuning it seem like nothing would fix it. What ive noticed is cylinders 2 and 3 were at normal temp but cylinder 1 was cold it was cold enough for me to be able to tell . does anyone have any idea what the problem might be???? im doing a compression test this week to see it thats a problem.



    I need some advice

    Well on the first pass they came out a little on the darker brown side but cylinder #1 came out wet and black but on the second pass they all came out looking pretty even across

    Do a compression check...go to the auto parts store and get you a compression gauge. Makes no difference if it's dead on accurate, you just need to find out if the cylinders are close to each other on compression.

    yes!!! change them back,or that one with the old one..why they were changed out? were they suspected to be bad before this ? you may have a dead coil or just a bad connection to that one.. check that particular area again....

    Don't do too many things at once. I learned this the hard way and never really figured out what went wrong with mine. If you want to get down to the problem on your ski, do things one at a time. Starting with the compression check.

    +1 compression will tell everything.

    As others have said, check compression, but I am leaning towards a coil problem. I think it's not getting hot because it is not firing consistently.
