    Ski won't start...

    Well I am getting the ski ready for the year and I can't get it to start... the battery is good... it has gas (which is in the ON position)... I just put in a fresh set of plugs and the wires are on properly... it will crank over but never start. You can tell it is trying to start but it never will. What should I do next? I am slowly learning but currently know very little about jetskis so please be as specific as possible and pics would be awesome! Thanks.

    You dont have a primer do you? When the skis sit for extended periods of time the carbs are completely dry of fuel. You need to choke it and crank it. Might want to remove the plugs and crank it with it choked and the throttle pinned. Reinstall the plugs and she will fire right up.
