You run you jet ski on the water with the hood off? I don't think that is a wise thing to do.

I'm wondering if the hood is somehow cutting out all of the oxygen out of your engine compartment. Has anything been done to it lately?

haha i know and i dont go out with it,nothin hasnt been done to the hood i repainted it a few years ago but for the first 2 years it ran great then the last time it just decided it wont run unless the hood is off, i can prime it and it will run for a second then die so im clueless as to why i cant get a good airflow

Check the vents on the hood to see if there is anything in them. I haven't seen a 550 since the 80's so I am not all that familiar with them any longer.
