I just got this ski yesterday from a guy that said the carbs need cleaned out.I regestered it today and took it out to see what it would do.It started up great took off and about 400 yards it just quits:(. So I sit there about 4-5 minutes and it starts right up again:) so I take off and another 400 yards it quits,And everytime after the 400 yards it has to sit the 5 min.becouse it just clicks.I did this about 10 times.The old owner just put in a brand new battery 3 weeks ago and it is new,After my 10 times back and forth the new battery is dead.So one thing I know it is not charging,I have been a marine mechanic for 15 years and wanted to get my own ski but I don't know much about them.:(

your battery won't charge much starting and stalling,there not designed for that
replace the wrist pin bearing piston and resleeve or bore the jug,but look into why it wentsee if a ring hit the exh port it common on well used yams
