So I pulled out my ski , checked everything over. It looked good so connected the battery and started it up. It fired right up no problem, except it was smoking a little bit, then it just kept smoking , larges amounts!! The ski ran fine before. It was only in storage for 3 months, yes it was outside. the only thing i can think was the I did store it at a 45 degree angle , to keep water from gathering in the foot holes. It is '05 r12x with 30 hrs. Thanks for any positive input!!
