    Default PLEASE HELP Will turn over without spark plugs in but not with them in?

    Yesterday the ski ran okay for a few minutes then could not get it started again. Today pulled the plugs and it turned over fine but with plugs in it is real slow if no turning at all. I have the battery on a 2v trickle charge and it is on the green. Ia this the starter or what?

    Alright i turned it by hand and it turned very smooth. The motor had excellent compression. So does that mean its the starter or battery or what?

    I tried to do a comp test but it does not have enough power to turn over the motor with the starter. What should I do?

    Well first check your battery or jump with another 12 volt battery with jumper cables, if it turns over replace battery. Did you try yet to see if you can turn the motor over by hand with the plugs out, under the coupler cover you should be able to reach in there and turn it.

    yes I turned it over by hand and it turns fine. The motor is not locked. The only reason i think the battery is fine is that it reads a full charge on the trickle charge.

    It May Not Pass A Load Test, With A Volt Meter Turn Over Motor For 15 Seconds And The Volts Should Not Drop Below 9.5 Volts

    I MIGHT HAVE FOUND IT!!! Well i took the seadoo battery out of the spi and put it in my Kawasaki ski and the kawasaki acted the same way and turned over very slow and eventually nothing. So does that mean the seadoo battery was bad and that was my problem?
