    Electrical problems 96 SPI

    Brought the SPI back from it's storage spot at the airport. :) My first ski... bought about a year and a half ago. I love this ski. :D Pretty snappy for an SPI but as some may remember it has a factory pipe, electronics, and is nicely set up. Hit 48mph on it before the malfunction. Let the...

    Electrical problems 96 SPI

    It's just gonna blow it up Matt like it did the last one. I have to find the problem. I'm giving myself a week on this one once I get started. :) Gonna be an adventure. I brought it back home and it is going in the shop today. Right after I get my air compressor fixed up and functional...

    Electrical problems 96 SPI

    Would it be a good idea to check each wire to ground ? I'm just figuring where I should start. I bought a rectifier to replace the one in the ski. I'm gonna test and check the starter solenoid. Input is appreciated.

    Electrical problems 96 SPI

    I am starting back on this repair again. I am caught up somewhat so I have some time. I have a short or something going on that keeps blowing the diode on the ECM. I am going over the wiring diagram How many ways can this ski back feed and blow the diode?? Which ones are more likely...

    RESTO 96 GTX computer swap to 96 XP

    I was going to swap my whole gray box fromt he XP to the GTX. If you do that you'll need to add a longer harness to get to the engine because the electric box is in the front of the ski on the GTX. I don't know if the tach will work after ther swap. Matt Braley knows all that kinda stuff. LOL

    Electrical questions

    Try to identify the correct wires and test them. I had trouble with my 96 GTX not recognizing the key insertion. Then all of a sudden it would work fine. Matt Braley suggested I clean the wire connections. I bought the tool so I could pull the pins. First thing I found was on the Dess...

    Electrical questions

    That does look pretty clean. Did you check the resistance on the wires coming from the stator and the puck up? Did you do resistance checks on the MPEM ?

    2003 GTI Wiring

    Hey Miki, I'm looking at the parts list for this ski and on the 2003 and 2004 I don't see the adapter set up that is on my ski. I had to repair the adapter because the the wires were breaking (you can see in the picture they are in bad shape), the insulation was cracked. I can't see by your...

    96 XP Project

    I had a bit of a run in with the 2003 GTI. (No Fire and solenoid clicking but not engaging) The connections on the coil wires were very corroded. So I cleaned everything up in the rear elect. box. Then in cleaning I believe I opened up one of the connectors on the solenoid and it was loose...

    2003 GTI Wiring

    I went through my parts stock pile and found a start relay. After some arguing I found the plug wires are loose on the solenoid connector. got this baby firing up at will though. Yeeeehaaa !! If all is well... it's going in the water today or tomorrow. I'm liking.... TODAY !!

    Man that is cool !!! That must have been a ton of work to get the bare metal looking like that !! You must have a lot of room. Where do you work on the skis ?? I have 4 acres buy my shop was not designed with enough space for all I am doing. I've had concrete poured out back for 10 years...

    2003 GTI Wiring

    You da man !!! Thanks Bro. Sure looked like some kinda rig job with the hot wire coming off the battery but it was too neat. Ha ha. I guess I'm good ta go then after the solenoid. Got it started but need to put it in the water to see how the carb is gonna perform.

    2003 GTI Wiring

    The saga continues. :) Cut relay can't be working can it? The ski starts but the solenoid needs replacing. Not sure if the wire is all factory on the rear box. On the front near the MPEM there is a hot wire coming directly from the battery and going to the Rectifier. Not sure but it looks...

    Good point. I'll be careful.

    2003 GTI Issues

    I'm gonna give the carb I fixed a try and see what it does. The carb internals aren't all that healthy. I'm sure it will run but we'll see how well. I like going down paths like this because it helps me establish parameters for future repairs. :)

    2003 GTI Issues

    I'm gonna look closer at mine. I saw a carb on OSD for around $220. I wasn't sure it was a fit. By the time I buy that carb kit and needle and seat I'm almost half-way there as far as cost is concerned. :)

    96 XP Project

    Some thoughts. I'm no guru but I've spent some time on this. :) Did you clean the pick up and all that stuff inside the stator cover? One of my GTXs wouldn't spark because I had some junk on the pick up. If the MPEM doesn't detect rotation it won't fire. The GTX got temperamental every now...
