    IMO you're over thinking this-the supercharger on the current Sea-Doos is not an issue to be concerned about. If you want an issue to worry about, focus on the infamous driveshaft seal:). The 230...

    It sounds like the exhaust system if full of water so the engine is seeing a lot of back pressure. I would remove the water box (resonator) and empty it or try to siphon the water out. He's lucky...

    My guess is that the tether is snagging on the check ball. It is an unnecessarily complicated design. I keep a spare plug in the trunk of my tow vehicle to replace a lost plug when the tether...
