    I am thinking you don't understand how the ECU works. You shouldn't power the fuel pump thru the fuse block, it is direct connect from the battery, thru the relay you added (or need to add). This...

    I don't believe in trickle chargers, tenders, etc, don't think they are a good idea. I used to work for one of the largest companies that made chargers for things like forklifts and whatnot, things...

    While this is valid reason, it is not the primary reason for the warning. The main reason is because there are literally millions of idiots that don't know that red is positive, black is negative. ...

    Either a stuck reed switch in the DESS post (yours has 2, it is a 4 wire), or a stuck main power relay.
  5. Because: 1. There is no evidence out there...

    Because:

    1. There is no evidence out there that proves reused bolts are inferior to new bolts
    2. I ( and others) have personally seen instances of bad new bolts. In other words, simply...
  6. You didn't read the previous posts or pay...

    You didn't read the previous posts or pay attention. From 2002 to 2006, the manual states that the bolts can be reused if they are within stretch limits. They only added this verbiage in 2007. And...

    Nonsense. This is your opinion, not verifiable with data.

    This reminds me of an example with an aircraft engine, I seem to recall a Lycoming? A lot of people, including engineers, tend to think "stronger is better", just like this discussion with ARP...

    I read that thread, it seems you did a newbie error and hydrolocked the bolt? That has nothing to do with this topic, it was an error on your part.

    You are not following the rules by the OP, which clearly say "no uneducated opinions"
  11. This topic comes up quite often, maybe it has...

    This topic comes up quite often, maybe it has been 5 years since it last came up. You all are forgetting the purpose of the head bolts, as well as forgetting about expansion and contraction of...

    Yeah, buy a new battery! Geez, guys, this isn't rocket science. If your battery is dead, don't mess around with jump starting, trying to charge the battery, etc. Just buy a new battery!

    A couple of points:

    1. 05 and 06 MPEM's are not the same. You can, however use a 2006 MPEM on 05 and older skis. You cannot use a 2002-2005 MPEM on a 2006 ski. It will throw a TOPS fault.

    The gauge going blank is your clue, you are losing power to the system.
  15. Yes, either your starter is bad, or the cables...

    Yes, either your starter is bad, or the cables leading to the starter are bad.

    No way to test starter itself in the ski. You can test the cables by doing a voltage drop test. Put one probe on...

    LOL! Look at the wheel, it is offset as well! Probably looked like a circus wheel rolling down the road!

    That type wheel has no centering flange, gets its center from the tapered lug nuts. ...

    I agree wholeheartedly with K447. We are not yet in a position to relax the stay at home rules. There are 5 factors that can mitigate this crisis:

    1. Universal access and required wearing of N95...

    MAP sensors are prone to failing and are a helluva lot cheaper than ECM's. What intake pressure values were you showing when connected to BUDS? A good MAP sensor will read 14.7 psi with engine off,...

    Necro thread. You do realize you are responding to something that happened three years ago?

    Kawaski doesn't use a centrifugal SC, it is positive displacement, so it really isn't in the same category. However, the Kawi SC has a lot of inertia as the mass of the assembly is greater than the...

    Nonsense. The clutch wouldn't unload during a surge event. You forget that most centri race chargers out there don't use sprag clutches. The sprag clutch is only there from the re-entry after loss...

    And why do you think you are right? Just because BOV's are used in other applications, including race SC's, why do you think this applies to the Yamaha design? Do you have any data to prove your...

    You have this all wrong. There is no slippage on a sprag clutch during acceleration, the SC is locked during accel. The whole purpose of the sprag clutch is to eliminate shaft breakage during fast...
