    For your 2nd issue, if the craft is off and floating aka beached and it continues to take-on water, I'd remove the plastic shroud cover over the IB couplers so you can shine a flashlight in that...

    Most 2004-2008 broken skis I ever see are ones that have thrown rods - hence oil in the hull. The mr1 (HO 1100cc) seemed to have been pushed to their upper limits, and the dry sump design makes them...

    For contrast sake, I have a 2005 FXHO craft (much older), and it gets no water inside just sitting in the water. Now, after a whole afternoon out on rough waters and 50+ miles later, sure it might...

    So if I read the original post (OP) correctly, we have a 2006 craft (electrics worked fine previously) that now has a 2009 engine (aka old mr1 for a newer one), and now there are electrical-related...

    That would be a "no", I surely have not seen a 12/17 in practice. Then again, how many folks are (will be) running this setup? Maybe you'll pioneer something new & specific for your custom setup.

    Generally agree . . . essentially what moves the craft forward is not only the velocity of water the jet pump picks up and slings rearward, but also the quantity being slung - keeping it layman here...

    Hey Ken, then impeller housing is all external business to the hull. Swapping that out - and perhaps to help quell your suspicions a little - I really can't see a way to produce water intrusion as...

    Well, the official 2004-2008 MR1 Service manual is a bit convoluted ... yet if memory serves me right, the switch is indeed normally close, and opens only when sufficient pressure is applied ( aka...

    For the record, that's not really all that weird ... as the negative terminal of the solenoid's coil circuit is a switched ground (via Security unit), therefore you are "seeing" the voltage potential...

    My 1st guess, might be an issue with the lanyard switch, or the thickness of the pull-tab - could be right on that cusp of triggering.

    Could be other things, like - engine stop button, or the...

    I agree with "Myself"... in I too have seen where someone deliberately ran an extra ground from the Security box to the oil cooler ground plane.

    I don't have my crystal ball nearby, but there was a poor track record once upon a long time ago in which many units rolled off production without enough lube. Talking bone-dry.

    Run away !!
    A first-timer should not buy a frankenstein-ski as your first ski. Why would you even consider this?? Money? Save up and consider a "normal" used ski if you cannot afford to buy new.
