    old ski no spark

    I just bought what was supposed to be a 1993 wave runner but after looking up the HIN i find it is an 88 model.
    It cranks well but no spark. The previous owner was older had had used the ski the last 4 years without problem. This year however it did not start when he put it in the water.
    I would like to know how to test the components to find the problem.

    I have this similar problem with both of my 1988 models. I have another post on here with the manual pages attached showing the test procedure. After I tested mine, I still haven't resolved the problem and I need help interpreting the results I got. I hate to spend money on parts I can't return If it is something I don't need.
    I would LOVE TO KNOW what you find out that is wrong with yours.

    It's very possible the wires in the spark plug leads are broken and not making good contact. Pull the plug caps off and inspect. I like to have a 1/4" of bare wire at the ends of the leads.

    check you start stop switch they have a habbit of going bad. check the leads with a multimeter and use a manual or download one. yamaha start stop swtiches are pretty much the same
