    Battery voltage

    Hi
    just curious if anyone who owns a Kawasaki knows what their voltage battery reading is when you ski is running? My mates is running 12.3 while running. Is this correct??
    any help would be great
    cheers

    His ski will start fine out of the water but won't start in the water. When got it started it will conk out and also when he was idling and adjusted his vts the Ski shook as if it had no power. Does this sound like a battery problem?

    Also what does it do, turn over slow or just not at all? Could be that red wire going into the starter relay by the battery. They're known to get loose and not start

    We are not to sure what it is at those rpms unfortunately. But it kicks over great out of the water. I'll get him to check that red wire. He has a ultra 310 Kawasaki too if that makes any difference.

    In the water does it just turn over slow or just click/do nothing?

    How true, I just experienced that for the first time this week on my 08 15F. Battery just clicks when the nut is loose. I thought it was corrosion until I saw the loose nut.

    Check the starter relay, thought that got fixed after the 300 series but if that little red boot on the relay has a black spot its bc the nut is loose and the connection is hot

    Well the battery got replaced as it was faulty. Plus he had a massive vacuumed leak where the blow off valve was.
    Somthe ski runs great now.
