    2012 vxr cranks but won't fire.

    Started ski on trailer. My son pulled the throttle hitting the limiter. Ski back fired and shut off. Now won't restart. Has spark. Pulled valve cover off to inspect cams and chain. All checked OK. I don't know what happened? No codes either.

    Replace those spark plugs, and try again.

    Then give your kid a good ass whoopin.. .my dad would have read me the riot act if I ever did some crap like that, on purpose or on accident.

    Just because you plugs show a spark when you test them in the open atmosphere does not mean they will preform the same way under compression.

    When in doubt with your FX or VX , always always change the spark plugs first...

    Post up results from that repair so we can progress from there.

    I believe it skipped timing. I need a service manual to verify the timing points.

    how many hours does it have,,can't imagine it skip a tooth on the timing chain, but anything is possible
