    Polaris virage tx

    I recently bought this ski and haven't had it very long
    Took them out to the lake today was ridding with no issues until i stoped and turned it off in the middle of the lake, then it wouldn't restart. I towed it in and went to load on trailer and it started so I loaded and took out of water let them sit for a few hours. Took them back out and it started on the trailer so we unloaded and started to head out but when I got out of the no wake zone it died and won't restart. Any ideas I'm new to all this and Don't really have a clue where to start to try and figure it out.

    Welcome to Greenhulk! First things first, is this a carbureted model or direct injection?

    Update: I charged the battery and was able to get it started with starter fluid and now it will fire right up going to take to the lake in the a.m. and test it but im still confused why the problem occurred in the first place

    Does the engine now start by itself, no priming or starter fluid?

    Even if left sitting for hours?

    It sat for 6 hours and fired right up without the choke or starter fluid

    I generally have distrust for machines that ‘fix themselves’ as they can unfix themselves sometime later, perhaps without warning and potentially put the rider in danger.

    Why it was shutting itself off and not restarting, there are multiple possible causes.

    One
    possible cause would be the LR-505 Start/stop module. There are other possibilities l
