    I agree with jet, itis either the computer or there is a short somewhere in the electrical system.

    Water & Electrical dont mix. You have water damage in the electrical system that needs to be addressed. Ask Skip, I think he mentioned something about this in another thread.

    welcome to my life

    this was happening to me since the day i bought the ski. after many replacements there was still no answer, but i fixed mine (b/c kawi voided my warrenty (search some of my posts on this topic)) and found that there was a loose connection in the wire harnes, taking aparts all connectios did not work but apparently in the early models like mine, in the fron right hand corner of the ski there is a bunfle of whires that were jery rigged from the factory, you can find it easily b/c it looks like a monkey ripped some wires apart and bound them all together and just put tape around them to hide it. undo the take and check all connections and correct any breaks, the other thing i did was tape, tighten and secure the fuse holder on the side of the ecu panel in front of ski, just to make sure that would not become a problem. I have not had any problems since, No thanks to kawasaki. hope this helps some, and i am sorry you are having problems i know it is a bummer and feels like it will ruin your summer but don't let it keep you down, there are tons of super nice and super smat guys here that are usually willing to help. just keep posting and feel free to contact me if i can help

    Interesting, I recall Jwilson recently and I am paraphrasing, its only a matter of time till the crap out. Might be time to look in depth at his new fuel pump install.
