XLT1200 problems with second start
I've rebuilt a 2003 XLT 1200 (a new owner, bought it with a seized engine). It starts and runs just fine, or looks to me fine, don't know tbh as I've never had one before.
The problem though - while in the water, I can only start it once. If I stop it, it won't start again - will keep cranking but no fire. To start it again I have to wait. I've ridden it 4 times so far for an hour each time, with no stopping the engine, then I take it to the garage and when I'm back - it starts fine again. Any ideas what that could be? Anyone ever had anything like that?
The first time it starts right away within a sec or two, so don't see any problems there. If I try starting/restarting on the shore - looks like I can restart it multiple times, but not in the water.
Any help greatly appreciated.
