Customer Question
I own a Kawasaki...

I own a Kawasaki 11 STX. 2 stroke, For the past 2 - 3 years we battle to start the engine when cold. Just about runs the Bat. flat. After she has warmed up no problem, leave her for a hour or three same story ? What could the problem be ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

No that's all thank you still does 80kms on water.
