1999 seadoo sportster 1800 winterize Google Search

Yes, the manuals specifically states to pinch it. It's about filling every cavity that may have water in it that could freeze. By leaving that hose un-clamped the antifreeze might not make it high enough to fill every void. I think the 720 will require 4 clamps to properly winterize. On the large black lines I use flat jaw vise grips, much easier. The I use the little jobbies on the clear and small black lines under the head pipe and lower drain. A freezing climate is not the place to cut corners on winterizing.

Could also be not enough fuel causing a lean pop, ignition timing not set correctly, faulty spark plug, lack of valve clearances or blocked jets in the carbs. Also Weak battery and blocked air filter will cause poor starting or lack of. If the bike has been stood for a long time then the fuel might have turned blocking the carbs but i doubt that, though it might be possible. With your poor starting you might of fouled the plugs in turn making it hard work to start. Take the plugs out and turn the engine over a few times this should force any unburnt mixture out the cylinders. clean your plugs and put them back in and try again

Hi, Nathan and the usual suspects are:
1. The front wheel or transmission drive unit has failed.
2. The drive unit tab is not properly indexed.
3. Broken speedometer cable.
4. The speedometer has failed.

They are available new for as little as $20ish US on ebay. I haven't seen a rebuild kit but for the price of a new unit it seems hardly worth the risk of it leaking after attempting to repair it.

Check the oil level. An oil change should be carried out anyway about every 6 months, and filter change every 12. All dependent on the amount of use it gets.

If you can bang the transmission into neutral and she rolls - the bottom end is seized up. If you can't get the transmission to go out of gear you have a gearbox problem. Found this on a Kawasaki forum that describes a similar situation to what you're experiencing - https://www.kawasakimotorcycle.org/forum/kawasaki-motocross-offroad/41961-kx65-engine-locked-up-im-going.html
