Check the fuses! I have two 900zxi's brand new batteries and brand new plugs,

Fuses are in the electrical box under a black cap(depending on model)

SOURCE: Overheating YAMAHA XLT 1200 jet ski

you may have something clogged in a water passage but more than likley u have a bad sensor the sensor is located on the main exhuast if you go on the right side of the ski and look in the engine compartment it will be located at 9 oclock u will see it sticking out of the exhuast with one wire comming out after u run the ski and the buzzer goes off pull the seat and see if the engine is really hot if u can not touch it will be hot but it has to be very hot for the sensor to pick it up if u can touch the motor and exhuast it is a bad sensor

sounds like either your fuel pump has gone out or engine has possibly skipped some teeth on the timing chain. make sure u have fuel pressure going into throttle body assy or if you have good hearing, you should be able to hear the fuel pump running for about 5 sec if u just tap the starter. also need to make sure youve got no water in the tank, so the easiest thing for u to check on your own would be to cut off the hose clamp at fuel rail and put the hose into a clear glass jar and tap starter. if it fills up then its probably not a pump, but if the fuel looks cloudy then you got water on there.

2004 waverunner fx cruiser, ran great last time out. Now hard to start and wont run on high speed. Nothing over 6 mph.

How old is the fuel? Ethanol causes major problems if left too long. You may need to empty the fuel and clean out the fuel system. Try changing the fuel filter and adding some seafoam to the fuel and running seafoam thru the fuel system. Hopoe this helps.
