    Jet ski running fine on the trailer and poorly in the water is a very common problem. You need to make sure each plug has spark, fuel, and compression. A jet ski will rev up and sound fine on the...

    Oh yeah, those brass fittings that have the proper restrictors are not something you find at the hardware store. I stole a lot of fittings off of the stuff you gave me, saved me yet again (thank...

    It is now. The guy actually ran quarter inch hose off the cooling manifold, but he couldn't get the 1/4in lines onto the head pipes so he left the 3/8th hose there and used a plastic adapter to...

    I pulled out the micrometer. All these 1/4in hose fittings this guy before me put on everything don't actually measure .25 inches. They are more like .15in if they fit 1/4 in hose. I got some proper...

    That's what I thought. I had some luck before with vinegar, but it had to sit for a while soaking. I think it depends on what's clogging it. I already have them off and tried blowing through them....

    Alright, I've done this before and I think I'll do it again. I don't like muriatic acid because it's pretty strong, isn't good for cast iron (I think that's what the head pipes are), and it can mess...

    Alright, I'm back from my test ride. Probably got a good 30 to 45 minutes of riding, enough to get that fuel gauge down.

    After a while, it would still bog down like it used to, but only for a...

    Well it's already back up and put together. I reverse flowed the pipes after removing the fittings on the inlet side and ran each pipe for a good 5 to 10 minutes while shaking them around. Basically...

    IT RUNS! The pipes being clogged was a major problem! It's almost entirely fixed!

    It ran great for a good 15 to 20 minutes, no bog. It only took about 5 or 10 before.

    I usually run Wiseco pistons, LA Sleeve if things are bad, and cometic gasket kits. All of them make parts to order if they don't have them, so they will always be available. Some people don't like...

    Ok cool, top pipe I pulled off is so clogged with sand in the water jacket that I can't get the air compressor to blow it out. I hate this guy so much. :facepalm:

    I was thinking there's something wrong with how the guy ran the water lines, and was going to just pull some of the pipes and pressure test while I was at it.

    I've been searching but I couldn't...

    It runs much better until the pipes get hot. Adding the jet works valve didn't help, the pipes are still getting hot. They sizzle when it starts to run bad. I think the way this guy ran the cooling,...

    There just needs to be one going from to the line that feeds the bow inlets for the pipes, right?

    For what it's worth, the guy who ran these didn't run it with 7 openings. He ran two to each...

    I got in a water test, runs a lot better. Still bogged down when making a left hand turn, but after a little bit it cleaned itself out and started running right. I think part of the problem is that...

    I built my own pop off pressure tester with a bicycle pump and some tubing. First one was not very good. Hopefully I can make more progress tonight.

    Definitely a leaker.

    I'm interested to see if it can work. I imagine you lose at least 100 pounds going to a two stroke.

    I've never been a Kaw couch person but I bet finding some 1100/1200 two stroke and putting...

    It won't literally blow up. It will just seize and damage the cylinder walls and stop running right. The warning signal for you to stop running your ski before this happens is already showing. If...

    Only way you to know you are going to get a good ski is if you buy from someone you trust and someone you know. I've heard plenty of stuff from people who were 100% wrong or even blatantly lying to...

    If you ever add choke and it runs better it's too lean. That carb is probably filthy and not delivering enough fuel.
