    The service manual lists the compression ratio as 12:1.

    Have you ever tested your 1050's compression before? Or have you tested the
    compression of a ski, and you didn't know what the spec was?

    Pink zip ties drive me crazy!

    I thought it was important that customers could not tell if I had just worked
    on their ski. So I used new Oetiker clamps when I removed one. I used Yamaha
    zip ties...

    The SLTX carbs have 3 jets, and these carbs are the hi-performance Keihin

    If you have the right Keihin carbs, you can add some real arm jerking acceleration
    with a simple carb mod.

    A few yrs of the 1050 came with CDK2 carbs with a mid-range circuit. If you drill
    out...

    It may work without a change, if there is a very low idle.

    Or you could set the idle speed to '0' and leave it shut until the engine kicks, then crack the throttle.

    That is not a problem.

    Hard starting is the most common carburetor problem on all of the 2 stroke watercraft

    Stock pop-off was 76psi, I don't recall it being too high. I am certain
    it ran just fine for a long time on that pop-off.

    So what has changed?

    Occasionally, I have rebuilt carbs with stuck...

    That is a misconception. The seat doesn't open because of pop-off pressure.
    It opens because atmospheric pressure pushes it open, with help from manifold
    and or ported vacuum. That is why vacuum...

    Your engine was just loaded up, so the goop is just water and gas that
    came out of the exhaust ports.

    Whatever you do, don't use starting fluid on that ski.

    Were those the 1050 carbs that were equipped with 3 jets?
    (the 3rd jet was a mid-range circuit) If so they are easily modified
    for more acceleration.

    That is very common, and pop-off is not the problem. Your needle and seat
    is not opening! You have a vacuum leak or the engine has a problem with
    producing manifold vacuum.
