  1. What to look for on 1999 LS2000

    I'm going to look at a 1999 LS2000 tomorrow that I hope to buy. The good is the owner says it's in great cosmetic shape and based on the pictures that appears to be true. The hull looks flawless as...

    About 3 years ago my father-in-law gave me a '99 Kawasaki STX 1110 with everything but the long block. I got lucky and found a used engine cheap, put in it and we've been enjoying it ever since. This...

    Bearings were replaced when I put the engine in at your suggestion. If my math is correct 50:1 ratio works out to 4.7 tanks of fuel to 1 tank of oil. That makes me feel better because I'd say I'm...

    Oil Use on 1999 STX 1100

    Can anyone tell me about how fast I should go through a tank of oil compared to tanks of gas on my 1999 STX 1100? I feel like when I fixed the ski up about 2 summers ago it would go through one tank...

    Unfortunately mine sits outside most of the year. When it get's put away for the winter I fog the carbs, cylinders and put fuel stabilizer it. I pull the battery and stick that on a tender on my work...

    Saw one on CL about 2 months ago that seemed to be in good condition for $1000. Wanted to buy it. Just looked like a fun toy.

    Here is what I wound up doing. I made new floats out of HDU sign foam. You can't take the bottom off the floats so I wound up cutting the old floats off and making the new floats in 2 pieces. I used...

    After testing it seems that the bottom float is my only issue. I painted it with clear nail polish but it didn't help. The float has enough flotation to float in gas by itself but it can't lift the...

    I have them sitting out now so it will get almost 48 hours before I have time to paint them.

    You can take the floats off. I had to do that initially to get this gauge cleaned up enough to work. I'm going to try painting one float with clear nail polish, inside and out and test that. It is...

    So I pulled the sensor out. By loosening the gas tank straps and pulling the tank forward you can get to the sensor pretty easy through the glovebox. I then put the sensor in a bucket of water while...
  12. 1999 STX 1100 Gas Gauge-Only works upside down?

    Ever since I got my '99 STX 1100 last year the gas gauge has not worked. It reads empty all the time with the warning light blinking. The strange thing is one time we flipped the ski last year and...

    Pennsylvania PWCs are $26 for 2 years. Paid $45 for an online boater certification course that's good for life.
  14. Just wanted to let everyone know we put the ski...

    Just wanted to let everyone know we put the ski in the water today and it worked well. I have almost nothing to compare this to but I'm really impressed with the acceleration and how well it handles...

    Not a bad idea. We have a neighbors private dock we'll use so it won't be an issue to do.

    I actually had the vacuum and return lines switched most of the time. When I realized that I thought I had it fixed but it really made no difference. It took changing the head gasket to get it...
  17. After looking at it again while running the water...

    After looking at it again while running the water is coming out of a hose/fitting above the impeller area. Is that normal or do I have a clog somewhere?
  18. I got it running. I was noticing some oil/gas...

    I got it running. I was noticing some oil/gas leaking down the cylinders from the head gasket area. I decided to pull the head to replace the gasket to see if that helped anything plus it gave me a...

    I don't get it. I put a new diaphragm and gasket in the fuel pump. After priming the fuel line a bit it started and ran for roughly 30 seconds till I let off the gas. After that I can't get it to...

    [/QUOTE]

    Thanks, I've already moved the tower forward about 6" to get the hull on the trailer more and because there was very little tongue weight. I might move it forward a little more but I need...

    I have a diaphragm kit and full carb rebuild kit on their way. I'll start by installing the new diaphragm and go from there. If it runs I'll just leave it as is for now an do the carbs over the...

    When I said steady I meant more like consistent. It's pulsing, not a constant vacuum.

    I pulled the return and feed lines off. I set up the feed in a IV looking setup with gas from a can and ran a...

    Sorry I missed that but it does have vacuum at that nipple. I don't have a gauge to put on it but it feels strong and steady. I sprayed a little soapy water on the blocked off fitting hoping that I...

    Yes there are snap rings on both sides of the oil pump and they were both the there. That shaft just needed tapped in about 1/16" and then the pump would seat correctly.

    There are 2 flappers in...

    I pulled the piece of the end of the carb where the fuel feed and return go of the carbs. I took it apart and couldn't really see anything wrong. There is a beige semi transparent diaphragm in there....
