    The nipples appear to be fine. From what I understand the hose clamps are there just to hold the line on. Not to seal it. Which means to me the line is too stiff to seal against the petcock nipples....

    I did do a WOT run for about ten seconds or so. I have about 4 hours on it now since the complete rebuild so I figured it was safe to try it. I hit 7200 rpms and 56.86 mph. That was using an app on...

    I am testing the petcock valve for leaks. It is leaking out of where the fuel line connects to the valve. I tightened the hose clamp as tight as I can and it is still leaking some. I cut an inch off...

    I am out on the water now. I ran the reserve fuel line from the tank directly to the fuel filter. It is running great with no air bubbles in the fuel line. Here is a shot of the new plugs with about...

    It is looking like this Sunday might be my last shot at a water test for the season. I am planning on connecting the reserve line from the tank directly to the fuel filter. I will then remove the...

    I will only do it for test purposes.

    If I remove the petcock valve and cap it off I should be able to pressure test it to see if it is leaking. I am planning on doing that while I have the...

    I will try that. It is strange that the petcock seemed to test fine when I had it out of the ski but I didn't pressure test it so maybe that is the issue. I am disappointed that this is happening...

    When I had it off the ski I tried blowing compressed air through it in both positions and it seemed to work as it should. When set to on air only flowed out of the input and the on output. When set...

    I did and they both looked clean and in good condition.

    I just got back from the water. It seems to be running great but I definitely have an issue with the fuel system. The fuel light came on so I switched to the reserve. It ran fine at first but it died...

    I might grab an Ultra 150 then so I can compare the two. $1,500 for one with less than 100 hours and a trailer is a deal but I am not ready now to grab another ski. I want to make sure the one I have...

    Is the antifreeze necessary if I am going to store my ski in a garage that won't drop below freezing? I assume no.

    When you say "standard pump gas" you mean gas with ethanol in it correct? I know you live in CT and I live in RI. I haven't seen non ethanol gas anywhere in New England. I have seen it down south but...

    I can easily see how that would happen. Lol. I'll try to hold off for now but I'll keep my eyes and ears open for a great deal during the off season. I've wanted two skis from the beginning so I mine...

    Want a good laugh? There is a guy fairly close to me selling an Ultra 150 with 75 hours on it. He is selling it for $1,500 with a trailer. Now that I know how to rebuild these things I am tempted to...

    I'm gonna hold off touching the pilot screws until I receive the orings. I'll remove the carbs when I decide to do it. Not sure what I am looking at yet. Once I know I can probably adjust them in the...

    I placed an order with them. I had to order over $10 worth so I ordered some of the needle seat/fuel rail orings as well just in case I ever need them. I am planning on running it the way it is for...

    You don't have a hose hook up inside the hull near the cylinder heads?

    I am also curious how to winterize one of these. I have a 2002 STX-R that I want to winterize as well. I'll be keeping mine...

    Awesome. Thank you!

    I'm gonna order them so I can check the pilot jets. I would like to know before I winterize it if that is the cause of the slight hesitation.

    Where can I get three of the 2.8mm x 1.2mm o-rings for the pilot/low speed adjustment? What material should they be made of?

    I can't find them anywhere. OEM only seems to sell them with a...

    The fuel pump I got from Jetskisolutions came with four o-rings. Two for each hole on the back of the pump. They told me to stack them. The reason is the stock o-rings are proprietary and very...

    Do you know if the oring for the pilot adjuster is the same as the one for the float valve? I found the part number for the pilot assembly but it doesn't list the oring separately. I assume it is the...

    I am planning on installing three new plugs before I ride it again. I will definitely be checking them before I go WOT.

    I understand the importance of having the correct prop. That is why I sent...

    Since the season is almost over I won't have many more chances to break it in unless I get a wet suit. Lol.

    I have over an hour on it now. I'll put another hour on it before I go WOT.

    This is...

    When can I do a WOT top speed run? Just for about 30 seconds or so. I want to see what it tops out at with this stock prop so I can give impros that information so they can repitch my Solas impeller....
