    Welcome aboard, Tiff!

    I'm surprised that it ran well after sitting for 8 years and not flushing out the carbs and fuel system.

    I would start by checking the battery voltage. Should be about...

    Welcome aboard, saxtonmi!

    I love the Ultra 150! Fun and maneuverable. If you do the trim mod to get more up, it's a lot more fun!

    There are some things you really need to check on/do to it: ...

    Perfectly normal for the exhaust and heads to be cold on the hose and warm on the water.

    Non-OEM carb parts, I guess you didn't replace the fuel rail O-rings. Did you clean out the fuel rails and...

    I rode one once, for about 3 minutes. It was the most miserable excuse for a JetSki I ever saw. So slow and so boring. It made my WR-500s look like fun.

    I figured that this was Kawasaki's...

    Welcome aboard, Waverider!

    Tell us about your carb overhaul. Did you replace any parts? Did you use genuine Keihin parts? Did you clean the internal filters? Did you replace the O-rings on the...

    Not unusual, unfortunately. The expansion chamber is a common place for corrosion to occur, as well as the water pipe between the cylinders.

    I'd just get it welded. Use a pick to find the rest...

    No need to turn it on it's side. 4 nuts on the back, and 2 screws that go up through the ride plate, along with associated hoses and cables.

    Hopefully it will come off without a fight.

    I'm planning to follow Ultra 15f's lead and build one of these things. I've got a hull, I've got an engine, I've picked up a blown crankcase from Smokeysevin for test...

    Running it lean is a sure fire way to burn up the engine. Do a compression test to see if any damage has already occurred. Post pictures of the firing ends of the spark plugs. Plan to overhaul the...

    Glad you got it out OK.

    I had trouble with spark plug boots a year ago and the only thing I had available to put on them was Teflon pipe thread sealant. It seems to be working quite well.

    Sounds like it's not getting fuel. Plugged injectors, perhaps?

    Could be a problem with the rebuilt EMM or something.

    I'm not the one to ask about performance mods. Of course, higher compression will give you more power.

    As far as temps, the cylinders don't all run the same. That's why some engines have...

    Perhaps you're right. They don't give an overheat indication until you slow down, then the pisser stops flowing.

    Could be water getting in there. Looks like the cylinder is in pretty good shape. Time for a top overhaul.
