    Just get the factory prop refurbished through SBT or Impros. No gains by adding a Solas unless you mod your motor. A Solas prop, however is more efficient at moving water over the stock prop, so if...

    I'd say after maybe 3 or 4 hours of operation. Takes less time for piston wash than it does to evaluate a spark plug.

    I use Evinrude Johnson engine tuner to clean my carbs. Works good, and won't attack the protective coating on the aluminum body.

    I use SuperTech in my 1200r. Always have. You need to replace your oil lines. Leave plenty of slack. Use 1/8 x 1/4 tygon, and oetiker clamps to cinch down. 800 carbs do not need to be rejetted....

    You're lucky it didn't run out of gas. The choke cable is attached to the bottom of the front carb. The exhaust has to come out to access it. While you're in there go ahead and rebuild the carbs...
