    Do a compression test first. Then maybe try pressure testing the engine. You may have an air leak from the crank seal.
    If all of that checks out, you may need to rebuild the carbs.

    I donít know if weak spark is your issue. Thatís not a common thing we see on these.
    The Thumb-o-meter compression gauge isnít good enough. Do a real compression test and post the results.

    Most waterproof boat fuel gauges are something like 33 full-240 empty ohms. I believe Yamaha waverunner gauges are 9-800 ohms.

    The finger throttle just clamps onto the handlebar. So you should be able to loosen it and adjust it around to a comfortable position. And you probably could figure out a way to convert it to a thumb...

    Hereís what kills a 2 stroke Jetski engine: lack of oil and lean air/fuel mixture.
    Oil: keep the oil injection system in tip-top shape. The hoses are the weak point. They get hard and fall off the...
