    I found it interesting as well. I assume the cutouts in the rubber boot don't match up with the cutouts in the carbs for fire arresting reasons. i assume they have them be 180 degrees out so if there...

    I took it apart today. The two cut outs definitely belong at the bottom. There is a tab inside the airbox and a cutout in the rubber part to keep it in that position. The top of the airbox does not...

    That is definitely what they are. Thanks!

    I just looked it up in the manual and it appears that mine are installed properly with the slits at the bottom. It appears they only go in one way. I am going to finish winterizing the ski tomorrow....

    So the cutouts that are now at 6 o'clock should be at 12 o'clock correct? I am not sure what you mean by "should face the exhaust pipe".

    I was winterizing my ski for the winter and ran into a few random issues. Most of the issues were just me dropping parts into the abyss. I had to remove the seat latch/grab handle because one of the...

    A member here text me that I am still running lean. He recommends me going up on the main jets 5 sizes. I assume he means from 165 to 170. Does anyone know the exact main jet these carbs use? I found...
  8. Your plugs look perfect to me.

    Your plugs look perfect to me.

    Is it normal for the CDI to have that glass looking material imbedded in the epoxy/silicone that seals the CDI when it is manufactured?

    There are no signs of water intrusion or corrosion inside...

    I haven't had much time to ride it unfortunately. I did take it out for about an hour this past Saturday. It seems to be running perfectly. I took a pic of the plugs after the ride. Cylinder one has...

    I actually just got around to opening the CDI box this past Saturday. It is dry inside and appears to be in perfect condition. I don't know what the rough white stuff is though. It looks almost like...

    After exchanging messages with SeawardToast I am going to open up the CDI box to take a look at the condition. I've never opened it to inspect it. I'll post some pics once I get it open. Hopefully...

    I imagine the 150 is even more fun than the STX-R for that. Maybe this winter I'll get started on rebuilding the 150 I picked up with all the parts. It will be a total rebuild it looks like but it is...

    If I was to replace something ignition related what would that be?
  15. I appreciate that info. I've never done it for...

    I appreciate that info. I've never done it for that long. Now that I know it can cause the engine to overheat I will be sure to not do it for long periods. It sure is fun though! :)
  16. Thanks for reading and following! I know this...

    Thanks for reading and following! I know this thread has become extremely long. I appreciate anyone who reads it all and tries to help.

    That is a very interesting thought about the ignition. I...

    PWC Engines rebuilt my crank. They are in NY. Here is a link: https://pwcengine.com/kawasaki-ultra-150-stxr-rebuilt-crankshaft/

    With the starter removed you can turn the motor in both directions. With the starter installed it will only spin in one direction.

    That does sound horrible. Any chance the counter shaft bearings...

    I agree but since I am not 100% positive it is safe to do I don't want to recommend it. Plus it does increase the compression reading so the results won't be accurate.

    Are you sure noise is coming from the motor and not the pump? Since you said it spins fine without the plugs installed I assume the noise is coming from the motor. Does it run or is the noise your...

    I would start off by recharging the battery. Then remove the spark plugs and turn the motor over with the fuel off. I recommend doing that just in case the motor filled with gas or oil while sitting...

    I wanted to mention that I did check the compression with the motor running using the O'Reilly's tester. It measured much higher with the motor running. It was hitting about 160 psi with the motor...

    I just took it out for a quick ride. I did about 10 WOT runs but for no longer than 5 seconds each. It seems to be running perfectly. Triple pissers all feel like the same temperature. I checked the...

    I picked up another compression tester from O'Reilly's. It is similar to the Snap On tester. The Schrader valve is in the hose that connects to the head. The gauge doesn't have a hose on it. Just the...
