    One test for checking for a air leak is to completely close your throttle blades (turn out idle adjustment until not touching) and then see if it will start up and idle. As long as the carbs aren't...

    The ski is worth X amount. It cost X amount to repair, plus labor. The difference is rough value, to me anyways.

    Recent example, there is a local guy with a 04 FXHO with a "broke piston" that a...

    Simple answer: Just as Cutlass mentioned. No neutral on skis. And yours doesn't have reverse.

    Detailed answer:

    Your engine and jetpump are a 1:1 direct drive. There are no gears and no...

    I always reuse what springs were in the carbs. As long as pop off is still checked after rebuild.

    I think you are over complicating the situation. Especially when talking about a stock ski.

    At the end of the day, a stock ski doesn't/shouldn't need this. And if it does then there are other...

    Respectfully...I'm not buying that. We are talking about fuel injected engines here not old school carb'd 2-strokes. If your ski won't idle, there's something wrong. Forcing extra air into the...

    I've got a similar problem with a 99 Ultra 150. Pulled starter apart (aftermarket unit) and it looked brand new inside. Nothing out of ordinary but it doesn't spin by hand as I would expect compared...

    I'm not understanding what modifications have been made that would necessitate only a change in factory idle...aside from modifications that would also require a reflash/tune to other aspects beyond...

    I’ve used a screw to force “thread” in. And then pull on that. Same as extractor. Will destroy it.

    They are stamped on the bottom side. When rebuilding don't skip replacing the oring on them. They like to get hard and shrink over time causing a pop off that wont hold pressure.

    Personally, if the carbs are pulled and cleaned every 3-4 years the drilled return mod isn't needed. Setting carbs to factory settings and doing full rebuilds with genuine mikuni kits and new genuine...

    Correct on the rivets. They are not blind. You should be able to see/feel the back side in the lip of the gunwales.

    I would consider keeping most of your posts in this thread. Keeps things less...

    Just as Dave said.

    Only thing I will add is I would go ahead and replace the oil lines. They were prone to shrinking and popping off at the carbs.

    Also, is the compression tester you used a...

    First thing to do would be pull plugs, inspect each plug to see how its burning, and check compression on each cylinder. Whatever you do...DONT keep running it trying to "force" it to run right.

    Common occurrence for older skis with original wear ring housings. Especially when they are used in salt water. Shouldn't be too bad finding a replacement. You do have the option of going with a...

    Personally, I think I would've used the Yamalube until 10hr service. But that being said, I doubt you will have any issues keeping that in it.

    By oil amplifier are you meaning like a oil additive? I wouldn't think you would need anything special in the oil. It isn't like the old school hydraulic flat tappet cams in a small block chevy that...

    Do you happen to have one of the in-line spark testers? These can be used to rule out bad spark plugs and sometimes even weak coils. I've seen new plugs be bad before.

    For the paint polishing. Try a light cutting polishing compound to try and bring life back to the paint. Possibly the same for the over spray area.

    For that thru hull fitting, I am sure you can...
