    Is there something that can be causing it to limit my rpms?

    I have changed fuel lines and and tried plugs as well.

    I live in the middle of Kansas and there aren't many mechanics who work on skis in these parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated...
    We will need some more information and work through some diagnostics.

    On the trailer does the engine rev easily to the redline?

    Out of the water run the engine for 20 seconds or so, then shut it down. Are both cylinders equally warm?

    What spark plugs are you using?

    Do the dash gauges work? Any red light or warnings?

    Have you checked cylinder compression? Both spark plugs out, throttle held wide open.

    Yes on the trailer revs fine. Both cylinders are warmafter starting it for 20 sec. All gauges work and the warning light works but is not signaling.
    I have not checked the compression yet will do that and get back with u.
