    '04 SXR running away?

    After flushing, I give the ski a couple revs to clear out the excess water. Last time out after flushing, idled fine on the hose. Shut off the water and gave it a rev to clear out the water and it seemeed to run away.However, it will shut down if I pull the lanyard unlike a typical run away engine .

    It's a repeatable process( turn off water, rev it , runs away).
    Rear plug had good color
    Front plug is lighter but only a couple tanks of gas on the plugs
    Gasket on front carb is warped, not sure if that means anything

    Any ideas? Thanks guys!

    It only does it if you don't have cooling water going to it?

    Reach down and see if the throttle arm is closing all the way when you let off the trigger.

    Yes, only when the cooling water is off.

    Throttle arm fully closes.
