    97' wb2 Bogging down

    Hey Guys,

    So I bought a 97' wb2 and just got around to getting it running. Has 160+ in each cylinder. So it has not ran since 2009, I pulled the carbs, cleaned, new diaphram and put back in ski. New battery and off to the lake to test it. So I get it started and will stay idling, hit the throttle and dies. So I checked the carb specs and had the low at only 1 turn out, hi was 1/2 turn. I opened up the low end to about 1.5 turns maybe a bit more and also the hi speed out some also ( didnt realize it should of been 1 3/4 out to start then the 1/4 turn ) so it will run a little better, take it out and it bogs down the whole time, no getup and go, maybe 25-30 mph ( these are clean carbs ) It will slowly creep to that speed, then you can wot and it just keeps the same bogged down speed. I have clear fuel lines, getting fuel fine. New plugs, no different. So I know the carbs were not 100% on, but after I turned them out, it was close to factory pecs and still not at all running right. Almost sounds flooded but I had to turn the low screw out to even get it to stay running. It will start right up, but that about it. So does this ski ( sorry im a seadoo person ) have reeds and could that be the problem? Getting while smoke from exhaust like normal, pump has plenty of push, pisser shoots 10' in the air. Oh and I pulled all the old gas out, out of lines and the carbs, so fresh same day fuel ( az gas still sucks ) So what am I missing? Is it the carbs settings after all or what? Thanks guys for any help !!!


    Update:

    So I went out and pulled the carbs, set them right, lol and also took a mirror and looked into the area where the reeds are ( ok, so I mow know, there are reeds, ha ) and they look new, or at least the same as the clear white ones for sale. I didnt see any tears or anything, bit also only saw the one side....... Are the reeds even an option as to what the problems is?

    Check voltage on the battery while at idle and on the throttle. If the regulator crapped and the voltage is too high it causes very strange electrical/ignition related issues.
