    97 Polaris SLT 780 Carb Issue

    Hello, I had a carb rail on this machine that was rebuilt and the middle carb seemed to blow a lot of fuel upward. I recently bought a used triple carb set up and rebuilt those with Mikuni kits, The middle carb on this set is doing the same thing. Why is it an issue with the middle carb?

    IT's not an issue on the middle carb. Have you looked at your reeds? Broken reed petals can allow fuel from the crankcase to spit back through the carbs....

    No I have not, but its my last option I guess, I took on water due to leaving plug out at the beginning of season, hasn't ran right since

    This engine has been rebuilt from the crank up, the carbs are rebuilt. the other ski I have has been completely rebuilt also, I just added a 6 vane stator on the other ski. does it change how the ski feels? when riding?
