    Cold Water and Carbs SXR 800

    Learnt something about my jet ski. The last two times out has been cold water (mid 40s and air in the mid 60s). I developed a real bad hesitation when letting off and reapplying throttle. I thought I might have to rebuild carbs and fuel pump. I richened up high and low speed screws 1/8 of a turn. That fixed it. It was great today (43F air and water). I might have been a little lean all along. I switched from 60:1 to 43:1 and the carbs still had there stock settings. Summer was fine.

    Cold air is more dense than warm air, hence it requires more fuel.

    The cold water seemed to be acting alone. I guees the incoming air charge was being cooled and causing a leaner A/F ratio.
