    1997 SLT700 Wonít crank

    Hello all! Iím new to the forum and have read countless posts. I have recently purchased a 1997 slt700. I have been working on it for the past 4 days straight and I cannot seem to get it to run.

    Things I have done:

    compression both cylinders 120
    new plugs
    new gas
    rebuilt carbs
    new fuel lines
    checked the reeds
    new battery
    good spark

    It has definitely been worked on before. The carbs have been rebuilt before. It has a registration that expired in 2018. I have multiple diagrams so I know I have all of my fuel lines are in the right places. I am getting gas to the carbs. I think I have listed everything. It has been a head ache but I got it for a pretty good deal and since it is my first pwc I have enjoyed learning, but I am ready to go be in the water ripping!

    Welcome to GreenHulk.

    Do you mean "no start" ? Totally different from "no crank" where the engine does not spin at all.

    the engine does turn over. And will start if you put gas in the carbs.

    Could you post a picture of your carbs, to see fuel line routing ?

    The front carb will have the return to tank. It will be the furthest to the top of carb.
    The rear carb will have the supply hose, coming from the fuel switch. It will be the lowest hose attachment.
    The cent most position will be the pulse hose from the cases.

    Other then that, were pop-off springs changed during rebuild ? Needle arm heights set ?
