    Why you should clean your carbs yearly....

    From a Seadoo 787 I rebuilt the 38/40 carbs on today.

    I rebuild my carbs every year, Just from the amount of ridding per year. Diaphragms stretch and the filters above get dirty!

    Yeah...96 GSX 787....I hate seadoos....and never like to work on them. They always seem to have extra "junk" to them. Yamaha's twins are so much simpler to work on...it does not take an hour to get the airbox off etc. This one has the grey fuel lines....and really surprised that he did not destroy the engine ..the carbs were NASTY!

    this is very common with seadoos
    the fix is to replace the fuel lines , all of them
    if you dont you will be replacing those filters very soon again
