    If the motor is stock then you will have issues getting aftermarket carbs to dial in just right especially if they are 44 or 46mm. Those are in the $600 range. You could sell them and get some stockers for about $175 and have some $ left over for paint.

    Yea if its got $600 aftermarket carbs, I doubt the motor is stock unless he had no idea what he was doing.

    Have you had the ski running at all?

    sell the carbs, make some money and then look for a cleaner hull with no motor or a shot motor for 500 or so and start swapping... not a fan of painting hulls..
