    Carb priming

    Has anyone ever tried a primer bulb like an outboard boat motor has on the fuel line from the tank?? I would like to do this if it can be done, I don't want to toss my chokes. By the way, I have 2 '94 SL 750's. I know it works great on boat motors, and they suck alot more fuel through them than a 750 does. Just wanting to make sure it wouldn't increase the chance for a lean condition. As many opinions possible would be much appreciated.

    Primer bulb was stock on the 1992 Fuji 650 engines

    Seems to work just fine...

    Thanks K447. This should really cut down on lengthy cranky after hauling to the lake. You couldn't tell me where would be the best place to locate the primer bulb could ya??

    The 92 650 had it between the fuel filter and the pump.

    Watcon has them and many of the watercraft websites that are linked here have them. Yes they work just fine.
