Thread: Pro 1200 Idle

    Pro 1200 Idle

    I am new to jet skis and searching for some info. I just purchased a 2000 Polaris Pro 1200 with 60 hrs on it. It hasn't been run much in the last year but starts and runs. The problem is it idles at about 3000rpm. The book states it should idle at about 1300rpm in the water. Is it normal to idle this high on the trailer and if not what are some possible causes. Also I have read that after sitting the carbs should be rebuilt, how hard is it to rebuild/sync the three carbs?
    Thanks for any help.

    Welcome

    On the trailer, idle can easily be twice the RPM that it would be when in the water.

    Click the link below for lots of useful info.

    Gummed or clogged carbs are a common cause of engine damage (lean burn eats holes through pistons), so you should consider rebuilding the carburetors, just to be sure they are clean internally.

    3000rpm outta water is WAAAAY to high. it should be about 1500 out of water. if you decide to rebuild the carbs, just know they are a pain. however, def worth the power you will get out of them. hopes this helps.
