Remove the fuel
First up sorry if this has been discussed before. Just a quick one.
I filled up an FZ last Sunday the day after we had massive flooding in the area. I hadnt taken that Ski out again until today and after about 20 mins it started to idle really rough. Its seems to be ok at around 5000 rpm but surges a bit.
So I'm thinking water got in the fuel but very open to any other suggestions. Anyway I'd like to get the fuel out. Can someone help me with the easiest way pls. Should I just siphon from where it goes in?
Thankyou in advance

Thanks for your reply FZR N,
I tried that and there was no water in there. I'm thinking its not a great deal of water or it may not run at all?
Do you think the seperator pick up just a small amount?

the separator only gets water from the breather not from what is in the tank
i think if you had water in the fuel the ski would have stopped , it may be just coincidence or the fuel is just not up to scratch whack in some 98 octane and see how it goes
ps. for geting some fuel out to check for water take off the inspection cover (black ruber thing on top of tank) put your siphen hose all the way to the bottom of the tank take some fuel out and put it in a glass container and check for water or other sediment

doesn't sound like water to me but if you must do as he says^ as you would see the water in there. use your oil syphon sucker or a jiggler syphon.
