I think that I F'd up today
So i got the trusty ol' 96XP out and let the GF ride it. I trade her skis and noticed that its running like crap like fuel starvation. Im thinking great...i just rebuilt the carbs and changed the fuel lines. I also noticed that I forgot to take the zip tie off the water line that runs to the exhaust from the bottom of the cases from being winterized. back with news in a couple hours and see what I F'd up today. Im hoping its not going to be a top end job

apparently Im a moron...I think that I got in a rush when I did this and for got to tidy up some things. I missed 3 zip ties and the seal for the water seperator is missing. I thought that I had water in the bottom of the ski today but after i popped the seat I realized how lucky I am to be here right now...a shiot ton of fuel in the bottom of the ski!Just need a new seal and I think that will solve my problems...hope I can find one at Lowes tomorrow

we (lowes) do carry orings. however, none of which are rated to be fuel safe as they are meant for faucets. also,the store that i work for does not carry correct size. that may be different for you though airbourne as you are in a different region than me. i guess it wouldnt hurt to look if your willing to use a non-fuel safe oring. just trying to save you some time and effort.

For others who may read this thread later, it serves as a reminder of how easily we can turn our PWC into something very dangerous, without even realizing it.
Take the time to go step by step through the de-winterization process. Have a check list of the things that need to be done before it is water ready.
Check steering, reverse, throttle linkages, etc.
Check all the safety equipment (fire extinguisher, horn, light, whatever). Check the ropes.
At the launch ramp, start it up still strapped to the trailer and backed down the ramp in the water. Confirm it is running properly with the seat off. Check for fuel leaks, oil leaks, water leaks, exhaust leaks.
