    Help with the worst jetski ever.

    I have tried almost all on my jet-ski but nothing. It doesn't want to turn on if it is not with starting fluid. After it starts the gas flow is good when accelerating. But when cold no gas is been throw at the carburetor to make it turn on. it just keep on cracking. Help please. I put it on factory setting and then this started happening. Is a Polaris SLX 780 1996

    I check carbs and they look clean and i have no idea what they been before i change them.... I believe I'm screw now. there no gas coming out when i crack it. But if i add starting fluid it will start and when accelerating it will throw gas. what screw do i have to open so that when i crack it it throw more gas.

    I try the choke and there is no use. the only way is by putting starting fluid then it will turn on because the fuel lines start throwing. Maybe i have to open the low screws more ?

    Also is there anyone living in tampa, fl that can help me? im about to set this thing on fire lol

    you need to go threw the carbs again and look at the jets as well.. im no carb expert at all but that seems to be part of your issue..


    how long does it stay running when you use starting fluid? if you need too start your ski i recomend using 40:1 pre mix downt he carbs


    also what is your compression on all three cyls? throttle wide open cold motor and battery above 10.6 v while cranking?

    definitely i need someone to check it cause i have no tools to fix this. I have nothing to check the compression with. and it use to turn perfect before changing it to factory default. But it was boging on water. meaning that if i press the gas it will turn off.
