    Love my new Pro 1200s but flood real easily

    So, I have 2 new (to me) Pro 1200s and to say that I have fallen in love would be an under statement. I have had them out on the lake 5 times in the last 8 days and I just can't get enough of them. Awesome power and that Ferarri red gives them such presence on the lake.

    They both run like a dream but both flood really quickly. If I kill the engine to take a swim (or I get flipped off mid-ride), starting them up again can be an ordeal. Sometimes I have to wait 6-10 minutes before they will restart. Is this common or is there something I can do to sort them out (e.g. re-jetting)?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank guys.

    Nice skis! To me it sounds like something is letting fuel in the carbs like a bad needle and/or seat. Sound as if you have good fuel pressure and it's leaking in somewhere while it's sitting warm. I'd have a look at the carbs after you go for a ride and look down the venturi's to see if fuel is dripping. My $.02 worth.

    Thanks for the quick replies!

    Rdizz: Yeah, fun with a capital "F" for sure! I don't have any gray fuel lines. I am running 93 octane fuel and Polaris Premium Blue Blend Semi-Synthetic oil. The engines run like a dream - no bogging or hesitation, no detonation and idle perfectly.

    Cwag: Thanks. I appreciate your $.02 worth! I think I'll have the needles replaced anyway. How do I check the seat? Something I can get my mechanic to do when he changes the needles for me?

    If you're buying carb rebuild kits they will have the needles and seats in them. Good luck.

    I found with mine when cool a little bit of choke no throttle until you hear it start to fire then give it enough to get it going. When you hear it just try to fire if it does not run right away non't just give it more gas stop and start over again starter until it fires then pump throttle to get it going. The 5 years I rode it that was the way to do it. If I tried to give it gas and run the starter it would flood big time. Just my two cents.

    Keith, could you link him to the jumper wire bulletin? He could check to see if they have it to eliminate that as a problem.

    Check the carbs for dripping, it should be easy to see. Possibly post some pics of the carbs, we can tell you if they are stock carbs.

    If they are not dripping,you should see if this has been done http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...8&postcount=22

    The symtoms might be what you are dealing with.
