    Help ski keeps bogging down

    Hey guys just cleaned out my carbs put everything back to gather and took it out on the water today. Ran it for about 10 mins then it started to bogging down at low speed. I pulled out the choke alittle and went full throttle and it ran good went back to idle bogs down again. So what i have is it runs good at full throttle but not at low speeds and i have to keep the choke on to get it to full throttle. Any suggestions.

    Thanks guys!

    How did it run before you worked on the carbs? Obviously, it sounds like it's not getting enough fuel. Pulse lines secured?

    I don't know what the 'official' initial settings are. I usually set the Hi speed needles to about 1-1/2 - 1-3/4; Lo speed needles to 1-1/4 - 1-1/2.

    NEVER tighten a mixture screw. Turn it in until it barely seats, then back it out.
