    How do you keep gas from sitting in your carbs without a fuel shutoff.

    My tripple has no way of shutting the fuel off so I can run the Novis dry.

    Try running a Gas Stabilizer in your fuel when you know you are going to put your ski up for the winter. Such as Sta-Bil or AMSOIL.

    I hope this helps.

    No not this time.

    When I bought the 99 these check valves burned down the motor after my first tank of gas I rebuilt the carbs after that.

    Heres a good check valve.

    I rebuild carbs every 2 years now just incase.

    I've determined that any used ski purchase should be followed by immediate removal of carbs for inspection before your first ride.

    Although I got a good price on my ski, I pulled my carbs before my first ride aside from my test ride and found one of my carb filters to be about 60% clogged.
