    Ran out of gas, now ski does no run well?

    Yesterday my friend took out my gp1200 and it ran out of gas, i got it back to the dock, when i filled it up today and took it out to the river, it started up fine, idles fine, but when i hit the gas it just bogs down and turns off... if i feather the gas, it will pick up and then go about 40mph (5-6 rpm). I got it back, checked compression, 115 across, gets good spark, tried new plugs, nothing.. what should i check next? i am guessing its a fuel problem..

    Fuel filter may be cloged from possible debri in the bottom of the tank when it was ran dry.

    Thanks for the reply guys, after checking the filter i went to take off the carbs and one of the fuel hoses came off as it was the only one with no zip tie on it.. pretty coincidental that it happened right when it ran out of gas.

    After wrenching on stuff for the last 27 years, I've learned that coincidental stuff like this happens more often than we would think. Hopefully your ski will be running back up to 100%.
