    GPR bogs down when turning hard right...

    So I turn hard right on my GPR, and it bogs down bad...this happened to anyone else? No problems turning hard left, just right. It's got to be something with the carbs, maybe they're getting starved for fuel? I just noticed this since I don't do a ton of "carving"; mostly straightline speed runs and cruising with the wife...

    any thoughts? thx!

    It is a possibility that the carbs are starved. Try going to the reserve line when this starts to happen. If the problem goes away, then you have your answer.

    The only difference between your "ON' and "RESERVE" is the reserve line dips futher down into the tank. The fix would be to either remove the dip tube and attach some fuel line to the ends of the dip tube to get closer to the bottom of the tank, or ride with 1/4 or more tank level all the time.

    This could be one of a few reasons why the boat bogs.

    Duh, didn't think of that...this problem is happening even on a near-full tank though. I need to get in there and check the fuel lines for clearance issues, my dad seized his #3 cylinder running on reserve a few years back...
