    got a bad day for my skii... i think i need to pull my carbs and needs cleaning..

    i came from the beach today... and guess what, don't have middle throttle and high throttle, good idle no problem, starts fine... no matter how i tried to turn the speed screws, won't help, its like a fuel starvation, its like the need valves stuck up and won't open, sometimes, skii will rev up, but after awhile, it bugs and stays at the idle, or it will die if you force it at middle throttle, after i pull the plugs, i got a bad white color plug on my mag cylinder, white means, overheat, no gas.. will remove the carbs tomorrow, to check the mag carb... =(

    ok, the settings are right,.., skii runs good more response... =) thanks xlint, now i know what is the other problem, why when i tried to start my skii, sometimes it won't start, iv been observing the fuel from the tank, and when the engine is off, the gas will return to the tank, hmmm.... leaking somewhere.... will check tomorrow...

    sorry if you cant understand... let me re-phrase.. =) gas from the tank, i can see it from the transparent hose going thru my fuel-water separator---> pump -->>> carburetor,... and i have observed that the fuel from tank to water separator is slowly going back to the tank,causing hard start, or won't start.. when i shut-off the engine... is this normal? or it should hold the fuel even of how many hours not running?
