I need help in MIAMI....!
I am wondering if any of you guys live in the Miami area and are mechanicaly inclined to do a carburator rebuild. I am not really sure if it's the carbs or the filters, but it wont accelerate past 3000 rpms withough bogging and turning off. Now it does not even start. Its a 1200 XLT.
I was recommended to Tim but have not been able to schedule anything with him. I would prefer to have someone local to help me do it ( With Pay ) so I can learn, or just someone to do it and let me watch.
Please help me on this one since it has been down for about 2 weeks now, and my other ski is down too Post or call 305-724-3917...

If you can take the carbs out you can rebuild them. Billie
posted all the info on your other thread. The parts can be
purchased from this site, or Riva is right down the road
Really they are very simple.

Just to make sure your problem isn't something else before you take off the carbs I would do the following 1st (these activities address the 2 most common problem areas for your ski). From the description of the symptoms there is a good chance the problem may not be the carbs.
1) do a compression check
- charge you battery
- unplug all 3 spark plug wires
- remove 1 plug
- install decent gauge
- hold throttle fully open
- turn over motor with a fully charged battery
- repeat all 3 cylinders
You are looking for the compression to be in the 110 to 120 range with all 3 cylinders having a similar value
next repeat process with the PVs open, to do this
- disconnect the electrical wires that go the the servo motor by disconnecting the black connector
- manually rotate the PV control arm to open the valves
- repeat above (facing the front of the ski rotate it counter clockwise)
- again you are looking for all 3 values to be slightly lower than with valves closed and all 3 values to be similar
2) if the ski still has a Catalytic Converter installed then I would remove that section of the exhaust pipe and inspect the Cat for damage - they often literally fall apart and then pieces end up in the waterbox
- to remove exhaust see you other thread for the removal instructions that another forum memeber posted the link for
after doing these 2 steps then you might remove carbs and rebuild them
