    damn it helps when you put gas in it

    rebuilt the carbs last night put them on today. fired right up ran for a min then dies couldnt get it to come alive so i start think maye i fried a piston check compression 120 on all three. so i reset all the highs and lows agin still wouldnt run scrating my head i think well damn i sucked all the gas out of the thing last week haha put a few gallons in it and bam she came to life. i have a question tho it smokes a lot more then befor tho i set it like a 1/8 turn rich on all carb setting just to be safe so i dont burn a piston down can that casue it to smoke worse on a two stroke? i know it may smoke a little more but this is thick white smoke none stop it use to clear up some after a few mins not now tho

    How long are you running it on land?

    This is with a garden hose connection?

    Did you fog the engine or introduce extra 2-stroke oil?

    idk maybe ran it for like 2 or 3 mins and no it has triple pissers so i just hook to hose up to the water intake hose and remove the jet pump. and no it still has oil injection. i never really got to put it under a load tho and get into it so maybe it just has some oil built up in the cylinders. i didnt know if being a little rich would make it smoke. its not that rich tho still has very good throttle response no big any where in the rpm range from idel to wide open. maybe if i put it in the water and road it for awhile it will stop il think if it above 70 tomorrow ill go ride
