    1993 Polaris SL 650 fuel

    Hey everyone,
    I just put my jet ski back together. It has been sitting for about 3 years. I took my jet ski to a near by pond to test it out before I take it to the lake. It is pretty hard to start but when it does, it will run pretty good. When I start to give it gas, it does okay as long as I don't give it much gas. When I give it more gas it will cut out. What could it be? I cleaned out the carbs. Could I have a hose on wrong? Thanks

    Hard to start, doesn't respond well to throttle.

    Did you use genuine Mikuni carb rebuild kits?

    Check pop-off pressures? Set carb screws per Polaris specification?

    Correct spark plugs?

    Trimmed spark plug wires?

    Well it will start when I give it gas. I did not rebuild the carbs. I did open them up to see it any trash or anything was in there. What is pop-off pressure? Sorry 1st jet ski. I am pretty sure that the spark plugs are right. I heard someone saying these type of jet ski was bad for this. They said I need to put something else on it to get the gas to pump right on it. Have you heard anything about it? Thanks!!

    Start here ==> If you just bought a Polaris PWC, what should you do first?
