    Took the 900 out yesterday

    I have been waiting for my bearings to come in to put my pump back together on the kawi before I took the skis out but could not wait any longer. So I took the 900 to the river and it ran pretty good. I forgot the GPS I was getting good top speed around 60-61 on the dreamometer at about 6400 rpms. I guess i should be hitting closer to 66-6700 rpms. I was also messing with the take off bog that I have always had. I had the lows set at stock 5/8's turn out with the caps centered. I turned the lows to the limiter (I guess another 1/8 out. It seemed to get worse so I took it back the other way so it would be closer to 1/2 turn out. It did help at 1/2 turn out. I am a little worried about turning it in anymore. I guess I need to check piston wash. I think im going to have to bite the bullet and purchase a ignition update kit.

    Are you talking about the low speed screws?

    If so, you don't really have to worry about wash or leaning the lows out too much.

    Your low speed screws are just to get a good idle speed, and good take off. If go go too lean, she'll bog. No worries about piston damage with low speed screws.

    Yes I'm talking about the low speed screws. That makes sense. Learn something new every day so you can theoretically close the low speed screws and be fine you just won't have any low end power?

    You won't likely idle then.

    The low screws are to get a steady idle AND help take off.
