    This is a quote from a Group K technical article.

    Inlet Signal Part 2 - Many 2-cycle pwc engines (Yamaha 1200s included) employ the use of intake manifold cross-over channels to improve the smooth-ness of low speed carburetion. These cross-overs work very effectively for stock engine platforms. However on a setup built for high rpm output, these cross-overs can significantly reduce inlet signal at high rpm. This reduction in high rpm signal is not a problem for stock engines, however it can cause uneven “full throttle” fuel metering on a high rpm modified platform. In testing we’ve done on other modified pwcs, we have found that simply blocking off these inlet manifold cross-over channels can yield a big improvement in the accuracy of fuel metering during extended full throttle passes.
