    Thumbs up Carb rebuild and new fuel lines question

    Hey guys, a few weeks back I picked up a pair of 97 SL 900's well I ran 1 1/2 tanks threw them and they run great besides a fluctuating idle when cold. Piston wash says they are way lean and the new plugs are wet with fuel. So am I correct in saying I need to clean out carbs? What is the best name brand rebuild kits, jetline, wsm? I have the 38mm cdkII carbs with no high speed needle I believe???? What size are the fuel and return lines? How may feet of lines per ski do i need?The skis are in storage 180 miles from me and I would like to buy everything and make one trip to rebuild. Thanks a lot for the help.

    use ONLY genuine kehin brand kits. stay away for any of the off brands.

    i have genuine kits here, for 70.00 per carb. also have carb mount gaskets, 5.00 ea, and hose for 2.00 per foot ( sorry, i am not sure how much you need.

    please email, or call the shop if i can help.

    Don't think there is any vacuum port. They are synced by checking throttle butterfly with gage pin as few threads here suggested.

    25 feet of fuel line per machine should be plenty. You may use less, but I cannot say precisely how much you will need.
