    Angry Well another fine mess

    Took my ultra 150 to the local motorcyle mechanic/ jetski mechanic because it was smoking too much and he informs me that I have 130 on the two outer jugs and 100 on the middle , although when i cecked it was hy 130's across all three. My question is once I get it back if he is correct can i drive it just not hard at those compression readings for the summer and pull it apart in the winter?? Also uis there an easy way of testing to see if you are getting oil to make sure the oil pump isworking.

    Thx

    When you get it back, run your own compression test. Did you figure out why it was smoking so much? Perhaps the cable slipped off the oil pump or broke.

    I wouldn't continue to run it with a low cylinder.

    I am going to do that, he didn't set the jets on the carb( I dom't think he knew to much anout the Kawasaki's he certainly had a bad opinion of them). Any advice I guess on each carb there are two settings low speed and high speed ( is this correct) and where I should start with these.

    Any advice appreciated ( Thanks Steve for your input)

    No, there is no high speed adjustment screw on the CV carbs.

    There are two adjustments on each carb one is higher than the other I now am assuming that these are air and fuel but which is which and how many turns from seated should they go.

    Thx

    Don't know what you're looking at, but the only adjustment screws on the Ultra 150 carbs are the pilot screw (low speed) and idle speed. You have to tear into it and change the jets to change the high speed mixture. Don't do that unless you read how to put it back together.

    There are two adjustment screws on each carb that you don't use a screwdriver for but are T-handle so you can just reach in with your finger and thumb and turn them.

    Then you don't have the stock carbs. Can't help you.

    No Steve they are not stock carbs they are Mikuni's so I guess I will see if I can download a manual on them.

    Thanks again
    PS. I did a compression test my self and the middle cylinder is 120 so not great but I can live with that.
