    1995 SL 750 - Bogging and poor acceleration - new member

    I am having this same issue. What did you find?

But any ideas please advice...
    The ski idles fine and runs fine once its going. Compression is good 120 psi all 3 cyclinders.... Wondering is a cylinder base gasket could cause this or?

    Welcome to the Hulk

    Your post was moved to a new thread to avoid confusion.

    Sometimes similar symptoms can have different causes and different fixes.

    What maintenance have you done on this machine?

    Everything you have said so far is not the simple answer, since the carbs are off I would get a rebuild kit for them (including the needle & seat, don't make the same mistake as I did) clean them and check the pop-off first. After that start thinking more complicated LOL.

    How do you check the pop-off? I plan to clean out the carbs tomorrow.

    Cleaning won't be enough. They need to be rebuilt with the proper OEM Mikuni kit (not aftermarket).
