    Wave venture 1100-developed a major bogging problem. What's the cure?

    I have a mid 90s 1100 wave venture (all stock) that has developed a serious bog when you grab a handful of throttle. If you are at idle it will stall, or almost stall. You really have to "feather" the throttle to get it up in the powerband, and then it runs great. At times, it will not even gain enough rpm to get into the meat of the powerband. Compression on all cylinders is fine, and the motor does not seem to be overheating. The plugs are a pretty normal looking tan. It might be a coincidence, but this problem seemed to appear (or least get much more noticeable) after a recent outing where the ski ran out of gas, and had to be switched to reserve.

    Any thoughts before I pull the carbs? What do you think the problem is? Thanks as always for the great advice I get on this site!!

    I see that SBT has carb rebuild kits. Is that a good value?

    I'd recommend you stick with genuine Mikuni rebuild kits or Yamaha rebuild kits. Don't forget to get all the gaskets between the carb and intake manifold
