    Polaris 1999 SLH - Problems after hull swamping and recovery

    Polaris SLH 1999 Fuel problems

    Hi I have a Polaris SLH 1999 and am having nothing but problems.

    I had a fault last year with the ski after it was took under by a wave and filled the hull with water to the brim, I found the jet ski then to have no spark. I then followed on to find that the ski had the old type cdi update kit in. I replaced this and still no go.

    After stripping everything and clean/replace parts the engine was mechanically sound.

    After many checks I eventually had the ski running so I took it to the beach and as soon as I put it into the water the ski would idle fine but cut out as soon as any throttle was put on.

    I took the ski back rebuiilt the carbs and replaced the fuel line but not 100% they are piped up properly.

    Any suggestions and if anyone could tell me the correct direction of the fuel hoses it would be much appreciated

    Thanks Giulio_18

    Which ignition system is now installed, the Update Kit or another old-style ignition?

    Was the electrical box interior flooded with water, or did it stay dry?

    When you rebuilt the carburetor did you use a genuine Keihin OEM carb rebuild kit?

    All small internal passages inside the carburetor were cleaned out with carburetor cleaner spray - correct?

    Did you check pop-off pressure and needle+seat height?

    Were the original factory gray Tempo fuel hoses replaced?

    Correct spark NGK plugs installed?

    Hi, The electrical box was not damaged with water but after investigation it was found to be the cdi kit that was at fault so I updated the cdi, stator etc. The ski then started fine and but would not rev up on water, I brought it back rebuilt the carbs with correct kits and checked all setting found to be ok. I use BR8ES plugs and have recently just replaced the fuel lines but not sure if I have piped them up correctly.
