    Doing lots of fuel work...

    Ok wanted to run a list and make sure I order everything I need to rebuild the fuel system on my 2 skis. I have a 96 Polaris slx, and a 95 sl 650.

    I should order...

    1. 50 foot clear blue fuel line
    2. 6 mikuni sbn carb rebuild kits. appears both skis have identical carbs.
    3. 6 carb base gaskets... all the same
    4. 1 triple outlet fuel pump for 650... Mikuni df 52-92
    5. 1 fuel pump rebuild kit for slx...
    6. 3 caps for rerouting fuel lines on the 650... not sure what to get... any suggestions?

    Is there anything not included in the carb rebuild kits that I should buy? Like a new filter that is supposedly located in there. How about the needle and seats. My carb rebuilding skills are low but I plan on changing that ha ha! The carb rebuild kit description says this... " Includes all internal gaskets, diaphragms, o-rings and check valves". sooo is that all I need?

    Was going to order all parts from the watercraft superstore online, except the df 52-92 fuel pump cause they for some reason do not carry it. Would like to do one order and get it all, so feel free to chime in with anything I overlooked, missing, don't need, or anything. Or if anyone has a recommendation on which online store is the best for ordering these parts, and shipping to Alaska.

    thanks in advance!

    Thanks Mike

    Contact john zigler at rock county jet ski. He should have all of the genuine mikuni parts you need at a great price. He has polaris carb kits with only the parts ypou need.

    Buy the genuine Mikuni carburetor rebuild kits from John Zigler. He sells a Polaris optimized kit that has what you need and doesn't have extra parts meant for other carb versions.

    Also has the correct triple outlet fuel pump, and provides excellent customer support.

    Give John a call. I expect you will be happy with the results. His contact info can be found via the Parts Sources list in my signature link.

    +1 on John Zigler. The rubber nipple caps can be found at your local auto parts store. You can find the fuel line on ebay, I believe he goes by the name "thefuellineguy" he has all different diameters and colors for a decent price.

    If you got the rebuild kit from anyone else they usually do not include the needle and seat, I recommend replacing those as well
