    Carb Tuning

    I need a few suggestions on fine tuning a 2001 GTX 951 carb motor. The ski runs perfect through out all rpm ranges. The problem I'm having is getting the ski to start after running it and sitting for 5-10 minutes.

    Once the engine is warmed up it takes alot of cranking and applying a little throttle to get it to start. When it finally starts it like stabbing the throttle, not a good thing if I'm in shallow water. It will not start by simply cranking, sometimes it even takes a couple tries to get it to start. If I'm running and shut it off for only a minute or two it starts right up with just a "tap" of the starter. My carbs are set at 1.5 Low and 0 high, Idle speed in the water is 1300-1400rpm. I have tried Low settings from 1.25- 1.75 with no luck. I've also tried pumping the throttle first and then hitting the starter, that dosent work either.

    I also have a 1999 GTX Limited with the exact same motor. It always starts right up with just a tap of the starter no matter how long it sits.
