    Try these tuning tips:

    Once you have it nailed down, do not do long WOT ride for the 1st tank or so until you have a chance checking your piston wash

    Did you check pop-off pressure during the carb rebuild?

    Genuine OEM carb rebuild kit?

    Replaced gray Tempo fuel lines?

    Correct spark plugs installed?

    put rebuilt carb

    i rebuilt the carb with a kit i got from SBT in clearwater
    so i did the rebild.....took it out this past week end
    idle ok then when i would give it gas wanted to die
    if i choke it it will run...guy at the dock told me it was to lean
    i pulled the plugs and they look black and oily.....not sure what my next step is.....
    i've called all the local guys and they don't work on them

    There is a check valve in the brass fitting that goes into the side of the carb for the accelerator pump jet. The fitting is two pieces pressed together, inside it is a spring and check ball. If stuck open or dirty it will allow the accelerator pump to suck air instead of fuel from the carb. Took along time to find it but that was my problem.
