    95 waveraider ra700 fuel cut-out


    My friend just bought a really old ski that runs pretty good when the tank is full, but when the tank gets down to about 3/4 of a tank left, the ski starts to cut out and sputter. When you switch over to the reserve tank the ski works fine again. Any ideas on what could be the problem?

    I'd get into the tank and check out the "on" pickup and see if its crack or otherwise damaged near the 3/4 fuel level.

    Thanks for the response Cutlass. I think im going to find some rubber tube to slip over the fuel pick-up and see if that takes care of the problem. The ski runs great when on the reserve side of the switch. Thanks to Madmike1 for asking the questions.
