    First trip out {Have Questions}

    Why would my SL650 idle good and bog down when given some throttle? If I hold the throttle open and then pull the choke out & In quickly it will start running great and keep running great untill I let it idle again And then I have to hit the choke again to get it to run fast again. Any ideas? It runs really good once its going.

    carb's are dirty........ low speed jet controls idle as well as take off 30% to half throttle . theres alot to getting older pwc's running the way they should do a search on sl650 fill out your sig. tell us what you have or have not done. Nate

    Pulling the choke out means your running lean. Try turning your low speed screws out a little more and see if that helps. As stated if it has not been done, rebuild carbs & replace fuel lines
