    Were all the cylinders and carbs filled with gas. Was the gas really to the top of the carb throat? I am not sure how that could have happened, but maybe a bad needle valve or seat. Still thats a bunch of fuel. Must be lots of pressure building in the tank. Check fuel tank pressure next time you get home from riding and see if there is excess pressure built in the tank. I think there is a check valve on the the top of the tank on the 1200. Might want to check see if it is working. Just a few thoughts. Have you had this ski long?

    If the cylinders were full of gas but it didn't fire it would seem you have no spark.
    Have you checked? Maybe CDI failed? Still doesn't explain full carbs, though.

    Must be a bad needle and seat and that caused the fuel to just siphon out of the tank into the engine. Did you have the fuel selector in the "Off" position?
