    What the heck did the JetSki Shop do???

    Took my '95 XP to the shop to rebuild carb (gotta learn to do this stuff myself. I can work on cars but afraid of messing up my toys)

    Took her out, ran great on the water.
    Took her home to flush, ran engine & it revs like a mofo, sound like WOT.well...maybe not...but close.
    Took her back on the water. Idled fine in water & ran great.
    Back home to flush & it revs like crazy on the trailer!

    I disconnected the throttle cable from the carb & was able to run ski to flush it by keeping my hand on the carb lever that the cable connects to. by doing this, I'm able to run the ski at lower rpm's. connecting the throttle cable back keeps the throttle plates open a little too far which causes the high revving?

    Now, if it idles just fine in the water I'm concerned that if I adjusted the idle screw to make it idle good on the trailer, that this will cause a real low idle condition in the water. bogging...dying...etc.

    Could this really be as simple as adjusting the throttle cable on the handlebar? (nothing to adjust @ the carb)

    Any thoughts?

    It must have 2800-3000rpm on the trailer and 1500-1800rpm in the water!

    Runaway condition under no load is due a vacuum leak.

    You must adjust the throttle cable at the carbs side.It has 2 10mm nuts,unscrew them and adjust so the throttle plates stop at the idle screw.Then start the engine and fix the idle to be at about 2800-3000rpm out of the water(when it gets in the water it will rev at 1500-1800rpm).

    The shop most likely adjusted the carbs with the ski in a water tank. Mine rev pretty high out of water too. But only runs away when I forget to turn the fuel switch back on. I live at 4200 ft so my ski run rich anyway.
