    96 xp hot start issues

    New to jet skis and picked up a 96 xp. It runs great at all speeds and starts right up cold, but after riding if I shut it off and let sit for a few minutes it is hard to start. Cranks fine, seems if I hold the throttle wide open it helps. Sometimes its more stubborn than others but eventually starts. when it does start it smokes a good bit more im assuming thats from residual oil. Thanks in advance.

    seems to me that you need a New Needle and seat in the carb..

    yea seems your needle is leaking flooding the carb making it hard to start.

    Thanks. Any suggestions on needle and seat. Like I said I'm new to this, but I've had bikes for years.
