    1996 SLT 700 Acceleration issues

    Hi, New to Green Hulk today and any help would be greatly appreciated, I have a 1996 slt 700 that has been to the shop several times to fix acceleration issues that are still not resolved. The ski will not accelerate when first started up until you punch the throttle a few times to get it going. If you punch it around turns it will not pick up properly. After running WOT for a time it seems to clear up, then when it sits again the ski will not want to accelerate. (Very frusterating) any ideas?

    Accelerator pump not holding fuel.
    Leak somewhere in its routing or check valve.

    Thanks! Ill look into this now, would that require the replacement of the accelerator pump? Or is there a seal kit for it?

    Just steel ball and spring. Make sure they're clean and seated properly.
    Since carbs need to be taken apart you may want to consider rebuilding/freshen up your carb as well. Carb rebuild kits are available from Watcon, John Zigler is your contact. Look him up.
