    TX 1200 bog at take off??

    I have a 2001 TX 1200 that has approx. 80 hrs on original motor. This ski has worked well with the exception of a couple issues which were resolved. I dismantle, inspect, and clean the carbs each season and do all the normal recommended maintenance. This year when I took it out for the first run it would not develop full power. After a quick check I determined the return fuel line had not been connected back up to the carburetors. Reconnected and went for a run and it took a while before it worked properly. Now the only issue is when you shut it off for 10 mins or so it starts but doesn't seem to pick up its fuel. When you open the throttle it bogs or stalls. After a few trys it eventually picks up its fuel and seems to run ok. I am concerned there is something causing it to run lean and don't want to melt down a piston. Plugs look fine (chocolate brown). Fuel strainer looks clear. All fresh gas in tank. Original fuel lines although they look fine. No sign of deterioration or core going bad. Strainers in carbs were clean. Diaphragms in carbs were replaced about 30 hrs ago (on motor) and used OEM. Just looking for some suggestions.

    Thanks
    Alan

    Is your accelerator pump working? (does it squirt fuel down the carbs when you pump the throttle?)
