96 780 slx need help
Just bought this 3 weeks ago and. need help! first the mechanics top end rebuild 10 hrs ago pistons rings gaskets and carb rebuild new reed valves, deleted oil injection took it out to river to play ran fine no problems. My intent is for my daughter to drag race . so we practiced starts , shutting down starting again no problems. went to 1st race started on line died when she hammered the throttle had to try 5 or 6 times before it would run. 2nd run started fine eased into throttle same thing. done for weekend next race changed plugs. 1st run eased into it. same thing . Added heet as we running in the remnants of Isaac thought she might have water in fuel. 2nd run feathered the throttle still died took 5 or six true to finally get it started to run down the track. where do I start to figure this out.

If there is water in the fuel tank then the tank needs to get drained.
Is there water in the fuel:water separator?
New fuel lines?
Fuel pump rebuilt?
Was the fuel tank cleaned out when you got the machine? Could there be gunk in the tank?
Do you now have full power from the engine?
