    97 xp new buy

    Hey I'm new to the world of PWC. I traded my old boat for an XP. It starts and runs!!! I just wonder if theres anything recomended to take off and check out to make sure it's been maintained. I don't want to get on it until I'm sure it's not going to leave me stranded

    Thanks for your help!

    check the carbon ring on the drive shaft or maybe replace it. If it breaks old comes apart the ski we sink. It is the black piece hose clamp to the boot.

    I had a 97 xp a few years ago that I blew up at Lake of the Ozarks! anyways fun place to be and fun ski to be on. I would pull the carbs and clean them, possibly rebuild them, check compression, look at the wear ring clearance, check the pump veins.

    If it has the gray fuel lines replace them, the inner liner breaks down and leaves a gooey brown mess in the carb filters which can cause it to run lean and seize. Clean and rebuild the carbs with genuine Mikuni kits, clean the RAVE valves and service the jet pump then you should be good to go.
