2000 GP1200r Carb Issue???
I took my ski out fo the first time this past saturday and it started right up. It starts off pretty good it seems to be loading up a little and when it hits about 45mph it seems to finally hit the power band and takes off and sounds much nicer. I have the EZ tune kit on the carbs but they were there before i bought it. This ski is jetted for sea level and im at 4000'. but i would think i could just lean it out a little with the EZ tune. Any suggestions? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

when was the last time the carbs were gone through and cleaned? may only need cleaning and minor adjustments. good luck.

Before you start turning the screws on it you should pull the carbs and see what needle seat and jets are in it. and is the throttle pump removed and does it have flame arrestors on it. all of these things factor in on where the hi/lo adjusters should be. there are a lot of carb specs on here to go by. and a good cleaning wile you got them down. just don't want to see you lean it and melt a piston.

Mud: Im not sure if the pump is removed but here is a list of the mods the guy i bought it from put on.
Intake Grate w/pump shoe kit
Impeller and R&D ride plate
Free flow exhaust
Waveater valve kit
D Plate jetworks mod.
New head with pro-X pistons
R&D air cleaner with outerwear pre-filter
Oil block off plate
the engine was rebuilt in 2012. I have it written down somewhere but i think it has around 20 hours on the motor. So i havent cleaned the carbs or anything. I pulled the plugs last night and they were pretty wet. I dont know very much about PWCs this is my first one and I have never worked on it. So it will be slow for me im sure. Is it tricky? Thank you Mud, Rich, and Jet man

Thanks for the info could you post some pics of the plugs and what cylinder they go in. also get a new set of plugs put them in run it at 3/4 to full throttle make several passes on the new plugs then run it to full throttle about 10 to 15 seconds then pull kill lanyard. pull the plugs get some pics and what cylinder they came from and post them.

Not to jack ya thread - but I am kicking my own ass right now, being tired, I miss read the simple instructions of removing the carbs, was trying to take the little bolts out. I would rather take the engine out then try to remove the little bolts from the bottom of the reed rack......
Finally gave up and went back and re-read. Think I got it now.
Correct me if I am wrong - its the 2 long bolts on each carb and the allen bolts to remove the carbs rack itself ?
