    help 97 sl780

    We have a 97 sl780 that will on occasion just bog down with no power when you take off. Other times it runs good. Also on when you turn hard to the left it will be kinda gutless but to the right it runs great.
    What could it be?
    We already eliminated the fuel guage.

    Also when it comes to carbs what does m c p stand for?

    Welcome to the Hulk! Loss of power while turning usually points to fuel supply issues. It may be time to replace your fuel lines, clean out your tank, rebuild your carbs, and rebuild your fuel pump to be sure everything is in top operating condition. It may cost a few hundred bucks, but blowing out a cylinder will cost much more than that......

    M = Mag, Magneto, or the Front cylinder. C = Cen, or Center. P = PTO, or the Rear cylinder.
