    Any ideas?

    I have recently acquired a 1999 kawasaki xi 750 sport and have some issues. First when starting it cranks and cranks and cranks some more then finally fires up and dies we go thru this a few times and then it will run with choke on for a while then will idle but not very good. Second when you take off if you squeeze throttle more than a quarter of the way it dies but if you ease on it you can eventually get it up to speed but if you let off throttle dies again and have to repeat process. Idk what it could be for sure but I'm thinking carbs????? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    I think you are on the right track with the carbs..... The ski is almost 15 years old, getting to be time for a carb rebuild anyway. It would also help to do a compression test to make sure your not dealing with a weak motor.

    Carbs, inline fuel filter, in-tank fuel filters, fuel pump.
