    How rough should the idle be?

    This is my second ski and my first 2 stroke ski...

    When you decrease speed/rpm...should it feel rough and almost like it is is missing? I am sure it is normal but need to ask.

    I feel like I get just a little hesitation when I start out but I don't really know, it might be normal. Keep in mind there are only three hours on this 2006 GPR and I am not really used to it yet.

    Any comments?

    Did you add extra oil on breakin? Could be fouled plugs.Might check them/get a new set and re-gap or clean old ones.

    Idle...

    Yes I added a bit of oil to the first tank.

    Could that have done it?

    Could that cause any other problems? or just the plugs?

    Seems fine when off and running, just rough idle and slight hesitation.

    i would check the plugs. i have found if you leave it on the flush hose for an extended period of time the plugs foul. in my experience

    As SMW said, check plugs first. But keep in mind that this thing is a 3 cylinder, so it's going to feel odd at idle. You could almost say it idles "rough" if you're not used to it.

    anyone able to post a vid, or a sound recording of a Gp1300r thats idling, out of water.

    like a dry idle for a 20secs on their trailer.
