    1200Xl Ltd 1999 Trolling

    Hi All

    Hope all is well? I have a quick question for you if you donít mind.

    I just bought a used Yamaha 1200XLT 1999 waverunner with 130Hrs on it (2 storke). Now my question is currently here in Malta we have Dolphinfish season , and obviously these are caught by trolling. Can I use this ski to troll for an hr or so? Being a 2/stroke do you think that I would damage the engine, or can the engine quite running because of plug fouling as this is a premix? and it's not was desinged to Idle for long ?

    If it was me I would look at hooking up an electric trolling motor if you will be going for that long.

    If you are worried about too much oil at idle, put the oil injection back on.

    No... I really don't want to put the oil pump back on...

    I thought so that's not a great idea ((
