    1998 zxi1100 TOP SPEED 45..to 10 mph top speed

    Thx for the help......first off the ski has been sitting for 7 years. I pumped out 90 % of the fuel and filled it with premium. Then the carbs were removed and had a shop clean/inspect them. I took it out yesterday and it got up to 45....then started missing.....back to the marina, new set of plugs....it ran worse, now it would not even get on plane. What could it be....? When I throttle it it bogs.
    The first set of plugs were black. I just checked the new plugs and they are clean.
    Fuel pump?
    What are some basic tests I can perform?

    May have sucked some crap off the bottom of the tank. Will need to take the carbs apart again.

    The oil tank was never changed, do you think the 2 stroke oil needs to be changed? I didnt think so....Also the fuel filter is clean as ever. I think it maybe something else? First ride it got up to 45 mph...

    Untreated gasoline turns to garbage when left to sit in the carbs for 7 years. Start there.

    There is new gas in the tank..premium....I called and talked to the mechanic and he seems to think it is the speed modulator. This is the same mechanic that cleaned the carbs out when I brought him the cv units...Any ideas on how to test the speed modulator? Thanks!!

    Speed Modulator???? What the hell is that? I think your 'mechanic' just made that up to get you off the phone. He might as well said it was the muffler bearings, or the knuter valve.
