    Question 2001 xlt 1200

    New member & new owner of a 2001 XLT wave runner. Here is my problem, took it out for a test ride and all went well. Got it home and two weeks after I got it home I had time to try it out for the first time. It started good and ran good for about a mile or two. Slowed down and it started bogging down until it stalled. It would start be not for long. Before long it would not start. Now it had fresh gas, oil was good and gas was on. The warring light came on but not sure if it like a car where they come on during start up. Got three new plugs after it was on the trailer and was able to start it up. Looked at the fuel filter just under the seat and it looks good, just looking at it. Any one have any ideas what else could cause this? Is there any kind of video's out there that go over things like this? I'm a do-it-yourself kind of person but can always use extra know how. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the HULK.
    First things first , Need to do a compression check.
    That filter under the seat is more of a water separator (water sits on bottom as fuel runs over it)
    But there are tiny filters in each carb that can get fudged up and cause trouble(but thats more towards step 3-4)
    Step 1 comp test..Lets get some numbers and go from there..
    Have Fun and Enjoy
