    1997 SLT 700 vibrates when ideling

    Hi everyone, new to the forum. Have 1997 SLT 700 ran goog but last summer stoped on me in the middle of lake and I couldn't get it to start. Home I took carns apart cleaned and put together. It started. Today I am trying to get ready for season . It started but for some reason it seems to me that it vibrates and doesn't run smooth. Any suggestions?
    thanks

    Welcome

    When you cleaned the carbs did you do a proper rebuild with genuine carb kits?

    Do this machine still have the original gray Tempo brand fuel hoses?

    When it would not start last summer on the lake, was it cranking normally, just not firing up?

    Have you checked cylinder compression?

    Was it running normally last year after you cleaned the carburetors?

    Correct spark plugs installed?

    Have you had it in the water yet this year?

    Look inside your jet intake & impeller area. See if you sucked up a plastic bag or something. That can make it seem rough.

    No nothing like that. Should I adjust high speed or low speed screw? Any directions how to tune it?
    Thanks
