    Kaw stand up ski carb adjustments

    I am trying to get a 90 Kaw 550 stand up ski to open up. I have put in a new kit which is the round carb but didn't mess with the high and low speed settings because I didn't know what they set on. Everything looks stock no mod. compression 120 on both cylinders. I didn't know if I needed to do a popoff test on this also. I never messed with a stand up ski before so it's a friend. It starts up and runs good on water just won't open up. any help on this please !

    Thanks

    "It starts up and runs good on water just won't open up." What does that mean?

    Did you count the turns in to seated for each carb adjuster screw, record the settings, then remove the adjuster screws as part of cleaning the carburetors internally?

    What settings did you put each screw at after the carb rebuild?

    k447 I did cleaned everything so the settings were pto low speed set at 1, high set at 5/8 mag the only setting 7/8 is what it was so I put it back to that number. I talked with a guy he told me that I may need to put a #30 jet in the return line. Any help would be great !

    Thanks
