    Yamaha GP760 Idle screw.

    hey guys i just cant seem to find the idle adjustment screw!, its frustrating the hell out of me.. i should probably start with my problem.. When i start the ski it will run until it warms up alittle with out hitting the gas, but once it warms up a bit it stalls when just sitting there not touch the gas so im assuming its a low idling proble? if any one thinks its something different please let me know what your take on it is thanks..

    im gonna post a picture of the engine and uncovered carbs maybe one you guys can circle the idle adjustment screw for me to make it alittle more easier for me bc i can not find or see anything in there not even on the internet i cant find where it is

    btw i dont really have a tachometer handy i dont really know where i can get a cheap one bc everyone i see its over 50 bucks i dont really have the extra money right now.. thanks but if i can would some body explain how to hook it up and use it and what not

    Thanks so much guys, sorry for being such a noob here

    Yep, where the cables come in, sorry if I led you astray. I thought they hooked to the front carb, maybe I'm thinking of the XL700.

    Well, use a dremel to flatten the top, then cut a slot back into it for a flathead screwdriver.
