    xll1200 plugs wet from fuel/oil

    Thought maybe from winterizing the plugs got fouled, apparently not. 115/115/116 compression.
    Symptoms
    Will rev to 7000 at half throttle, full throttle and it will bog bad but rev up(bad stumble at 6000, assuming when the PV moves). PV all seems to be moving correctly. On water will only turn 3500-4000. Only mods are dplate and wave-eater clips/couplings. Forgive my "not knowing dick about carbs" but is there anything carb related that could cause over fueling? I can see stopped jets causing under fueling but plugs are wet with fuel/oil . also choke is moving, will die once warmed up and choke applied(thought maybe choke was stuck closed). I am used to efi systems and am the worst with carbs. If this sounds like a carb issue who still sells good carb kits? This is more of a family ski so big power/speed isn't a concern, only reliability. Thanks in advance

    Oh and new plugs and I'm pretty sure the xl1200 engine/carbs are the same as a gp1200r

    what you need to do ,have the carbs fully rebuilt /clean including going through the accelerator pump , new fuel filter , that should take care the problem.

    Mike, is there anyone out there still doing what the late great osidebill did? Where the basicly redo the stock system?
    Or was that more for modified skis with plans for big power, etc..?
    Where can I get the correct, OEM rebuild kits? Riding season is just about here and if just a rebuild(I'd like to go ahead and do all new parts by the way, needles, seats, etc..) So I know its done correctly.

    Like Mike said, its time for a rebuild of the carbs. You can try Carl at Island racing, I think he'd be a good start if you can get ahold of him.

    If you are handy with tools at all, they really are not hard to do yourself. Your choice.

    Well actually I drained the tank, put in fresh ethonol free gas and a can of seafoam and I hit 60.2mph after a quick pull today. Whatever was stopping it up or holding something open I suppose
    Will keep island racing in mind

    i will not take long to burn a cylinder . dirty carbs are the killing to any engine, it may sound and performs OK , but in reality its starving for fuel , you will not notice until kaboom . like i mention before, to just clean and rebuilt , you probably can do it , to do a one last time good ole job , WFO .

    Still trying to figure out where to get the correct rebuild kits. I would like to stay with OEM.
    Also I decided to keep oil injection, I ziptied and clamped every line, which were still very pliable
