    Connect a fuel pressure gauge to the schrader T and check for fuel pressure. The redneck way would be to remove the return line from the t, remove the gas cap and see if you can blow through it.

    So would it be safe to say no fuel pressure then it will not start and run?

    Not safe at all.

    Ficht engines often start and run without proper fuel pressure. They may or may not even seem to run fairly well, but until the fuel pressure is actually checked, it is not known.

    You don't want to "stack" regulators. The Kawasaki inline regulator has not worked well for some of us. I would just do the reinforcement of the OEM regulator.

    I just did that for the first time on a customer ski with knowledge from that thread. Was not hard, worst part is trying to put the rubber tank straps back on afterwards. It was a TXi with only 30.8 hours! The regulator literally fell off in my hand when I grabbed it! Have an 800 coming in Friday that I'm betting is already 1 cylinder down due to this issue. You can get that lower filter from the auto parts store also.
