Fighting with my 2001 1200r. When I accelerate it acts like its running on 2 cylinders.
Swapped plugs Verified compression is ok
Verified PV operation and did Servo test per manual
Inspected PV arms and pins are still in (WE Clips installed)
Intake side is clean
Pump/Impeller is ok
Spark @ plugs
Idles fines and starts without issue.
Any ideas ?

How old is the fuel? Possible water contamination? And what Bill said.

Thanks guys...No Cat - running a d-plate. The cat was in there but was replaced with an o-plate of some sort (not Jet Works). I did check the waterbox and nothing is rolling around in there. The stinger was off for the JW mod so its all clean in there.
It was running strong but then justy kind of fell on its face. Gas was "fresh" buddy filled up @ the same time as me with no problems.
Some basic mods are done to the ski
150 lb Comp head
Open F/A's w/ 110/120/.95g springs (plugs looked good)
For the PV servo motor when they fail do they just fail or is it intermitent ? I am asking because initally I was sure it was not working a day ago but it did pass the test and I can see the valves moving.

Possible broken reed. Only thing I can think of at the moment. Do you have any kind of spacer with those VF2s?

Not sure what you mean by spacer - just the VF2 cages and the stock intake manifold.

Boat will be contrary to start,,,,,,,, maybe
Hard to get on plane will have to feather throttle.
will run great in mid range but any time full throttle is applied it will fall on its face, might even act like it wants to die but if mid throttle is applied it should begin to run good again.
Running with seat off if you have indapendent breathers will see a mist or maybe even smoke comming from that carb. Sometimes there will be a blaste of oil on the hull around that carb.
My sugestion is replace only the 1 broken peatel as some of the sheete meterail used to have bad places in it but most all of that is gone now but one does crop up occsinaly.
Havent heard of a broken peatel in 2 years from any that I have sold and I dont know where you got these from Billie I think.
This could be your problem but it should not run from a stab in the water.
But you could also do the off seat run test.
It might even show some residue on the tralier comming from that carb when you gun it. If you have a broken peteal.

I should have said it could have chipped or frayed to cause the above described condition. This has happened to stock reeds in the past. I agree with Kerry, if it were to have broken or failed completly the conditions described would be much worse and barely able to run. I have no experience with VF2s.
Anyone have any other ideas?
