2 questions..1) intake grate, 2) water problem in carb??
((Relating to 1994 XP))
Two different questions here and will start with the toughest:
Put put put...Thought I might have had condensation in fuel tank, so cleaned tank bone dry, vacuumed bottom out and replaced with new. Cleaned water separator also. New plugs as well. However it still puts at about 2k rpm and gutless. (bag over head big time)
When I siphoned out the fuel, I saw three smartie sized drops pass through the clear line I used. Is there a chance that water is trapped somewhere else, like in the float bowls of carb? What to do...what to do...
2) Intake grates, so many choices but how do you get the right one without trying them all? I have looked at the various designs and wonder if there is someone with the experience here that might offer some recommendations. We do ocean water and some waves at times, and have experienced some cavitation on sharp turns.
Any advice appreciated.

The carbs are not like conventional motorcycle carbs...in that they don't have a float bowl. But they do have an internal filter screen in each carb that you need to clean. This is most likely your culprit. While you have them apart spray carb cleaner though all orifices.
Here is the link for the carbs...

I was also informed that it might be time to R&R the fuel lines so ready to do that as well. Thanks for the tips, muchly appreciated!

fixed the problem
So after all, Chester stopped by today and checked things out and diagnosed it as an electrical problem. A plug wire was loose and corroded from the boot. DoH
Went ahead and replaced the fuel filters and cleaned everything up. (Thanks Jeff) Now back to the rodeo!
