    Look what fallowed me home!

    This was one of the first skis i bought back in the day. The first was a 95xp718.
    Picked it up with new motor for $500. It will be the yougest kids toy i dont have to worry about. And people buy sparks for thousands. This thing is a blast. Anyway inspection on it all this weekend and then goes to lake house for a beating.

    Yep i had three of them and about 8 94-95-96xp's. This ski is for my 11 yr old daughter not me. They can hit the dock and i dont care. Better tham a spark IMO. For them.

    Well i got the carbs cleaned all the tempo fuel lines out and cleaned the whole fuel system and oil system from its ass on up. Even new oil filter. Ski started wright up and runs very well. I took it to the lake for a test run today and must say it is so much harder to ride then i remember, but hell im 100lbs heavier... lol.

    Anyway only one issue i set the carbs a 0 high speed and 1 1/2 low speed. But it bogs bad and shakes like hell.... this is rich condition correct? I think im going to lower to 1 1/4 on lows.

    I am not sure on the carb setting, but it is most likely 1 on the LS, 0 on the HS. Read the carb tuning info on Group K website, it is the best info on setting the carbs. There might be a link to it on the 2 stroke forum as well.

    If you go WOT and it's loaded up, takes a sec to clear and then kicks in then yeah its rich. If it falls on its face when pulled to WOT and then kicks in then lean. What are idle rpms in water? Could be shaking bad due to too low of idle. This is the way I tune my 2stroke race skis... Tach needed. Back trailer into water and crank ski. Adjust low screws to yield highest rpm at idle. Once that is done, I start on the rich side for the highs. I'll do a WOT pass and record highest RPM then turn high screws in 1/8 at a time until RPM drops. Once it drops, I go back to the last screw setting. Once that's done, I'll idle around and go from 0 throttle to WOT. It should hit immediate and have no lean or rich hesitation/bog.

    Good idea to replace the fuel selector as well if you haven't already.
