    I did mine 2 weeks ago, and it went off without a hitch. Total time was about an hour. I took my time, cleaned everything I could, and put it all back together. Just remember to remove one at a time. I also "cleaned up" the look, and ziptied where I could to provide a "neater" look to it. Just don't tie 'em up too tight, or you might have a problem.

    I have cleaned a couple fuel sytems out before on my own ski's.

    My 2000 XP (bought from a previous owner) was running out of fuel, and I removed the selector switch this past weekend to find it clogged worse that Danno's pic in post #9. And the dealer had replaced this switch before, as it had worms clamps on it!

    So make sure you guys pull the selector switch and clean when doing the fuel lines.

    Why do yo have to use non fuel injection lines? The 5/16 is super tight I think I might just have to get the 3/8. Also if you have a newer XP 1997 and up expect this to take many hours!!! Just to get to the carbs and be able to do everything right you have to take the pipe off. and the seat and still you will be working in very tight quarters

    What about taking out the fuel selector switch?

    I have been at my wits end with my son's 1998 GSX Ltd. It bogs
    down under load. It was working fine one day, then malfunctioned.
    I had the carbs cleaned by an expert and it worked great for 2 days,
    then again.
    I don't see any use for the fuel selector switch. I have a gas guage,
    can see fuel in tank with tray out and we ride in groups and can tow
    if need be.
    I was thinking to run the primary fuel line from carbs to tank's fuel
    pick up. Can I hook it to the reserve feed? Which one is it? I have
    the manual but it isn't clear.
    Have you guys seen much problems with the fuel vents? Isn't there
    two or three on my GSX Ltd?? Seems like you can't get to the ones on
    the hull as they are blocked by styrofoam.

    We did replace the lines from motor to selector switch before. But those
    gray tempo ones are still there from switch to tank, been in there 11 years.

    I have the 951cc motor.

    Any input is appreciated..........!

    I would remove it and clean it before bailing on it Tom. Just because they cleaned the carbs doesn't mean they did the fuel selector switch. ALL the fuel lines need replacing. The carbs' filter screens will need to be cleaned again, because the lines are where the debris are coming from.

    fuel lines replaced

    Fuel lines replaced from motor to switch/filter. The lines from
    tank to switch and check valve lines are still old hard gray Tempo.

    How do you get selector switch out? Take out exhaust elbow or steering??

    Thanks!

    On the knob, pry out the rubber cover in the center. Remove the phillips screw, and wiggle the knob off. This will expose a plastic nut, remove and push the switch inside the hull. Swing the switch and all three lines to an easily accessible location and remove the lines.
