    Fuel mist out of the top of carbs

    When I hit the throttle a few quick times with the F/A off I see a mist of fuel out the top of the center carb, less out of the mag carb and little to none on the Pto carb. Is this bad reeds?

    Give the reeds a hard look! are you having other issues? you aways get a tiny bit of mist
    I just saw your link That mag cylinder compression is a little scary! did it stay at specs or is it still low?
    because blow by can cause weird reed behavior also

    He's right. A little mist is normal, a big cloud is possibly a reed issue.

    Power loss and mag cylinder dropped to 85 psi. May be what I'm seeing is normal but since it looks like I might be redoing the topend I was thinking about a reed replacement too.

    I hear Carbon Tech reeds do quite well. Definately wouldn't hurt since you'll be that far anyway.

    Thanks for the info. CT was one of the brands I was looking at. They ALL make themselves sound like the best thing since sliced bread if you read there sales pitch. I'm looking for input from real live people, thanks

    Yep, I may go even farther. I wanted to power mod over the off season but may start earlier than expected.

    Check out GroupK.com and see what they do for a Polaris 750. Quite impressive.

    That was going to be an option with the post season work I was planning. I was thinking carb work, performance reeds and spacers, polishing/porting, 785 CDI, exhaust mods...dare I say triple pipes !

    Really just trying to absorb some of the tremendous knowledge here before I have a definitive plan.

    Well after your new post with pics you might want to fix that issue first! and just inspect your reeds! we can help! or put 150.00 in for Carbon techs they are the best bang for the buck until you go twice the money for aftermarket cages Z

    Oh yes, I'm posting to find out why this happened as much as how to repair. I've already taken care of the fuel lines and selector. I guess I'll be replaceing fuel pump, get a top end kit, rebuild carbs, and go pre-mix at the very least. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
