    96 xp reserve fuel?

    I ran the little fella dry yesterday and then put the reserve on to get back and could not start the little guy on the water after priming it and choking it a few times. I got it on the trailer and started it no problem after towing it in. Am I missing something? Should I check the hose?

    I always switch it over before it runs out or the light comes on. Too many times it has run out at WOT and I thought I toasted the engine. You might want to check your fuel lines. If you still have the grey fuel lines, change them. TSC has the best prices around. Also, when was the last time the internal carb filters were changed?

    You have to bring that XP out to ride with JayZ and I.

    Solved the problem yesterday. Ground wire was toast, and the spark plug caps were way old and crusty. Put that conducting grease on the setup and cut the wires. This is a "Jay" boat so you'd think I could not break it- I'd love to ride with you guys- I'll check for the fuel lines.
