Jump starting & hole shot
My first question is about jump starting. I have always used a charger for for a dead battery but I have noticed a few time already people pulling their car or truck up to use jumper cables. A few weeks ago I was out on the lake and had an issue and wasnt sure what to do so I took the battery and ran up to walmart and just paid for a new one instead of taking the time to go home and charge it to see if it held a charge. (Small price to pay to stay on the lake.) Jumping a battery like this will it hurt it? I know people and I have done it several times on cars but I just wondering if there was a difference between a ski and a car.
Second question is about hole shot. What are some cheap and easy mods for hole shot. Mine is just not where I like it. IMO i thinks its crap . which brings me to my third question
Carb cleaning and adjusment. Anybody know of someone in the Dallas Texas area thats good at a resonable price. I know I could do it myself but I would like to let someone else do it the first time around and let me hopefully watch and learn.

I wouldn't use a car/truck battery. If you do, make sure to disconnect your MFD. Hole shot upgrades would be a Jetworks valve and a Wet Wolf Adjust A Thrust. Neither I have used personally, just read about the benefits they are supposed to give.

A good waterbox/flame arrestor combo make a really big difference on the hole shot. With just these two upgrades, I would beat just about everything on the lake out of the hole.

IF you use a vehicle, DON'T have the engine running!
Attach the positive jumper to the positive post on your ski.
Attach the ground juper to the engine ground.
As x stated, disconnect the MFD as a spike will take out your MFD.
Raise compression (modified 92 octane heads)
Advance timing (a PRO CDI should do the trick nicely)
Reeds as they will force the air/fuel mixture through the engine faster.
Works valve as x stated, it dries out the stinger for better acceleration.
If you don't have reedspacer, now would be a good time to install them.

I've jumped my ski before with a car battery and snowmobile cables, they are smaller than auto cables. It was fine, but don't leave it hooked up to long. I also did not disconnect my MFD, but that was not wise. I got lucky and it was fine, but they are easy to fry and expensive to replace.
