    Clarification

    Ok I am a Newb so just need a little clarification on this. I am not familiar with starts and such so not sure what the meaning is:

    To test the low speed setting pretend that you just jumped the start and you have to start with no holder. Hold the ski by yourself and hold as many Rpm as you can (don't blow it out first for testing) and then nail the throttle hard.... NO FARTHER THAN 50 FEET , as you are only testing the start response

    If it blubbers like a schoolgirl trying to guzzle a quart of beer, then it's too rich on the low speed screws..

    If it falls flat on the line (like someone punched you in the stomach).. It's too lean on the low speed screws.

    How do I do this ( am i supposed to stand behind the ski? ) and how much throttle for the start?

    Please post the PM response as I too was curious what that meant. I just cleared the waterbox and started tapping the throttle to check accel.

    It goes something like this

    Hold the throttle at about 2200 RPM with you sitting on the craft. When you accelerate (full throttle) if it's lean it will stall or boggg.
    If it stutters and slowly builds RPM's it's too rich.
    You want a strong clean pull for 50 feet.
