    Sounds to me like your throttle is stuck open. I'd check your throttle cable and make sure that it isn't stuck or also there might be something stuck on your carbs.

    if your finger throttle is working correctly by pushing in and it retrieves quickly. then adjust your idle stop screw. that is located at the rear of the carburetor rack. its very identifiable with a butterfly style screw head. unscrew (out) until boat idle fine and does not move as you indicated.

    There is no neutral. Once the engine is running it will move forward. Even at idle it will move, Is it revving up on it's own and taking off like crazy? Or is it just a slow forward motion?

    Grant, WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!!

    If you grab your reverse handle and move it backward until you no longer have forward motion. Be careful that you dont have it in nuetral or reverse and accelerate without holding the handle as it will launch forward.

    I too am wonderin that as I don't have neutral either. I have tried playin with the foreward/reverse lever but once it gets past a certain point, it pulls over to the other side. There seems no way to hold it in a "neutral" position. All the reverse is a cup that is pulled down over the jet stream to redirect the water flow underneith. The only way to get a neutral is to stop the propulsion.

    welcome!!!!!
    yep no neutral on a jet ski. either forward or maybe reverse (if so equiped).
    set idle to recomended setting and you'll get a slow forward progress when idling.
    thats why being aware of whats coming up is so important! the ski will always be going forward if the engine is running.
