    GP 1200 Primer Kit ??'s

    Im trying to help out a friend here with this. He has a GP 1200 that doesnt like to start from time to time unless he pours some fuel directly into the carbs. I told him to get a primer kit so that he wouldnt have to carry a small bottle with fuel all the time.
    What exactly goes into adding a primer kit into this ski ? He is concerned with the carbs getting untuned by the addition of this PK.


    TIA , MV

    Two ways to go. you can remove the choke plates and install the primer kit fittings in where the choke plate shaft was. or you can get flame arrestor adapters with nipples in them for the primer lines. you can get kits for this from Riva which means you can buy them through the store here for a discount.

    or try some of the other stores like Island racing, atlantic jet sports etc.

    Dump the choke assemblies and put the primer control were the choke knob used to be! it's easy you wont need step by step directions!

    I have 100's of motor and part pictures, you think I could one of the primer fittings but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I will keep looking. like Zmann said it is really easy and self explanatory. Most kits come with instructions for the application.

    doesnt seem that bad, i guess im just thinking how do you get the fuel to all 3 evenly. When the system is primed, Does the all fuel travel through one carb, then the next carb and then finally the last one , or does it go in to all 3 carbs at the same time ?
