    I'm sure they can, but the screws would most likely be toast. Maybe try to find new ones at the hardware store? Or just get another set off Ebay and use yours for spare parts. They're going for under $100 a set about now. Send Ski Crazy a PM, he's parting out a 650 and 750.

    Was this ski put up after being flipped? The whole fuel system needs to be cleaned if not.If it was put away after flipping,then I be looking inside the motor before buying anything.

    ya i dont know why they do that but i incountered one carb that did that but not as bad ,

    but you dont wanna take a chance on a peice of rust or rusted metal clogging up a jet or hole in the carb so i would say get a new set an just keep those for spare parts ,

    maybe its the ethanol they put in the fuels no adays thats an oxidizer and makes em rust a little bit faster ,

    but i know of 2 guys that are parting out fugi motors , so give them a pm or call both guys are really great people to work with ,

    crazy a , and http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=39479

    oh ya they prolly started to rust in storage but go ahead and take the domes off ( tops on the clys ) and take a picture to see if they made it run lean , becuase in a 2 stroke the oil and gas are mixed and ran thru , if it didnt get enough gas and oil then they prolly destroyed them

    Thanks for all of the info so far. To let everyone know, this ski was given to me by a friend. He bought it from a guy that let it sit for several years. My friend told me he could not get it to run but, he did not really try. I figured since it was free the least I could do is ask questions and see if I can get it to run again. I will keep tearing into it and see what I find. Thanks again.
