    Standing on the carb side of the ski look down to your right where the U pipe is..When you pull the throttle cable you should be able to see the cable pulling the wheel. Has anyone touched the idle speed ? It is the knob on the same side (again on your right).

    You could have an air leak but need to check the basics first.

    In the How-To section you can download a complete shop manual for that ski.

    That is it. When you pull the throttle you see it open up the carbs. When you let off the throttle, do you see the wheel return?

    take your seat off... ok

    look into the engine and just pull your throttle and let it pull, let off.. keep doing this. You should be able to hear/find the wheel that the throttle moves.

    Once found, pull the throttle, and see if it instantly goes back to shutting.. or if it slowly moves back, or if it doesn't at all.

    it goes back quickly. Lets say I turn the ski on ,it will start to accelerate by itself without pulling the throttle cable???What is causing this problem?I dont know if it will do it on the water,I will have to eait untill saturday to test it.
