    '97 GTX hesitation during holeshot

    What would cause a slight hesitation on my '97 GTX during initial acceleration? I've replaced all fuel lines, fuel selector valve, and had the carb rebuilt. All known fuel filters are clean. The gas is a few months old, but I added stabilizer when I fueled up.

    Thanks,

    a hesitation would indicate that your carbs are set too lean. a bog means they are too rich. the mikuni manual online has instructions for proper set-up of the carbs.

    what are your current settings for your low speed and high speed screws?

    is it stock or does it have flame arrestors? for a stock ski, the lows should be at 1 turn out +/- 1/4 turn. carb for the mag cylinder should be closed and the pto cylinder should be 1/4 turn out.

    It's stock. I appreciate the information.

    just so there is no confusion, the highs should be closed and 1/4 turn out on the mag/pto carbs.
