    Question 96 xp first time out since purchased problems

    I've been searching and no help yet... I finally was able to take out one of my 96 xp's that ran. Started up without a problem and then throughout the day, if i went from idle to full or half throttle very quickly, it would bog for a second and then either stall or take off depending on its mood. The fuel tank has written on it "updated 10/05" but still has the grey lines i see everyone talking about.

    Any hints?

    Does the service manual go through on how to do this? New to the whole carb world.

    How much and what size of fuel lines?

    WTF is a selector valve?

    You will need about 16 feet of 1/4 fuel line.

    Selector valve is the on/off/reserve valve.

    I'll get the fuel line at my work (Volvo) tomorrow and where do i get the selector valve??

    One last question... what do I use as a gasket for the carbs after I remove them and clean them?

    Thanks for helping a retaded noob as myself.

    The carbs gaskets are reuseable if not in too bad of shape. Or buy some new ones. I use a real thin coating of gasket sealer on them too.

    Do a search...we have the link for downloading the Mikuni carb manual pdf file here.
