    xl 800 hesitation issue

    My neighobor called me today to take a look at her ski Xl 800 02 ... The carbs were rebuilt last year at the end of the season by myself. Its a 02 so i believe it has no cat. But the motor is running fine till 5000 rpm then its like it hits a rev limiter. I have no clue what this could be but it gets to 5000 rpm fine then it just cuts and stays there. Any clues

    Thanks alot

    Thats when they open... crank the engine for a sec then watch, the pv's will cycle.... make sure there is no play in them...

    Just checked the pv's they are moving (i didnt take the caps off) but check the the shaft the are on. They move and cycle when off like they should. also bypassed the fuel valve just incase it was bad. What is killing me with this is it runs perfect up to 5000 or so rpm then just wont go higher like almost a seadoo with a learing key.
    Thanks for the help again
