Newbie with a problem, raider 1100
Just wanted to say hi everyone, I'm looking forward to getting involved with the forum. I've been doing a lot of reading to try and learn as much as i can about my ski. Anyway I just got a 96 waveraider 1100 yesterday needs to be polished and the plastics need a little paint but the engine is great looking with no corrasion at all. I was feeling good about it till i took it out for a spin today. It idles fine and does 5mph no problem. When i went to open it up it ran great for about 5-10 seconds then stalled out. It would start back up but would stall out if i tried to go faster then 5-7 mph. The seller told me when i got it yesterday to drain the gas (gas is from last season with stabilizer in it) and put new plugs in, which I'm going to do I just thought it should still run fine for a quick trip. The fuel filter doesn't look that bad but I plan on replacing it anyway. Do you guys think it's just this or should I look into something else too? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. We have a few ole Skool Raider gurus that should be here shortly.

while you're at it, p.uill the 2 hoses off of the fuel sender and try blowing through them as you rotate the knob. make sure the valve isn't gummed up. Does the ski have a choke or primer? if you ride it again and it is still doing it, give it a shot of primer or half choke. if that clears it up you definitely have a fuel issue.

Thanks. I will start with this stuff tonight. Is there any online manual?

Well I tried those things and it ran a little better but it's still not running right. Same symptoms just will run a couple seconds longer till it stalls out. What's the next step?

Rebuild the carbs and fuel pump, replace the fuel filter.
