    Did you change the fuel lines, clean the selector valve and clean/change the fuel filter in the front? I'd start there if you havent....

    My XP did the same exact thing when there was a hole in the rubber exhuast hose between the pipe and the water box. My water regulator took a **** and the hose burned a hole in it.

    sorry, missed that in your post. if it runs better once it cools off, you could be seizing your engine each time (very slightly). first things first, do the fuel lines and check your fuel filter and clean out your fuel selector switch.

    rectifier has nothing to do with it, it will run fine without a rectifier, just will not charge battery. I would do a fuel system pressure test after changing the fuel lines and check selector valve. If you have the gray fuel lines you need to do this anyway. If you have the stock fuel filter bowl, i would look at that closely as the gasket will leak. When it starts bogging, check the plugs. If they are black you are rich, if they are dry and brown lean. Lean would indicate an air leak somewhere. The fuel tank also has a vent that may become clogged not allowing fuel to flow.

    ""The Carbs Are Clean Just Rebuilt About 3 Months Ago It Ran Fine After Rebuilding Them Any Help Will Be Appreciated Want To Ride On The Weekend "" Did you change out the old grey fuel lines???
    Come on guys the first thing you should ever check when a ski is not running properly , is the plugs ,and the compression at the same time,I dont mean change them!!!LOOK AT THEM AND SEE WHAT THEY TELL YOU!!! 99% of the time just looking at the plug tells me if its running lean, fat, has blown a piston and seized, or is seizing.There is one of a few things happening on your ski either it is seizing slightly due to a fuel or cooling problem,or when you rebuilt the carbs you didnt clean out the fuel petcock and replace the grey fuel lines!!! or your balance shaft bearings are locking up and it is seizing less likely but I have seen it happen quite a bit.OR if you still are running your grey fuel lines they could be causing fuel problem(run lean ,then hot)You can bet its a heat associated problem or a fuel problem because it runs good when cool,unless its set so fat that it will only run cold(very doubtful)Hey just my humble opinion>Marvin
