    SL 750 fuel trouble

    I am new here and I am having trouble with my 95 sl 750. Runs on one cylinder, but if I pull the choke and release it, then it runs on all 3 at WOT. If I let go of the thottle then it dies and I have to choke it again.

    I have the SBT extra fuel pump, and the ski is stock. Compression bout 98psi on all cylinders.

    Has anyone encountered this problem?

    You'd have to go through the entire fuel system, replace all the lines, replace fuel selector, clean the carbs and upgrade to a tripple fuel pump.

    However, 98psi is way too low. I would think that low compression is the cause of your problem.

    Thanks for the help. I replaced filters, fuel selector, water seperator, but not the lines. Guess its time to pull the carbs and clean.

    Will the reeds have anything to do with the low compression?

    I think that bad reeds will cause a drop in compression. How much, I'm not sure. However, the engine shouldn't run with a really bad reed. Another symptom of a bad reed is that while running the engine, with the flame arrestor off, fuel spits backwards out of the carbs.
