    yamaha gp1200

    New to area- I have a 1997 waverunner gp1200. I have trouble starting but once running it is fine. After first start all is good. I must not understand how much or little to choke when I first start it. Any advise. Thanks,

    If the carbs have never been rebuilt, they need to be. A primer kit will help the cold starting problems.

    I put the choke on all the way, then once it starts I turn it off. If you don't and try to give it throttle it will die...

    How much would it cost to get the carbs rebuilt? How hard would it be to do? My GP760 has the same symptoms.

    I am sure a shop would charge 3-4 hours labor. It is not hard to do yourself. The Mikuni Super BN manual is on the site and will help. The kits are around $40.00 each.
