    98 GSXL 951 Acceleration Problem

    Hey,

    I just put this boat back together (bought it as a hull with a blown motor in it and put a fresh rebuilt 951 in it) and it accelerates odd. If i give it light gas til 2500 - 2800rpm, then i can goose it to WOT and its great turning about 6800rpm and the info center showed a peak speed of 65mph in chop so i figure prolly subtract 5 or 6 from that, and im right around where i'd expect to be stock.

    However, if i just try to go from 0 - WOT it just dies. The fuel lines need to be changed, but is there any adjustment id be looking for on the carb or an easy way to clean them up some cuz they do have 100 hours on them before the motor got shot ... Is there any diagram of what screw is what on these carbs because im really not sure...


    thanks in advance!

    Carb. Jetting is off, or the Screws are out of adjustment, or you have a clogged Fuel filter, whether it be the inline Filter under the hood, or the internal ones in the Carbs.

    Anyone in my area who wants to help me rejet these carbs for beer?

    Is the fuel filter under the hood something thats fairly easy accessed and something that is servicable or replacement part only?

    The accelerator pump orifice is clogged. It will fall flat on it's face from lack of fuel.

    How are we supposed to know where you are? Ship beer with carbs...on ice

    Will do a carb rejetting and cleaning for case of Blue Moon with a bag of oranges on a nicely packed cooler of Wolf's ice.

    I think the case of Becks for Laurens dad is cheaper

    I will give my fuel injected '06 rxt for a truck of corona (I will buy my own limes) and you will not have to worry about your carb screws
