98 slxh fuel line update
Hey I have two of the gray fuel lines to replace on my ski, does this year model have the fuel line restrictor in it???? How many psi of fuel pressure should the fuel system have?.....6psi????
I just put in a new piston kit and it still has a little dead spot in it.
Thanks for any info......

The restrictor is built into the carb body itself. The tygon lines you can replace!!
Make sure your accelerator pump is working correctly item #15 below
Check the Float level setting in the carb itself. The flapper should be .060 below the bottom of the carb base to the top of the plastic roller
Also verify your engine timing and make sure its right on as specs show

IS it high idling on you when you come off throttle??
If so make sure your carb sync is correct and that you dont have a butterfly open more then the other two
Also check your spark plug gap make sure that its between .026-.028 max. You may want to close it up to .024 and try that even
Cant stress enough about checking your timing , as if its a little retarded it will act like this and all you will be doing is trying to put a bandaid on the problem until you get the timing as close to spec as possible
