    Throttle Responsiveness

    I have a 98 gsx ltd, with a rebuilt sbt engine which i just put in. I put everything back together and it seems that the throttle is not as responsive as it used to be. I recently went to premix. Could a bad ratio of oil to gas be a strain on power?

    Also what do i look at to make the ski more responsive? reset carb settings?

    did you rebuild the carbs before you installed the new motor? that may be your problem. it could also be an adjustment in the cable, or a premix ratio varience. it just depends

    carbs were rebuilt last year, this year i put new fuel lines into the ski after the old ones clogged up the fuel filters in the carbs. replaced the fuel filters in the carbs this year.

    I know that its not the throttle cable, i did estimate the ratio so it may be rich, because it does bog slightly. I guess i'll have to pull the plugs to see though. Im hoping that the pre mix ratio/carb settings are the problem. I do not want to have to go into the carbs and clean the needle out.

    Sometimes the SBT motors dont make as much power.
