    fuel filter

    Hi fellas,

    New to ski's but race dirtbikes and shifter karts, I bought a couple skis used one is a 1997 SeaDoo GTS and the other is a 2000 Polaris Virage. The GTS had been put up for 2 years prior to me getting it. I went ahead and removed the tempo fuel lines and replaced with Gates fuel line and new clamps,

    I did not service the filter in the carb, but after 4 hours of run time I am experiancing the plugged filter syndrom.

    My question is can it be simply removed and a INLINE filter next to the carb be run? I run these hi volume clear filters on the shifter karts. for one you can see the fuel and it would be a pinch to service.

    Let me know if you would

    thanks Doug

    The filter in the carb could probably be removed but I wouldn't bother. Clean the carb, install a new filter and maybe add the hi volume filter inline before the carb as an extra measure of protection.

    the carb filters should be cleaned or replaced. if alowed ot stay clogged the ski will lean and seize.

    i run a visu-filter between the sediment bowl and the carbs. i have em cheap if you need one.
