    97 wave venture... too much oil.

    On idle speed it seems like a lot of smoke is coming out, but once you give it gas it slowly gets better. I pulled the air box off and looked at the carbs. when the ski is idling it seems way to much oil is being injected. im thinking thats why its smoking so much. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Everybody has had this problem with Ventures, especially 1100 ones. Ditch the oil injection and go 50-1 premix. You will not believe how much better it will idle, and run overall, with a tremendous reduction in smoke. I've converted 3 ventures, and several raiders, with all the same results, perfectly happy people.

    Take out the 2 screws holding the oil injection pump on. pull this pump, all the oil lines and the reservoir.Pull the plastic drive shaft that drove the oil pump out and block off this hole with either a blockoff plate(ie at the online store) or make your own. Get some rubber vacume caps to plug off the fittings where the lines went into the carbs.Mix your gas 50\1
    Thats it
