    Waveraider won't run at idle

    I had my 1100 raider out last week and it began to cut out when I would let off of the gas. As soon as the ski slowed down to about 5mph it would die. I could keep it running by not letting off all of the way.

    After anchoring it by the beach for a few hours, I had to give it full choke to get it running again. (normally fires up w/ no choke unless it sits for weeks)

    I replaced the filter, and cleaned the carbs out. Only 1 carb filter had a little crap in it. Sprayed out all the jets, reinstalled the carbs, and it still wont Idle.

    Now it backfires sometimes if I crack the throttle. Is this a sign of a rich or lean condition?

    Is there a chance that I pinched a diaphragm when I put the carbs back together?

    Maybe an air leak?

    Any Insight would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post.

    Btw, it doesn't run any better on choke now, like it did earlier.

    Check to see if one of the rear crank seals is hanging out of the cases.

    I'll check, Will it be really noticeable? or should I take off the plastic cover that sits over the shaft to see it?

    Rear seal checked out good, compression is 120psi across the board. I tried changing the plugs out today, and cut back the wires. It hasnt backfired again, but its still not running right.

    Would an air leak cause this (didnt change the carb to manifold gasket)?

    Or is it more likely I messed something up in the carbs? Maybe a N/S is leaking?
