    you need to know what year! the 99 up and the 98 uses dif carbs! look at the HIN tag at the back of your craft and see the last 2 #'s or post a pic of the motor

    Kinda long story...I bought these skis,used them once and wife decided she wants a boat instead. Installed new plugs before putting them for sale and the yammie redlines immediately after start up. I know from other engines thats usually indicating an air problem. I take it to local dealer and they have my ski 9 weeks then call and say they stripped out the jets and cant rebuild the carbs, they wanna sell me a rebuilt set for 800 bones. i settle with them and bring the ski home with a box of carbs parts. The carbs look pretty bad and im no ski mech so i figured it would be easier for me to bolt a set down rather than rebuild.

    I was at the dealer for about 4 hours trying to clear this up. They wanted to bill me like 500.00 labor. I damn near lost it...we setlled at 200.00 for a check out fee and some other bs, pretty much it was pay this or go to court so i cut my losses.

    Well I guess your lucky? I have seen people pay way more for way worse! Check those carbs I linked to! Keddano is an outstanding guy or check ebay!
