    Kawa Triple w/CV carb Primer Install with Pics

    OK i just got through installing a primer kit on my 1100STX w/CV carbs. I bought the single primer kit for $20 shipped off ebay. I then ordered some extra fittings (for R/C airplane engines) from Tower hobbies. All this was ordered X2 because i still have a STX900 to put a kit on too. All toll for both cost was $58(i'm a tight wad & didn't want to spend the extra for 2-3 carbs kits vs. buying your stuff individually.

    I fashioned a backet for some scrap i had in the junk pile so i could install the primer pump on the engine & not in the dash(so i could still use the chokes). I then used some thru hull fuel fittings (they come in the fuel tee kits from Tower Hobbies) & drilled a small hole in the side of each vinyl/rubber carb barrel. These fittings have a barb on them that allow you to press fit the hull fitting into the side of each barrel with no fear of them coming loose. I mounted the pump on the flame arrestor & tapped into the incoming fuel line. My 1100 hadn't been started in 2 weeks,...3 pumps & she fired rightaway. Monies well spent.

    I like the placement. It looks almost stock.

    I still wanted to be able to use the chokes...so i couldn't mount the primer on the dash via the choke hole. Plus theres not alot of other places to mount the primer externally so i opted for inside on the motor. This serves two purposes,...short fuel line connections & this forces you to pull the seat to prime it...thus airing out any gas fumes that may make you ride go BOOM! Also i mounted a keyed battery disconnect at the rear (under the seat) so i have to pull the seat anyway to prep the ski for starting after it's been stored.
