951 barely turns over. too much fuel?
well i had my xpl sold then, next day went to take her for the final spin, and wont start, barely turns over kinda like when my bindex was going out. so i took the plugs out to see and she turned over constantly, but the odd thing is it was shooting fountains of fuel out the holes, like a lot of fuel, i know its the carbs, but what exactly is making it do that so ill know what to look for when i pull the carbs apart tomorrow? my rx doesnt shoot nething out the plug holes so thats how i figured that cant be right.

open needle and seat, pressure in the tank pumps fuel past the needles

Has it been really hot where you are recently, and the ski has sat out in direct sun?? With a faulty N&S, the heat will cause the pressure to build in the tank and the fuel wants to go somewhere...

well found the problem, the seat had a piece metal that must have chipped off from the last time i fought to get the sheared screw out from previously working on the carbs, it was stuck all the way open, thanks guys. she fired right up as soon as i pumped all the fuel out and put it back together, half a turn and it was running.
