1995 waveraider 1100 might need crank seals?
I got a 1995 waveraider 1100. when it starts up it revs up (I think because its lean) and then when your in the water and you try to give it gas off idle it acts like it wants to die and if you feather the throttle you can get it to come off idle and then it drives around. I took the carbs off and they look good and not dirty at all. I took apart the fuel pump too and same thing it looked good. I didnt rebuild either of them. Does anyone think this problem sounds like crank seals or does it sound like something eles and save me from pulling the motor tonight.

Ask Krispaintballz about leakdown testing. I would suggest that first. I can tell you firsthand about screwing yourself by not doing it....

I dont have any of the right tools to do a leak down test with.

I think its more likely the carbs
Is the rear seal pushed out you can visualy check.
Are there any metal shavings in the hull at the rear seal area or gas and oil in the hull ?
If you have the 38 mm carbs they came with stock then I recomend changing them.
The next generation carb is the 44mm sbn carbs for a 97-99 gp1200
They have less problems and easy'er to tune.
Check your fuel filters external and internal I think your problem is in the fuel delivery system.

I ended up pulling my motor last night. I think I might have found my problem. I pulled the flywheel cover off and found oil all inside of there. I pulled the flywheel off and it looks like it was coming out of the seal. So it looks like it might have been the crank seals after all. I might send my carbs and fuel pump to someone who really nows what there doing and go through and rebuild them. Anyone suggest anyone?

You need to know why the seal blew out crank may need looked at too.
Bad carbs will cause back fire and can blow out seals but its normally the rear seal.

You need to split the cases to get to the seals so look over the crank then and check your fuel fiters and go through the carbs real good.
If it was me I would look for a set of carbs of off a GP1200
Next I would look for some GP1200 cylinders
