    Carbs for 2000 XLL

    Asked this in another thread but it may get lost in the shuffle.

    Looking to replace the OEM carbs on a 2000XLL. More than likely will be running premix. Any suggestions on a particular carb?

    We need more information. What are your mods? Why do you want to replace them? etc.

    Long story short,

    Ski was bought from a friend with blown motor. Ski had Cat trouble, dealer "fixed", left one of the water lines off, ski partially sunk, dealer wouldn't take responisbility, friend let water sit, carbs affected Then after draining etc he took it out and it blew piston 2 I bought it from him and put a SBT on it rebuilt the carbs and it blew due to crank bearing failure (looks like so far). No mods. Spoke to Jetworks and they think they can fix b/c I've had apart carbs to put in rebuilt kits.
    (they were concerned with the bolts being "frozen")

    carbs

    I'd consider having Art @ jetwoks do his Blackjack mod to the carbs while he's got them apart, or you could send them to Tim @ Novi and have him do his thing to them. Or you could just rebuild them, plug the oil injection holes and run premix through them. Last option: sell the carbs you have now on e-bay or somehere and buy some SBN style carbs and manifold. If it was me I'd do one of the first two options.......

    Is there currently anything wrong with your OEM carbs?
    Are they corroded or are you looking for a particular performance gain?

    If not, I would just rebuild them. Many people are still running stock carbs and going very fast.
    I would: Rejet, drill out tamper caps and add T-handles & add flame arrestors.

    Some people still run oil injection and some people premix.

    f.y.i.
    There were several boats at the recent MudBug II Nationals that ran over 79mph on stock carbs. Many 80+

    If you want them modified, Jetworks does the Blackjack Carb modifications that I have seen on a few boats that perform very well.

    Yes, they've seen saltwater maybe 5 hours
    Yes, they're corroded,
    Yes, they've just been rebuilt less than 10 hrs of use on rebuild.

    Not sure they are corroded in the oil jackets but after disassembling motor found injector to be fine (was brand new 10 hours ago too).

    Could the check valves go bad?
