    First time out in two years, any suggestions?

    Hey guys im new here, but i have been riding for a long time. I mostly ride at lake of the Ozarks missouri since I have a place down there, but since i got my boat my ski has not gotten any use. It has been two years and i have decided to bring my ski home for use on a local river. It is a 1996 waveblaster 2, totally stock. last time i rode it it had bogging problems that were pretty severe, it would not plane up from stop, bog down, then shoot off after a few seconds. Since it hasnt had any use in two years and has just been sitting, im thinking i will do this

    1. new battery
    2. new plugs- best kind? Br8hs?
    3. clean carbs- someone have a link to how to? ( possibly rebuild?)
    4. drain gas
    5. compression check- things to look for?

    any other suggestions on what i should do to get it running well, things to look for would be great!

    thanks alot!

    Sounds like you on the right track.

    After two years the gas probably gummed up your carbs causing the problem.

    Checking compression - look for consistency across all the cylinders. Not sure what yours should be though.
