    Arrow 1996 SeaDoo GTi 720 idle issue

    Hello everyone I am new to this site, I just bought myself a GTi 720 everything about it is great only one problem. When I am idling in the water it will stall out. When it is connected to the hose hook up it can run all day with out stalling out. Any ideas? Any other information on this ski would be great as well. Thanks for your time.

    sounds like a leaky needle/seat flooding it out at idle.

    can anyone back that up or am i wrong?

    not unless its needed. just get new needles and seat and replace them. clean out both carbs and replace the fuel lines if you still have the stock grey lines. there is a good write up on this site to do it.

    thanks a lot i really appreciate the help i am going to try these things and see what happens. One more thing can you explain why it runs fine on the hose but not in the water when idling thanks a lot.

    It is not under a load on the trailer and it is running at twice the RPM.
