    '96 SLT 700 missing at idle/low throttle

    Hey all,
    I'm back after getting my burnt piston straightened out and the ski up and running again. The ski was running like a champ up until the last time I had it out. I had it out in the morning making some final tuning adjustments to the high speed jets before I took it to the beach. The ski was running great. Then I get it out of the water and head to the beach and fill with some gas on the way. When I get the ski in the water at the beach there is no power, and its only firing on the rear cylinder. I can get it to fire on the front cylinder if I gas it a lot and then it takes off like nothings wrong, but I cannot give it half throttle or it bogs down with no power. The next day I take the carbs apart again to see if there was blockage (I had just rebuilt them with all new fuel lines). The carbs looked clean and there was no blockage. Today I filled it with some new premium from a different gas station that I've had good luck with so far and took it out. Problem wasn't as bad but it doesn't want to idle on the front cylinder and it bogs until I give it about 1/2 throttle, then it acts like it normally does. Not really sure where to go from here. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

    Original ignition system or Ignition Update Kit installed?

    Correct spark plugs installed? New plugs?

    Two rides before the acting up I gave it new plugs, could it need new ones again? And I don't know if there has been any ignition system upgrade installed, is there a way to tell? I'll check out the link of course and probably answer these questions, haha. It is the 2 cyl red engine.
