waveraider 1100 shuts off when giving it some throttle
i just got a 1996 waveraider 1100 and i took it out and it ran fine...for about 20 minutes. then it shuts off when i apply over half throttle. it starts back up everytime. but does the same thing. can anyone help me out with this problem? is it anything big?

yes ,check the tank vent to make sure its operating correctly... you can cheat with this and when it happens pop the hood watch the tank and loosen the fuel cap ..if you hear major suction louder or longer than than the normal ('fssst') noise,or the tank reforms to its normal size, the vent check valve or a hose feeding it is clogged ...restart the ski up and try a streight line ride for a while,with the cap fairly loose ... if it doesnt die, your on the right track..if this is not the fix , You will need to follow scotts recommendation and devel deeper with tests ......
I assume this is fine till you go past half again with its higher fuel demands? (pump wont pull more than the small bit of venting lets it) ... pop that cap when it happens and see if it lasts you then another twenty or so ...
