Hello,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Most likely reason is the choke not functioning, thus it can never get started to get past that or the carbs need rebuilt, I would start by checking the choke and seeing if it is operating correctly by visually inspecting it when moving the choke cable and linkage, next I'd pull a leak down test. The next thing to check would also be out of the fuel pump during this problem and checking fuel pump has no air leaks. Seeing that it seems your saying it runs fine otherwise, the problem is most likely the choke. You should be able to throttle a few times which will put gas in as well. To future assist I would need to know the year of this pwc so that I could be sure I was giving you info related to this specific model.
Thank you!
- Joe
