Hello how are you
Give me a moment to gather some info for you
Hey Chris...stressing over an old Wave Runner. Has run great for 15 years.
When were the carbs last serviced?
Never noticed this hose hanging into the areaa where the gas and oil tanks are. Look slike it should be attached to something.
Its a vent line. Your issue is a common one. I will post a picture and a description of what happening as well as the fix
Your carbs have small strainers / filters in them. Over time these become clogged resulting in a lack of fuel flow into the engine. Symptoms are bogging. I remove them and throw em as far as i can. I also reccomend installing carb rebuild kits while your at it
The strainers i am refering to are part # XXXXX in the pic below
Sounds like something I need my mechanic to do.
Its pretty involved and the carbs on that ski are difficult to get off.
If you have any further questions let me know. Please remember to rate my answer ok service or better so i can be compensated for my time...Thanks
If you would like to attempt the job yourself i can send you a link where you can download a manual
So the hose hanging in the area where the oil and gas tanks are located is doing what it is supposed to do?
Yes, as fuel is used up from the gas and oil tanks air must be allowed in
Noted and thanks.
You are welcome
