    Default High speed idle screw-what if?

    What if one of my high speed idle screws has the platic cap missing? Can I watch the plug to see if it was tampered with? Won't it tend to lean the plug out? I'm concerned since I bought the ski used that someone tampered with it. It runs very well after I cleaned the RAVE valves as prescribed by seadoosnipe. TP

    Default Yes....

    Yes, reading the spark plug will give you a good idea how well your carbs are running. Attached is a link you might want to look at. It's a great set of pix showing the condition of the plug from rich, to good, and over to lean.

    If your ski was runnign well after the RAVES were clean, you should also be able to compare the condition of the plug you have the cap on, to the plug you don't have the cap on.

    Here's your spark plug guide!........... http://www.dansmc.com/Spark_Plugs/Sp...s_catalog.html
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.
