97 Tiger Shark 770, Mikuni Carb Tuning

Rate this Entry
Hey guys,

Long time forum reader, first time posting.

I have recently acquired a 97 tigershark montego 770, thats been sitting for the last 16 years. I drained the gas, replaced all Fuel lines w/filter and rebuilt both mikuni sbn44 carbs with OEM mikuni rebuild kits.
With that being said, on the trailer it starts up fine and will idle. I put it in the water for the first time yesterday, and it will only start if you pin the throttle all the way and once it started I got 20 to 30 feet out and it died.
After getting it started back with throttle pinned all the way it will only run about 5mph and then before making it back to the bank ( 30 ft ) it died again. Anybody have a clue as to what might be the problem ? Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
