    Re: 1998 1100 won't run in water

    Got the intake tubes lined up properly. Then I noticed on carb wasn't opening up. Tore it open and I don't think it was seated properly. Put it back together and they al open evenly. Took it on the water. It's better but only runs 4600 rpm or so. In reverse once it awhile it would come out of the water enough to run up to 7600 rpm plus or minus. It smokes ALOT. The plugs I pulled out of it were very very black. How do you adjust the oil on these things? I think it's dumping too much.

    You got it get the manual to see how much oil it's supposed to take within a given amount of time then you got to use I'll see through holes full of oil with marks on it and see how long it takes to use set oil then there's an adjuster screw on the side to turn it up or down not the easiest thing to do

    I was reading that the pump might not be adjustable, it just mixes around 50:1 at all times? But youre saying there is an adjustment screw somewhere? If there is an adjustment screw is there a stock setting? kind of like a carb screw?

    If the pump truly does just mix at 50:1 that seems kind of stupid. I can just do that myself and cut out the middle man.

    I have never run across a Kawi with an adjustable oil pump and the service manual does not indicate it is adjustable. The pump delivers somewhere between 32:1 and 100:1 depending on engine RPM. Since premix has never failed me and I'm not terribly concerned about that tiny amount of extra oil it uses at low RPM I'm sticking with premix.

    But I pay almost no attention to that oil pump. They get ripped out of my skis about 5 minutes after I open the hood when they first arrive at my house.

    Well here's the thing, it doesn't have a cable attached to it, so does it just mix according to engine Rpms? If this was my ski it would be long gone

    Nope you just got to do that whole measuring of how much oil is used within a certain time with the see-through hose

    So if you do the measuring of how much oil its using, then there has to be a way to adjust it correct?
