    2000 seadoo xp dying when giving gas

    I just got this ski, rode it 15 mins and it was great. Then it started running rough and died, was cranking slow, dead battery i thought. Battery was 12.40V so kind of low. Got a new better battery and the guy I bought it off changed to the beefier rectifier.

    Now it starts up and when I give throttle it runs rough and does, battery is still good when I take it out if the water. The previous owner rebuilt the top end and carbs with oem.

    I tend to think it's a fuel or electric problem. Maybe the filters inside the carbs? Thoughts greatly appreciated!

    Fuel is a soft pack of power, ignition is usually a hard cut

    It's more of a lack of power, runs rough when I try to increase the gas.

    may be as simple as a adjustment on your low speed needle, but I'd clean the carbs first anyway. there are post on here how to rebuild carbs as well as adjusting jets

    Try new spark plugs, it may be as simple as that, easy to try.

    Gapped and replaced the spark plugs and its the same. The low oil light is also coming on for some reason (oil tank is full).

    start from the beginning. compression test. should be 130-135 if fresh top end. below 130 will lack power. then clean out carbs on fuel lines and try again in water
