    1996 1100 wave venture Starting issues

    ok. Im stumpted. I need help!! here's what i have and what ive done so far.
    1996 waveventure 1100.
    -rebuilt top end
    -rebuilt carbs, even put new sprngs, 80mg 1+2. 95gm #3
    -new fuel lines.

    -has spark
    -great compression
    -I can see gas flowing through fuel filter and into carb (clear fuel lines) when i crank and choke.
    -THE LITTLE FART WILL NOT START!!!
    -it will start if I add fuel (40:1 mixture) straight into the venturi of the carbs (or even straight into the spark plug holes.
    BUT it will soon die when that gas is used up.
    Is there some sort of fuel kill switch that I messed up?
    I am at a lost. any guidance or advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

    Do you have the fuel supply and return reversed?

    You have to , have to , rebuild that fuel pump , thatís what fails , your pop off on carbs will be too low , leave all stock springs and needle and seats stock sizes , replace if bad of course , or you will be too rich , those little carbs are way fat on jetting , I fix a bunch of those skis , learned the hard way on pop off on that particular ski , works best stock , I donít like fixing those skis , 20 lbs of stuff in a 5 lb box , but , people are emotionally attached to those skis and will pay well to fix them , so I fix em

    Thank you so much for the reply's. The fuel lines are not reversed, (just checked) but thanks for the comment. I don't think I would see the fuel going to the through the filter and to the carbs if they were reversed.(?) I will rebuild
    The fuel pump and see how that works. I'll keep you updated. Thanks again for the help!!!!

    Quick update in case anyone has the same problem...It works! You were right. I put in a new fuel pump( from amazon.was going to rebuild but I didn't want anymore variables) and it started right up. Thanks for your input.
    FYI. Those spring strengths I inserted were as per factory spec. The other springs were rusted and worn.
    Thanks again!
