    Yes, I do most of my own wrenching... but I am an amateur and not in the mechanic business. How do you know the timing is off??? It does not have adjustable timing. The timing is correct unless the key has sheared and the flywheel has slipped on the front of the crankshaft. This is not easy to see with the motor in the ski. The flywheels can be difficult to remove. The primer kits are easy to install.... howver, I don't have any primers on my skis. You attach the small hoses to each carb. Some attach them to the oil injection barbs if they have run pre-mix. Others drill a hole in the carb (don't let drill debris down the throat), and others drill into the air box cover over the top of each carb. Then you "tee" into the fuel supply line... Some guys mount the primer in the engine bay, (you open the seat to prime it). Others mount it in the original choke lever hole or elsewhere on the dash board.

    Thanks ggauvin for your imput on the manual and starting my jetski after taking it out of the water. I appreciate any advice because I am new to the sport and wish to take care of my machine. I ordered a keilim prime kit. Company said I could call the tech service to assist me as I install it. This will be my first attempt working on my jetski. The fellow that I purchased from said he had replaced plugs, etc. The other day, I noticed, perhaps, some timing that was not adjusted correctly. That will be my next step. Have you done your own work, or do you take it to a mechanic? Thanks again, SakiSan
