1997 RA760 waveraider Smoking Problem
I have heard it all before,
Yes its a 2 stroke , yes it does smoke out of water, I purchased this 2 weeks ago and have not taken to the river as yet.
Not game enough as yet as I think she might stop on me.
She has done only 103 hours , motor looks very clean , always flushed ( so she ( seller ) told me so ).
I have cleaned the whole jetski out, changed the Primer ( gas ), changed the spark plugs ( were black internally but gaps were ok. )
Opened carby out looked very clean , pictures are attached.
Noticed heavy oil deposits on the ride plate , the air intake ( 2 on the right hand side seemed black ) . So I removed rideplate, cleaned it , then did some fault finding. I found that the BILGE nossle was very loose , oil was sitting in behind it. So I tightened it and replaced the hose.
Why would the BILGE hose if that is what it is have oil? I thought it was for pumping water out, or maybe the earlier models forced oil through it!
How would you tell if the pistons have had it?
Or the oil rings?
She starts first time everytime.
Though since clean out I have not started it to see if oil is still exiting as it used too.
I have attached some pics of stuff, please help.
