Polaris Virage 700 wont stay running
I have been working on a friend of mines Polaris Virage 700, single carb keihin.
Complaint was that the ski was difficult to start and that it had trouble idling. First thought was to remove the carb, clean it out and replace the diaphrams, gaskets and o-rings. I also noticed that they had the OEM fuel lines on them, which is something i replaced on my sea doo just for peace of mind. After it was all put back together i fired it up and now it does not want to stay running. Playing with the throttle it will idle up and take off, but only for a few seconds. I looked around for supply side fuel leaks and found one on the side of the carb that the jets are on (for lack of the proper terminology) I am assuming this one was my fault, the kit i ordered came with several spring sizes for the needle valve and i grabbed the wrong one when i put it back together. Put the correct spring in and so far it looks like there is no fuel leaks BUT it still will not stay running.
Freshed up carb
New Fuel Lines
New spark plugs
it still does not stay running...Any ideas?
Also should point out, the guy whos ski it is bought two of the exact same skis at the same time from the same dealer. The ski that is running looks like it has some features the ski im working on does not. One of which is what i would call an accelerator pump on the side of the carb. Is this ski missing things that it should have?
Let me know if pictures help, im pretty stumped with whats going on with this ski.
