New to the Yam GP1200R. Have a question with starting. Got this waverunner with a seized center cylinder for cheap. Engine was out. Had the cylinder reworked and put it all back together. Re-installed engine this weekend but I can't get it to start. It has spark, new gas and I bled the oil pump. It cranks but can get it to even try to start.

Seems like a fuel issue. Is there a fuel pump or does the cylinder vaccum pull gas from the take. It has side draft carbs so I don't think they can gum up like carbs with bowls on them (typical motorcycle carb).

Any ideas on things to check.

One more thing to add is that it beeps twice as soon as I hit the starter and the red warning light is on when it beeps, but turns off while still cranking. Is that normal when starting one of these GP1200s?

installing a primer on the fuel return line will prevent any hard starting in the future,,

remys right

If you have aftermarket carbs, you need to prime them with a plunger pump. Its a little tip with a hole usually on the left of the carb, to prime the fuel.
