I just had the carb rebuilt and even had a new needle and seat put in. Today was my first time taking it out since the carb job was done. I put my jetski in the water today and I cranked it off an on for a good 10-20 minutes and then it finally fired right up. Once it was running it ran fine for the day, no other issues. When I picked it up after the carb job we started it as it sat on the trailer and it fired right up there. So....... not sure what could have happened.

Also, what is the attached a picture off? I found it off and hanging this morning before putting it in the river and re-attached it using a zip tie. Could this have been related to me having a tough time starting it?

Looks like a check valve for the oil tank. It lets air in but not out. Check your lines to make sure they are on correctly. Make sure the fuel filter bowl has fuel. Could have a loose hose, bad fuel pump, mis-adjusted choke, many things.
