Hey guys! i just bought a yamaha jet ski! its awesome but i have no idea what it is lol no model year or anything i know the engine is a 700 and it says WRB700VXR or something like that....1994 maybe? any ideas? also it doesn't seem like its pumping fuel. It has a little see through fuel filter and it won't fill it up...do you have to prime it or something?
Thanks

1994 Yamaha made a Waverunner Pro VXR-WRB700S. The fuel problem could be the Diaphragm pump on the carb. Check all the fuel lines & make sure the fuel cock valve is in the "ON or RES." position. Make sure there is fuel in the tank LOL. It shouldnt be to hard to figure out

before you pull the carb off, make sure you can get fuel up to the filter. Take the fuel line that comes "out" of the filter off the carb & suck on it. lol. See if the fuel fills the filter

gas taste like shi- , stop if you see fuel in the filter. I have a 96 Raider 700 it goes 40+ . In good shape a 94 will go for $700 - $1000 maybe

You bought a 15 year old PWC, don't know what it is, & don't wanna put $90 into it?!
No offense, but I think you're getting into the wrong sport. Riding & maintaining watercraft is not cheap. Good luck!
