Question about Yamaha 12V Air Pump

2 Answers

I have a 2005 Yamaha waverunner. It is hard to start and doesn't want to idle. When I get it going, it only runs at 38 mph. The mechanic wants 750 to rebuild the two carbs. Sounds outrageous, any ideas?

    I was told the carb on the waverunner is hard to get too and therefore labor is high. Is there a less invasive way to clean the carbs such as a gas treatment that I could try

I would definitely try a gas treatment and see if it will clear up the problem. As far as an easier way, it's really a pain in the neck to get to. If the carbs need to be re-jetted or worst case injectors replaced there's not much choice. I'm sure however, you can get someone to do it for cheaper than that. That is outrageous! Hope it helps!

It's not a big job to do and look for someone who can fix motorbike engine and it would be cheaper.The carb is a quite straight forward job but rebuilding does not exist for these,it's either they need to be serviced or changed.One more tip, shop around for the cheapest service man.Hope this helps and forget paying 750 for that.

2004 waverunner fx cruiser, ran great last time out. Now hard to start and wont run on high speed. Nothing over 6 mph.


How old is the fuel? Ethanol causes major problems if left too long. You may need to empty the fuel and clean out the fuel system. Try changing the fuel filter and adding some seafoam to the fuel and running seafoam thru the fuel system. Hopoe this helps.

Yamaha xl1200 waverunner losses power after it is warmed up.


Hi, most likely cause and the easiest to check is exhaust leaking in the engine compartment. Run it without the seat fitted for the same time frame and if it fixes your problem you are looking for an exhaust leak. Regards Phil.

2009 Yamaha vx cruiser waverunner used to do 55mph now won't pass 35 mph


Nevermind those other answers, if its running on all 4the cylinders but just real sluggish and missing top speed then listen up, let's first rule out the possibility of a damaged impeller, now locate your airfilter box and remove the filter, just throw it away because last I checked dirt really doesn't settle on top of water, now locate your throttle body and remove the intake tube from it, now take out the 4 bolts that hold it on and find your flame arrestor element. I've dealt with this problem many times only to find out that the geniuses at Yamaha had installed this screen right after the butterfly which accumulates airfilter material and clogs

YAMAHA WAVERUNNER 2000 XL 800, WILL NOT RUN PAST 12 MPH


Have you done a compression test on all cylinders? My guess is you have a dead cylinder (no oil to one or more cylinders causing loss of power). If the compression test passes (all cylinders equal and higher than 100-110 psi) you have a restricted exhaust from a failed catalytic converter that has broken apart.
