BOAT#1: I experienced the same thing when I had a mouse nest in my water box. When ever you turned left the nest would plug the exhaust and cause an RPM drop till the boat slowed down. BOAT#2: Another thing that can cause intermittent running is moisture in the electronics box. If the box has water in it, open it up overnight to let it dry out, then reseal it and it should run normally again. BOAT#3: The third thing that has caused the same issue you described, was dirty carburetors (SS XI) from bad gas and improper storage. This was made worse because there were also bad spark plug caps on the machine. Hope one of these solutions fixes your problem.

Jet ski is "hard stopping"

Any motor that runs and then develops sudden stopping symptoms gives me suspicions of fuel delivery problems.
I'm not familiar with your machine, but I would be looking at the fuel filter as probably plugged up.
Wild guess, but sometimes I luck out.

Jet ski troubleshooting

kawasaki ultra 260's are only cooled by lake or sea water so if the water supply gets blocked then it will overheat ! did it definatly overheat or just loose power because the superchargers do sieze up due to damp air or the pully bearing , also the dipsticks on them sometimes shear off and lock the cogs ! does the engine still run up on a hose pipe ? also has the ski been left a long time not used without fogging the valves in the head ? this is my job so get back to me ( 30 yrs ) ..

Sounds like you might have the rotary valve in the wrong position. Also you are going to need to replace your fuel lines and check the fuel petcock for any blockage. Lastly, when u rebuilt this carb did you check the tiny fuel filter behind the pump body?

How to maintain my jet ski?

If you plan to store a jet ski in a garage, you will need to make sure it is dry and cool and with limited exposure to the sun. In general, you need to do what you can to prevent rust and other grime that eventually may cause mechanical issues.

Washing your jet ski is also needed after every use. You can use your car wash products. I also suggest to read the user's manual, it may include tips about maintaining your jet ski.

You can protect the engine with a special spray and water repellant.

If you plan to store your jet ski for a while, it is preferred that you will disconnect the battery.

My 1994 kawasaki 750 ss jet ski will only go half speed when I have the throttle wide open?

Is it bogging down, or just stops revving at the point...first check the throttle cable, twist it wide open and make sure it's opening all the way...after awhile they tend to stretch and that won't allow you full power....i hope this helps.
