Questions about a jet ski

I picked up a Suzuki Tigershark from craigslist for cheap right before the winter. last fall it started up but it was cutting off when you give it gas. Its a 2 cycle oil injected motor. for roght now i have cleaned out the gas tank, checked the breather tube and gone over all of the electrical connections an I got it cleaned up fresh battery, plugs wires, ect. I have no way to check it out until i take it out to the lake this weekend. So i just want to make sure i covered all of the bases.

Is there anything else i should do? I have ordered a shop manual for it but it hasn't arrived yet.

That does kind of scream "carb or fuel line".
I'm not real up on the Suzuki's, but most other makes have a "flush port" that you hook up a garden hose to for flushing after running in salt water.

This also provides cooling water to the engine, and can be used for some light tune up testing in the back yard. You'll be able to at least gun the throttle and see if it dies out, or if you're on the right track.

Just to be consistent with my harassment of the motorcycle guys and while you are "covering bases", I will chime in here. When you go out for a test run, be sure that you and, more especially any female who might be accompanying you, are wearing something on your lower body that will protect your nether orifices from the excruciating damage of high speed water intrusion.

It ain't pretty.

Also, learn to swim if you don't know already.

I know my backyard is to small to be shooting a jet of water around with out destroying something. I also forgot to mention i checked the fuel line and changed the inline filter.

Thanks for the heads up drum, I am a certified life guard so I got the swimming thing down.
