I've only had a few things go wrong with mine. It's the oil hoses and their connections that are not! No carb problems it's run great ever since. Is this jet ski reliable? Extra nice pair of skis. Includes extras: Boat cover, life jackets and knee board. If so, do I have to mixs the oil with gas? Could this be a pop off pressure issue? It's been extremely reliable and I say that you can believe everything you hear about Yamaha reliability. No I don't think there are any air leaks anywhere. I rode mine for the first time this season today and it tops out at 50 mph.
Which hose should go where? Then before you shut the engine down, make sure you turn the water off first. If this is a pop off issue can you tell me how to fix it. No problem running a cold jet ski engine for 15-20 secs on the trailer with no water. For under 40 bucks you can elimate this headache, hit the primmer 3 times and go riding. I have a '94 Wave Raider 700. Many people convert to premix to keep from burning up a cylinder due to oil starvation.
I believe this is a 2 stroke engine. If you meant realizable, then if you got the dough, probably so. Alot of my riding buddies had to do this with Kaw's and Yamaha's especially for the same problems. Pros; Has a great hood which buckles down to seal water outta the engine compartment others just have the seat to cover the engine. Does it have the hour meter? I run all day, till I can't stand anymore and this ski still has a Half tank in it! Try to start the machine without manually priming. But after sitting for awhile it won't start without manually priming the carbs. The cable was a little stiff before but I've taken the time to lube it so it moves freely.
What's the lever on the left front next to the start button? Re: 1996 waveraider 760 loses prime Ok How should I bypass the switch? You will be able to use the search function to browse the manual and print out your needed pages. With hundreds of pages, it will show you how to distinguish any problem from an oil change to a transmission swap and how to fix it on your own. Hence, the need for old Skis, Knowledge, People and Threads! There is no crankcase oil to change in a 2-stroke. Yes my ski does have the factory choke. No, I am not green and I don't really care about buying a bunch of fuel but, I do care about running out of Gas. I need some info on this jet ski but I could not find any out there. If so, do I have to mixs the oil with gas? I think you mean reliable, and then, it could be, depending on it's condition.
It is an oil-injected two-stroke. Pour a little gas down the carbs and it fires and runs no problem. It runs great, almost better than I could hope for. This results in an oil injection hose falling off of it's fitting and that particular cylinder burning up due to no lubrication. Exhaust pipe corroded through due to saltwater boating where I live.
I had a carb job done and it's run great ever since. There is no hour meter. But, yes, I ride a '96 Yamaha WaveRaider 700 and it's been a blast. I also used Oetiker clamps to secure the hoses to their fittings. I recently replaced all of my oil hoses on both of my Yamis with clear urethane hose that I purchased from.
No hr meter Yes two stroke No, unless pump is disconnected on oil injector, then yes No, just be sure and add enough to not run out. Re: Does Anyone On Here Own A 1996 Yamaha Wave Raider 700?? It is an oil-injected two-stroke. There is no hour meter. Starts right up every time and never left me stranded. The oil injection pumps are extremely reliable. Includes a small stove; sink with a 5-gallon, fresh water tank and a built-in place for porta-potty.
I appreciate you checking those tuning tips. I'll probably buy another before next summer but it's been fine for the last several outings. Both ski's start and run, but like any this age need work. . But, yes, I ride a '96 Yamaha WaveRaider 700 and it's been a blast. Re: 1996 waveraider 760 loses prime Mason, I'll check my Mikuni tuning guide for tips when I can.
