    I am new to carbs too, but I have two 550's getting carbs work right now. What carburetor do you have and do you know if it's been fooled with. I guess there is some jetting mods that are irreversable on the 44bn round ones like mine. Anyway, I am lucky to have a really good jet ski mechanic, I could ask him your question. Maybe it would help me understand mine because they sound similar - poor idle and performance. Do you have a choke or primer?

    Have you checked for exhaust leaks? Double check your tank pressure releif valve? How old is the gas? Try running a line straight from the tank reserve line through the fuel pump into the carb. Most likely, you have a restriction somewhere. (Fuel Selector switch, water sep bowl, fuel lines delaminating)
