97 Formula SL 500 blown engine

Thanks for all the input. The cause of the problem is still unknown. He said it "just happened" and I guess most things run fine until they break, or in this case - explode.

Yamaha 340 carb problem

I can't get any gas to the carb on my 1985 Yamaha 340. I've cleaned the carb and made sure all the lines are ok. Any suggested would be greatly appreciated. Ride safe and have a great holiday.

1997 Skidoo Formula 380

Thanks to all for your input. I tried plugs first, no luck. I couldn't locate a fuel filter so I dove into the carbs. Took about 3 hours but now it's running great. Thanks again to all! Have a happy & safe holiday.

I'm guessing the carb's need cleaning but would like other opinions. I put in fresh gas and added a bottle of carb cleaner. The kids rode the sled f...
