New jetski owner

Hi. I just purchased a 1995 Yamaha Waveraider 1100. I wasnt really in the market but while doing cardio at the gym I was browsing ebay and found a clean example local to me. The owner was asking $1350. I was able to pick it up for $1100. The ski has 45 hours on it and 0 hours on the rebuilt motor. Apparently the oil pump went on the original motor and killed it. The blockwas bored one size over by Action Yamaha. The previous owner installed weisco pistons, blocked off the oil pump, and had the head shaved by Riva for higher compression. It also has a Riva nozzle.I compression tested the motor prior to the purchase and it showed 150-155 psi on all three cylinders. We got it fired up on starting fluid easily, but the carbs need to be rebuilt as it has sat for a while. I also got a cover and trailer in the deal. Looking for any tips on where to start getting this thing rady for the summer. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. The Raider is running great after I had the carbs rebuilt. I also now have a 2000 GPR
