    Whats wrong with my ski?

    I have a 2004 gp1300r and was out on it today and without any warning something happened.It runs fine but now when i give it throttle it seems like the driveshaft or impellar is not turning with the motor.If i give it gas its like the driveshaft is slipping,wont go over 5mph.What happened ,did my splines give out on the shaft or is it something to do with my impellar,thanks for any advice.

    Sounds like you sucked up some trash. Check the intake area for debris.

    shaft

    if nothing in the grate ; pull the pump off and look at the splines on the shaft . if they are worn you will need to change both shafts . you might also want to check the alignment at the love joy coupling when you put it back together .

    Well i pulled my pump off and low and behold there was a crankbait lure wedged in my impellar ,hopefully by my impellar not turning i didnt mess up my splines or anything else,splines dont look totally worn down,what are your guys thoughts on this,thanks.

    If everything looks good put it all back together and go back out on the water and test it.
