    pump seal?

    I have a 1200 xlt. I ordered a ppk and r&d intake grate. got the intake grate in and installed it (didnt seal all the way yet), tried in out and still have bad cavitation. ppk is suppose to be here this week. my question will it make a huge difference, or will i still have to ease up on the throttle.
    I had three people on it this weekend and i couldnt even get it going! 3-150lbs people. Does this sound like a different issue other than cavitation?
    all you 1200 xlt owners did the ppk eliminate the cavitation?

    Also I tried to pull a skier and could get it going fast enough to pull them out of the water. what is the deal?

    thanks for any advice.

    the ppk will help but you need to check your prop an make sure it is ok as well I have had 3 on my ski when it was stock with just the ppk and a solas 12/18 and it was ok just a little cavatation out of the hole not like yours not getting on plane doesnt sound good check that prop.

    The prop looks good and the wear ring may need to be replaced soon. Have you been getting any bad cavitation lately? Did you pull the pump out completely and check the splines? Normally if you have bad splines you'll know when your just riding it but i still would check them. When you had the ski with the 3 people on it did it feel like a transmission "slipping."

    It runs hard after it gets going, 56-58 depending on water.
