    Looking for a reason....

    Hi I have a 2008 rxt with 38 hours. I only ride in lakes, when I leave the lake I start my ski on the trailer for 5-6 sec. I go back to the lake and get in the water, I ease into the throtle, the ski doesn't go but sounds like it cavitates, alot of noise then half throtle it hooks up and no trbl the rest of the day.... Is thier something I am not doing right? Or I am I doing somthing wrong? thanks for the help bob....


    When I do not run the ski on the trailer after riding this does not happen...

    Is that the stock prop or did you change it?
    I have over 300 hours on two RXT's and we've never experienced that. It almost sounds like you are having a drive line issue or something... maybe your impeller needs to be tightened. Not sure but I think sometimes if you rev the ski out of the water it can make the impeller slip a little if it's not torqued down properly, could be something with the cone or the splines on the shaft. Anyway it's under warranty so you really should ask your dealer to take a look at that.

    BTW, you never answered my question on the prop, is that the stock prop or did you change it?

    Did you check the condition of the wear ring and prop??? No obstructions in the tunnel?? Check for the easy things first.

    Yes that was the first thing I did, the first time it happened. Saw nothing. I put it in and out without running the ski out of the water and everthing worked fine. But this past weekend I ran it just before I launched and it took a couple of min of lite throtle before it would go...
