    Help new to kawasaki jet skis and your forum

    Hello, i am new to kawasaki jet skis, but not to the sport i used to run seadoo's mostly xp's and a yamaha gp 760. I have been out of the sport for a while and just wana pick ur brains... I had a 96 seadoo xp compared to the 1100zxi i have now it was a lot more snappy out of the hole, also when i spin out it seems like the motor is reving but doestn't start pulling hard... I give it a sencond or 2 and boom right up to 60... Any thoughts... I was talking to somebody and they said i may be loosing thrust somewhere??? Amy help would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance ALSO ANY MODS I COULD DO TO THIS TO PICK IT UP A NOTCH??

    No expert on your ski, but sounds like your pump might be cavitating. Same thing was happening to my jet boat a while back. Rebuilding the pump fixed it.

    I would check the prop and you may want to upgrade it along with the intake grate. The xp was more snappy possibly due to the fact that the ski was lighter and it was also a 2 cyl vs. the 1100 being 3cyl. They will rev a little quicker.
