HELP 08 250X bogging
I have been out of the forums for a while but I am just wondering if anyone out there can help me. The last time I ran my ski was about 4-5 months ago everything was fine. stored it with about 5gal of fuel in it. It does'nt get cold here and it is in my garage. I start it about once a week for only 15 seconds (no water). I have it on a battery tender. Well yesterday I decided to bring her in the water and almost immediately started bogging. with the fast key I was only recording a max rpm of 6180 and about 45-50mph on the dream meter accelaration was slow too and it sounded like it had a fouled plug or something. Took the plugs out and all of them seem to be fine (brown color and dry) This has happened twice before and the first time the dealer took care of it but I forgot what they did. The second time they replaced the plugs. But now that it is out of warranty I am hesitant to bring it there and get charged an arm and a leg for it. I have about 53 hours on here and I also filled her up with fresh fuel prior to launching her so I think that eliminated moisture in the injectors and i still used her despite the condition. I would really appreciate anybody's help. I was thinking of trying to disconnect the battery to reset the computer but did not do it. Please guys I need your help. If this is a common thing (reliability) about the 250X I might just trade up to a Yammie but I am kinda brand loyal. Thanks.

I had the same thing happen last weekend. The ski had not been ridden in a month. When I put in the lake it was doing about the same numbers as yours. Took it back to the beach and let it cool off. When I went back out, the same thing. After about 10 minutes it started coming around and was up to full speed shortly there after. I chalked it up to condensation/ water in fuel. Plugs looked fine post ride.

Change the plugs and not the $65 ones that the dealer sells .
NGK CR9EK are what I use now ....
