    Wont go over 8mph

    I have a 1996 Yamaha Wave Venture 700 and i can not get it to go over 8 mph. It will start up and idle greatin and out of the water but with the throttle wide open it wont go. Looking for any idea's of what could be going on. Thanks.

    Did you check the pump for debris?

    Yeah i pulled the housing off the back of the unit and the grate underneath and it all seams to be in great shape.

    The cdi has done this to me in the past. But that was found after going threw the fuel system first, clean carbs, fuel filter, plugs. If that is all good I would try the cdi. Runs great out of the water, revs fine, put it in the water and goes no where. 5-6 mph

    I have already gone through the carbs and fuel filter. Is there anyway to test the cdi to see if it is bad?

    How many RPMs is the engine doing?

    I dont know for sure but it does not feel like it is reving up all the way. I tried to go through the fuel system and that did not help at all.
