    New 2010 CHALLENGER 230 SE (510HP) PROBLEMS

    Hello guys,

    Just bought the new 2010 Seadoo Challenger 230 SE with the 255 HO motors, so i decided to pot her in the water this morning. Please keep in mind the boat is brand new. I launched her in the water and everything was fine until i passed the "no wake" zone, as soon as i tried to accelerate one motor was @ 3000rpm and the other was fluctuating from 4000-2700rpm. The boat felt like it was dragging itself and could not get on plane.

    -I checked impellers, they are clean as a whistle
    -Only have 1 hr on the motors

    Should this be happening or should i say is this common on a brand new boat?

    What could cause this? please help.
