    2001 polaris virage question

    My 2001 polaris virage runs great, takes off out of the hole good with one rider. With 2 riders or pulling a knee board it acts like it is spinning out and takes a minute to take off and get on plane. Once the nose comes down a little its fine. Just seems to act different when the extra rear weight is on it.

    It also makes a metalic rattling sound when it is on the hose for flushing. Any thoughts on this? Thnaks.

    the sound when its on the hose on the trailer is normal.. if you can hear that inthe water then thats not good and you needtoo inspect your pump.

    also with the slugishness i would look at the prob from the intake grate and exit nozzle.. look for beat up propor stato blades.. the ski will be slower out of the hole but should not spin the prop at all

    Inspect the impeller and jet pump stator blades for damage or excess wear.

    Also check for signs of ventilation. The jet pump must be completely air sealed ahead of the impeller, otherwise thrust at low speeds is greatly reduced due to air bubbles getting sucked into the pump through the seal leaks.

    Also inspect or rebuild the through-hull bearing. If those seals are leaking air, you will get ventilation.
