    96 XP electrical problem causing bog

    Hi guys!

    I just picked up a 96 XP that had a known bogging issue. I did the fuel system clean and upgrade and it ran great!

    After a while on the river we pulled onto shore for a break. When we got back out the engine wouldn't rev too much. While limping it back to shore the problem cleared up for the rest of the day.

    Today I was out and the problem started from the beginning. I did notice this time that as soon as I touched the trim the engine would pick up for a split second. It didn't matter which direction for the trim, either. This has to be an electrical issue and I have no idea where to start. What do you guys think?

    For the record, all the gauges are also dead and have been since I bought it. They were not known to work prior to purchase. All the fuses in the gray box are good.

    Replace the rectifier. Do a search on this and you will find a wealth of info why this is the culprit.
