    Pump hydraulic lock

    Ive heard about hydraulic lock in the pump at speeds over 80mph. Anyone know how its caused and how to avoid it . i heard of someone that got it at 85mph and went through the handlebars and front couling and spent 2 weeks in hospital.

    How fast are running?

    PX's want to start stuffing in the high 70's depending on mods.

    You don't have to worry about it on your ski.
    It's the P-X models that are prone to overstuffing.

    Overstuffing occurs when there is more water entering the pump tunnel than the pump can process. When this happens water backs up causing the rear of the ski to lift violently which results in a nose dive and the ski jolting left or right throwing you off.
