White Smoke?! Video.
2007 Kawasaki 250x with 35 hours.
Tried the ski today for the first time. Cold start, it started quick and I put it in the water for a five minute ride.
I let it warm up for a bit (about a minute or two) then picked up speed gradually.
It cut the throttle around 40mph and felt like the rev limiter kicked in. I let off and went full throttle again and it did 58 mph at about 7.6k rpm.
The whole time it was letting out white smoke from the exhaust even when I took it out of the water.
I took the video above showing this.
The smoke is odorless.
Lubricant in the engine?
This video is after the 5 minute ride when I was rinsing it off. I had the water connected to it.
On a side note, does anyone have a users manual or know where I can download one for the 250x?

Thought of this also, but then I linked it with the power cutting off and only being able to get it up to 58mph (not GPS) and it spooked me a bit.
Any ideas about the stutter at 40mph other than letting the ski warm up more than a a few minutes?
Owners manual anyone? I'm pissed it didn't come with one although I was able to find the service manual.

Anyone know why it would stutter or get stuck at 40mph then when I let off and get back on it it starts climbing again up
The peak speed was 58mph and RPM was around 7.6k.

could be a bad plug causing the stutter, rpms are spot on so guessing your speedo wheel needs an adjustment or get a gps
