    Holes in Impeller (03 XLT 1200)

    Hey guys!

    Totally new to the site and to waverunners. Just bought an 03 XLT1200 and had noticed small holes in the impeller (one on each blade). I thought they might be caused by cavitation. Three rides later and the holes are about twice the size. The ski also cavitates pretty badly at speeds < 20 mph.

    I'm thinking of one more ride and I'll have to replace the impeller. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Replace it. I wouldn't ride it again.

    dont risk it, that impeller turning that water has a lot of load on it. replace it before it causes more damage...

    Thanks. I'm going to pull the pump out and replace the impeller.
