    WOT

    Hey guys, I have a couple of friends I rode with yesterday and had a blast here in the Intercoastal waterways in Virginia Beach. My question is this, these Seadoo motors that are completely stock, how do they hold up to WOT for several miles? Now I have a 2010 RXT-X 260 with 56hrs on it now (now mech. problems what so ever) and another friend has the same and another has a 0 rxt 215 stageI kit. Now running in the flat out water, I held mine wide open enough to see 69/70 a couple of times and backed off after a few secs. Now these guys keep WOT throttle for MILES!!! Will these engines handle this type of RPMS, but then again I guess they are high rev engines. Just curious...Thanks and also attaching a clip.

    We got that beat....all smoothwater ride is just over an hour WOT 90% of the time, only slowing if we pass a boat or barge. If we ride from Belle Chasse to Grand Isle in smoother water, I can be on 2 bars when I get there in 50min. These engines will run 8100rpm under full load until the tank is emty if the oil is clean and you are not hooking/unhooking constantly. Then the s/cer clutch will get hot and ALL bets are off.....
    They burn more fuel in an hour at WOT than the tank holds.

    So when you say S/C heats up, then does that mean just the S/C gets fried from unhooking or when unhooking like that and RPMS shoot up, does this destroy the engine as well?

    The hooking/unhooking at wot heats and kills the s/cer clutch, this in turn can take out the timing chain from s/cer clutch debris (broken washers, and such).
