Acceleration from standing start
Hey guys and girls
What can I do to improve off the line acceleration?
It seems like 2 -3 seconds before my Seadoo gets going.
I have a 2007 RXP (215) and it bounces off the rev limiter while standing still
My friend has a 2007 RXP NA and his is initially quicker of the line.

Check the condition of your impeller and wear ring. Sounds like you are having cavitaion issues, this is a common cause of that.

Impeller has few nicks so I was suspecting that but wanted to ask pros.
Not much time to ride left this summer so will upgrade over the winter
Sorry for the noob question but what would be a good prop for the stock 215 RXP???

If you search cavitation you will find alot of post on this. I have owned an 04 and now a 05 and both did this. I fixed both by replacing a few parts. Wear ring, prop, carbon seal and boot. Make sure the large O-ring seal is also in good condition.

+1 on the wear ring. Also, when you start off the line, vts down all the way. Then as you hit the throttle, raise the vts. The Stock prop is a 13/18. A 14/19 will be too tall for an OEM ski.

can anyone recommend what prop to get?
Got 2 senior members - one said solas 14/19 would work other said it wouldn't

I'd do a 14/19r if you put a 4 inch air intake on it, which is a good cheap mod to do too
