    2001 Virage. Wont rev past 4500 rpms.

    Ok guys I got a brain teaser for you. My 2001 Polaris Virage 700 carb/ lost spark and would not start. It ran perfectly before that. So first thing I did was put a new battery in it and cleaned the connections. Still no spark. So I replaced the CDI and I finally got spark. However after taking it on the water it would only rev to 4500 rpms. I seems pretty doggy on the take off also. So after reading some posts I replaced the stator, coil, wires, plugs. Still same issue. I then rebuilt the carb just for the heck of it, because like I said before it ran perfect up until the no spark issue. There is no warning lights on the display flashing. I blew out all the fuel lines and drained and refilled the fuel tank. Still same issue. It does run perfect on land. It will redline all day long if I wanted it to. Just under load it has issues. Compression is great. I tried holding the bilge button while riding it to see if that helps but no change. So basically it has all new ignition components ( not used) and fuel system rebuilt. Could the start/stop regulator cause this problem? Sorry for the long story but I wanted to be informative. Any help would be greatly apreciated.

    try unplugging the console it could be triggering limp mode with no warning light.

    Wouldnt limp mode cause it not to rev up fine on land either? Because it revs up just find on land.

    could be a broken reed, is it running on both cylinders at 4500?
