    Help needed

    My rxp 09 is having problems. When you hit the throttle from a dead stop the rpms redline and the jet ski doesn't shoot out of the gate as fast as normal. If you are already up near max speed and u hit the throttle everything acts fine it's just from a dead stop

    Here recently the jet ski now tops out at 58 mph

    What could be wrong? Is this covered in my warranty?

    Sounds like your pump liner may be worn. It will be very scorn if this is the problem. Easy fix if this is the problem. If that is the problem, you can remove the old one, turn it upside down, then put it back in until you get a new one in.
    Check your grate too while you are down there checking things out.
    BTW,
    Warranty will not cover this.

    What would it cost if I took it up to the shop to have them diagnose my issue and fix the problem do you think?

    Depends on the problem. If it's the liner, they will probably charge you $100 or more for the liner and a good 2 hours labor to change it out. Could be looking at $250.00.
    If they are not very trust worthy, they will tell you your prop is shot and you need one of those too. OEM prop probably cost $300+ and they might try and hit you for another couple hours of labor on that; even though they have to remove the prop to remove the liner.
    Call WFO. He can get you running for a fraction of that.

    Hey wfo sorry I haventcalled you yet I have been busy all week with planning my cruise and watching the weather. We were suppose to leave new Orleans on a cruise sept 4th but with tropical storm lee the cruise got delayed two days so we are sitting in new Orleans waiting to board the ship tomorrow.

    Alittle nervous cause this is the cruise I'm asking my gf to marry me on...

    Anyways I fully plan to bring u my ski on Monday. Can I drop it off somewhere at night? Cause I work by the airport so it would be 7 until I could get to u...


    Also could u have it done by the 17th? I might join Kirk and them in beaumont on the 18th I've been wanting to ride there
