Vibrations, high rpms, ow speeds..ugh!
Good day all-
My '05 FXHO was acting up yesterday. The week before it was just fine so not sure how come it could be fine one minute and not the next.
Anyhoo...The most notable thing is vibrating. Try to crank that baby up from the no wake zone and that's the first thing I noticed. The second thing I noticed was it was churning at about 7,000 rpm at 15 mph while the other ski was going the same speed at 4,000 rpm. The vibrations just seemed to get worse the faster you tried it to go. So, I limped back to the marina and parked it. We did pull it briefly to see if there were any ropes, etc in the intake but didn't see anything right off (doesn't mean there isn't some fishing line or something we couldn't see). The oil level seemed fine, spark plugs were changed about a month ago but I doubt that has anything to do with it. I'm thinking impeller myself--any ideas? thanks!

I spoke to the service dept at the local Yamaha dealer and of course they gave me a myriad of issues I could be having with my vibrations. The plugs are new, just replaced a month ago and since it was running fine the week before, I doubt it's a bent shaft (as they said it might be) Cylinder mis-firing or not working? How can you tell? The ski does have about 170 hours on it. Would it be a good idea to remove the ride plate and intake grates off and look inside to make sure I don't have junk wedged in there before dropping a load at the dealer?
