Overstuffing is found when the volume of water entering the intake grate is grater than the volume of water exiting the pump nozzle therefore overstuffing the pump tunnel creating lots of unwanted pressure then that volume of water comes off the intake grate giving you that sensation of your ski trying to jump over its own wake. My VXR did it since I got it and it still does it. This is extremely dangerous since overstuffing causes bucking where the ski throws a hard right or left hand turn or just decides to take a nosedive (which has happened tome) tossing the rider when going at full speed. One way of alleviating the overstuffing is installing pressure relieve valves to release pump tunnel pressure at full speed. I am in the process of installing two 1/2" relieve valves on my VXR and have it all done and ready for testing Saturday morning and I will then post results, Julio...

OK, got it. I don't think I've experience it on mine however, my ride is bone stock but I don't know if that makes any difference. I've chopped the throttle plenty of times after doing a WFO run. Maybe it's because I'm 250 lbs. Next time out I'll pay more attention to see if I can feel it. Course with my luck I'll be fuc*#ng around and get myself tossed.

Over stuffing to me is popping my head out of the water and saying "wtf just happened?"..
