Thread: 200 Virage TXI

    200 Virage TXI

    resently bought a 02 txi, me and the wife finaly got a chance to take it to the lake for awhile today, this is out first jet ski and had a good time on it, it runs great but when you hold the throttle wide open for a while it runs good then fades off like it is running out of fuel, It can be at a n idle and you can hit the gas and it gets up on plane fast and takes off great but after awhile its like it losing fuel pressure, u then can back out of it a lil and hammer on it again and will do the same. going to rig up a fuel pressure gauge i can watch while riding it and c what that tells me. How does a person run one of these on a garden hose like i do my boat?

    Check fuel pressure and look at replacing the throttle position sensor (TPS) - about $75.

    You can get a flush kit to hook a harden hose up to the cooling rail....but you still can't run it for a minute or so or you'll burn up the pump bearings.

    Ok i went out and dug around and found a nice gauge and some fittings to get me hocked up to the test port on the fuel rail. It has 0psi when ideling or reved up, so i pinched the hose off and get around 25-30psi. After doing some reading it seams the fuel presure regulator is starting to fail, if that is the case cant i just put one in the return line? and if so how much presure does it need? (raced dirt cars for the last 10 years so can get a litle crafty to make it work lol. And thanks for the info and help you ski peole are great and am a big polaris fan!!!!! Oh and did some looking at the cooling hoses and going to try and t into the supply line so i can run it for however long i need and not have to worry about burning something up in the process.

    There's a Kawasaki in-line part that has been used and reported to work. It's a hell of a lot easier than pulling the fuel tank to get at the factory one.

    I'm kinda new to the wrenching on a ski part, as well; but I still fail to see how teeing into the cooling rail will keep the bearings in your pump from cooking?

    I didn't read that the first time. It will not work.

    The only way to run the ski longer while on the hose is to remove the jet pump. The jet pump is cooled only when it is sitting in the water. No coolant water flows over it when running on the hose.

    In regard to your fuel pressure, have you looked to see if it just fell of in the tank like they do most of the time? If so, you can put it back on and not have to get the inline regulator. As for the TPS, I dont feel that it is an issue unless your not getting smooth acceleration through the throttle range. If it will plane out and then slowly come back down in RPM, that's a fuel pressure issue.

    I haven't had a chane to look into the tank and sounds a lot easier to just put an inline regulator and prob$y have one out in the shop.what does the presure need to be? It starts up and runs good, other than the fuel deal it runs god,only complaint so far is the screen never shuts offm It set over nite and when I got it out of the trailer it was still onm. Ahgain thanks for all the great infom

    The fuel pressure should be at least 20 PSI. In regard to the MFI, its normal for it to stay on and display the compass rose, fuel level, oil level, clock and locked or unlocked on the bottom.
