    2006 RXT Doesn't run right

    Just took out my ski & it doesn't run good at all. It had been in storage for the last year. Started up fine, but as I started to run it fast it would surge fast for a fraction of a second then bog down. It never would go to top speed and kept getting worse. It went to limp mode to get back to shore. No beeps or warning lights. I'm thinking fuel. Took fuel line off to rail & fuel looks clean & comes out with key on. Put sea foam cleaner in tank & tried to clean injectors. Ran it for 5 minutes at home with hose & when you reved it up & then released to idle it would die. Now it won't start. Took supercharger off & it's fine. Re-set slip and going back together now. What should I check next?

    You would be amazed at how much of a difference fresh gas and spark plugs make, definitely try it first before trying to diagnose it with a more severe problem.

    Did you ever run a compression test?

    did the ski get winterized properly? If any water was left in the intercooler it could have frozen and then caused a leak. It is possible your intercooler is spitting water into your intake.

    Pull the plugs out, hold the throttle all the way open and crank the engine. If water shoots out you have a problem.

    You got it right. Intercooler is leaking. My oil looks like no water got in it. I started it up with the intercooler return hose off and it sounds back to normal. Should I spray something in the intake to fog the engine?

    Coils might be going bad.

    EDIT: never mind see you found your problem
