    I have a 97 xp with 787, the thing runs great but in rough water it bogs down, I changed the fuel lines and carb filters and this didnt help. My dealer who is not on a lake said there is nothing wrong, well obvioulsy there is it never did this before, I have a house rented on wold lake next week for a family vacation and want to take this. Is there anyone in michigan who can help me and get this thing working in less then a week???? anyone please, willing to travel anywhere in michigan to drop it off if you think you can help Thanks!!!

    depending on what side you are on...contact member "jim" he can get you back on the water asap. you may have a grounding issue imo. ive had my ski run flawlessly on glass and once I hit a wake it would bog/die out a bit. try relocating your ground as they tend to corrode and cause issues like this.

    Let me know if you don't get it fixed. There are other great resources right here in MI.

    I don't think he is watching this anymore. He did not pm or contact me.

    Spent an afternoon at Jims house this week and he had me back up and running pretty effortlessly!

    He worked on my ski too. He is VERY knowledgable and fast. He will get you going in no time.
