06 VX 110 Deluxe Cavitation issue
My ski will only go 22-25 mph and I can't seem to get it fixed. Had the jet pump serviced, impeller replaced, and exhaust system checked for obstructions and still the same issue. The engine sounds very strong starts right up...but it acts the same as my Seadoo does with the learning key lanyard....it just refuses to go over 25. What am I missing here?

how are your RPM's? Have you inspected the intake grate?? Why did you replace the impeller and with what?? Was it damaged?

I don't recall exactly what the RPMs were at but they were high for the speed. The impeller and jet pump were serviced to try to solve this issue. The old impeller had a few nicks but nothing severe. It was replaced with a yamaha high alt...I don't know what the pitch of it is. When you say inpect the intake grate you mean make sure there is nothing in there right? Well the whole jet pump was off so I'd assume we'd see an obstruction unless there is something specific I should be looking for.

Did you have the pump housing (wear ring) replaced when you had the new impeller installed? The new impeller will be useless if the wear ring is worn because you won't have the tight seal needed between the impeller and ring.

Ok so you say like your Seadoo so are you sure you are doing 7k rpms when u are going 25 mph? Or is the motor bogging? How does the ski feel to 25 mph?

This may of may not be of help. When I hook it to the hose at home and rev the engine it doesn't seem as though it is spraying out water like it should. On my Seadoo again for example...hooked to the hose and rev'd to 7k it shoots water clear across the shop, the yamaha will spray water but a mere couple of feet at best.

By pump tunnel do you mean the space between the intake grate and the pump? If so, it look ok to me. There is no water in the ski at all and never had any cooling issues with it what so ever. I put it back on the water and it is at 5500 rpm at 25 mph.
