Sudden rpm drop
I was riding my ski for at least 3 hours one day.. and right before getting back into shore. My ski would not rev above 5000 rpm.... Took it out again yesterday and still the same... What should i be looking at?
these are the only two things i can think of. Please advise.

does it otherwise accelerate/run normally? Is the onboard diagnostic showing any codes?

it accelerated fine... but didn't feel any power and the rpm stops around 5000 rpm...felt like i was on a 1100cc.... the onboard diagnostic didn't show any errors.

i had also changed the spark plugs, could it be the supercharger shaft?

what oil are you using? i had same symptom when i used synthetic, reuslted in a slipping sprag clutch.

To be very honest i am not sure... nut i purchase the oil from the Yamaha dealer.... and i have actually never had a problem... even the other 8 skis that i service we've all used the same oil..

sounds like clutch to me , pull your air intake off and put ur finger in the super charger and see if the sc impeller turns both ways it should only turn one way if it gos both ways the clutch is gone
p.s dont run the motor while your finger is in the sc

it's a clutch problem, on a 2011 it could be the teeth broke off.

The really weird thing is that.. a friend and I both were out riding for 3 hours... on our way back.. literally at the same time both of our skis had a sudden drop of rpm... we had stopped to have a small word... as soon as we fired up both of our rpms stuck at 5,000
