    Idle speed on 1996 GTX 787?

    What's the proper idle speed on a '96 GTX 787 when out of the water?
    I'm new and just fired up the second GTX after replacing all the grey fuel lines; first ski had a much lower idle but we're also having some other issues - suspect a bad rectifier.

    Brief run out of the water and not on a water hose has the idle from 2500-3000; another thread I read indicated this is about right - seems high but obviously I'm on a learning curve...

    I'll hook it up to hose later this afternoon time permitting; heading out to the Ranger game

    I'm assuming running on a garden hose does not have any impact on idle speed but being on the water will.
    Proper idle speed out of the water? On the water?

    Thanks again,

    should drop to about 1500 when you put it in the water

    When warmed up, my '97 idles at between 1200 and 1500 RPM. Out of water I haven't really let it idle but I'd say 2800-3000 is probably right. Of course that doesn't nessecarily mean much, I'm still working the kinks out of my GTX!
