    2007 RXP- half speed, smoke, high RPM

    Hello. I have a 2007 SeaDoo RXP. I ride it Thursday for the 4th of July and I noticed it is not going nearly as fast as it usually does. I was running at 7000 RPM and I could only reach about 35 MPH which is half of what I generally go. I did not notice any strange noise or anything as it still ran smoothly at that speed, but I noticed smoking coming from the back which was very minimal to non-existent previously. My buddy and I did not find anything in the intake but it was harder to check it at the beach. Any ideas? I am definitely not mechanically- sound with these so please be patient with me. Thanks for the help!

    Sounds like there could be something stuck in the pump.

    sure it was smoke and not water vapor?

    Yeah it was definitely smoke. It had never had anything like this. I assumed it had something to do with oil but I don't know how that could affect the speed.

    Was it your first time out this year? Try changing the plugs first and go from there.

    Might have a stick or something stuck in the pump also.

    If the OP is spinning 7000 rpm, then he should be going faster than 35mph.

    Replace your wear ring. It's probably trashed.

    Had a tiny chip of bark stuck under one blade... ate the wear ring. Would rev and sound normal, but wouldn't go anywhere. It did vibrate a bit revving up though...

    +1 on it being something pump related. The low RPMs and speed make me think the same. as far as the smoke goes i think a little bit is normal but maybe the other things going on made you notice it more? I freaked out one time and thought mine was smokin real bad so i took it in and a shop said it was fine nothing was wrong lol.
