    Sea Doo guy's first ride on 250X

    Well, I'm a die hard sea doo fan but got to ride a 250X this weekend; I loved the handling and the holeshot but i noticed the top end grunt is non existant, what restriction is causeing the lack of top end grunt? It shows full boost but it does not pull all the way through..
    Another scary thing for my was the off throttle steering, I was flying down a twisty river when I came to the turn around spot, let off throttle to about quarter throttle then it kicked in and shot me towards the bank It was kind of scary,if I would not of had a over-run creek I would have put that ski on the dirt.
    For a big ski I was surprised with the handling.

    For a stock ski, this is probably what you will expect. Just remember, all stock skis have deficiencies. It's only a matter of time before the kinks are worked out... top speed for the 11 ft craft has been sporatic at best. Give it a little time.

    There is a noticable surge, both in off-idle steering, and if you BLIP the throttle.

    There are lots of folks working on it.

    Handling is incredible, isn't it.

    It is being limited on top, did you notice the rpms were backing down.

    No, the RPM's did not come down they just did'nt pull up top like it did on the bottom.

    Roots type SC for ya right there maybe? Great bottom end, but torque curve falls off at higher RPM.
