12 rxt-x running poor/slow and stumped...
2012 rxt-x stock. I cant figure out what's wrong. I have 86 hours on her. It was running great last week when I went out. Then I took it out a few days ago and all I got was 7400ish rmps and only 61 mph. It was breaking up a bit too. So, I changed the plugs, checked the hoses, checked prop and wear ring, oil is clean and not overfilled and all looked well. I took it for a ride today and it was still running slow and had low rpms. I pulled the intake off and felt for play on the charger. I couldn't turn it but I did have very minimal movement back and forth. very very subtle. Is this normal?
The maintenance required light is on when it starts then turns off. I thought this was a scheduled light as opposed to a check engine light. Can someone please advise and guide me in the right direction. I'd like to fix this if its a small problem before it sits in the dealer for the last few weeks of the season. Thanks in advance.

Check your inner cooler.
My ic crapped out and it did the same things yours is doooing now.
My ic took a dump at around 50 hrs.

thanks for the quick reply. I just had it replaced 5 hours ago. Waited weeks for a dealer to get one in. Heart of the summer and sea-doo couldn't get them out quick enough. My guy had a waiting list for skis needing new intercoolers.

Gotta love the warranty!!!
Just doo a search and you can find the best way to test the ic...

Breaking up like engine not running smooth or pump cavitation? Check through the intake grate and look at the impeller, make sure nothing is damaged or wrapped around the shaft.

Breaking up like the feeling of a misfire or shitty plugs. And it has different symptoms then when the intercooler started leaking. I guess I will be testing the new intercooler. I cant rule it out. Thanks guys. I appreciate the help.

Possibly a clogged Injector????
Run a double dose of Injector cleaner thru it.

So I added about a quart and a half of oil. I tested it warm and level. I was surprised it burned that much oil over the season. No leaks, no smoke. The dealer test rode it and they said it ran and looked good. I test rode it after picking it up and its fine. Really weird.
Could running a ski low on oil cause it to turn less rpms? From what I read I only know of overfilling causing it to run slower. Thanks!

Never heard of a ski running like crap because it was low on oil..
