    1200 STX-R Sluggish today?

    Hi guys,

    Ive had this ski for a little bit now and its been fantastic...but today i had issues.

    When i accelerated it would not go above 10km p/h and felt extremely sluggish. Then it would go back to being a little better (but not normal), then back to the 10km p/h problem when i turned it off and on.

    I was struggling with this all afternoon. Then in my last run, it shot back to normal (and nearly threw me off as i was used to the sluggishness lol)

    Just wondering if anyone could offer some insight?

    The only thing that was different was my fuel. I had half a tank of Shell E10, but due to being out of my area, i had to fill up with Caltex 95. Did the mixing of fuel lead to this (and what should i do with the rest of the tank if so)?

    I also read elsewhere that there may have been some obstructions in my intake. Is there any good threads of articles on how to check the entire intake properly for reeds etc?

    Thanks guys!

    Did the idle sound OK,
    What was your maxrpm when it was acting up
    Sounds like spark plugs fouled.
    If you suspect pump, a good flash light and a little mirror are great for looking at the pump and impellar.
