    08 Ultra 250x hesitating slipping feeling.

    Just purchased an 08 Kawasaki Ultra250x and just took it out for 1st time. Upon test drive on full throtle it started sliping like wear ring on seadoos. Impellar looks good. Is kawasaki's version of a wear ring called a vane guide? Any other ideas or things I should look at?
    Thanks

    You either have a slipping s/c belt or excessive prop to pump clearance.

    Very good idea to check that belt tension since u just picked the ski up. And pull the spark plugs and never seize them as well. Have fun!
