RXT 260 problem
When I used ski last year for the last time my niece went to drive it and it acts like something is in the impeller blocking water intake engine revs but goes nowhere. Had problem once before and reverse gate was stuck halfway down but turned of restarted and it was fine but didn't work this time. Curious if anyone else has had this issue before I get raped by the dealer again

That's not much detail. What year? Is it making any noise? Have to checked to make sure the gate is up? Is it loaded with sea grass?

My friend has an 08 RXT that did exactly the same. Turns out his was a very bad prop n WR. Maybe you sucked up something n destroyed the WR or prop or both.
On his it also vibrated like crazy, shaking n rattling the bodywork.
Poke your head under and take a look in the grate, it'll give you a clue maybe.

There are quite a few things to look at.
1. Something could be stuck in the intake grate and or impeller.
2. Wear ring could be wore from sucking something up. eg rocks, sand
3. Carbon ring could going out. Check to see if the ski takes on water while trying
4. Prop could be damaged.

They did have bad driveshafts in 2010 on the rxt 260, i bet the splines on the shaft and gone!

I know one thing I would remove the iBr, pump and closely inspect the impeller, wear ring, drive shaft splines all myself before I took it anywhere!

Where are you located. Someone on here might be able to refer you to someone who will not rape you on fixing it.
Also call in your vin # to a seadoo dealer to see if there are any free updates.
