2001 XLT 1200 boges down in the water
just bought a used 2001 XLT 1200. Starts and revs great. once I put it in the water it starts with no problem. when I try to accelerate it just bogs down. I would try to pump the gas and the engine would rev but no acceleration. compression in all 3 cylinders is 92. is that right?any help...thanks

no its not right, even is good, what type of compression tester are you using? how many hours on ski? thats very low compression stock is 130 most all 66v PV motors with around 160 hours have 115 compression if that tells you anything but so try another compression tester and not a old one or a harbor frieght one.

if its shaking violently the splines on your shaft. are shot.
Also to do a proper compression check hold throttle full open when cranking.
wrap lanyard over throttle lever or ziptie it.

Does not shake violently. ok I have 99, 99, 101. it starts and runs good out of the water. in the water it bogs down when I hit the throttle.

I had same issues. On hose runs good. Starts in water and runs but once you start getting into throttle just buh and dies. Clogged returns in the carbs.

ratrace, how are you performing the comp test?

you may have bad gas or the carbs need to be cleaned........

Your carbs need to be rebuilt, if you continue to run it that way you will risk blowing it up.

rebuilding the carbs now. #1 carb the return little tiny hole was blocked, #2 had a little salt in it, #3 PTO had even more salt.
