96 XP issue!
I have posted this issue before last year before I winterized my seadoo, but I am still having the same issue. I changed my sparks as I thought it could have been 1 cylinder not firing but the issue is still here.
Basically, the issue happens almost every time I start the engine and start riding. I open the throttle and the engine pumps VERY hard and slow, and it happens for almost up to a minute and it eventually lets go and revs fast and smooth.
I took a video out of water with my phone as I was sure it would happen.
Please take the time to watch the video I have posted below, as you will see it starts up running fine then bogs down, then again near the end the engine lets go and runs like normal.
Thank you anyone for your help if you have any ideas what the issue is.... also the carbs were rebuilt earlier last year.

Is this a stock ski? Have you tried trimming the spark plug wires on both ends? Have you tried this with the red wire from the rectifier unplugged? I would start there.

Plug wires ... Mine used to do that too

Your rectifier is bad 100%.
Do a YouTube search for 96 xp bad rectifier. It is identical to your problem. It's common

Unplug the red wire from the rectifier and go for a ride, I bet it clears it up. If so, just replace the rectifier

Only take it for a short ride with a strong battery with the red wire unplugged. Unplugging the red wire will stop the battery from recharging from what I understand. If you do have to change out the rectifier, there are also three yellow wires. They don't have to be reconnected in any order. I always had a spare rectifer, spark plugs and solenoid in my toolbox when I had my 785's. All a 5 minute replacement that saves your day at the beach and a trip to the dealer.
