    First Ride On 250x Sucked!

    Hi all took my shinny new ultra 250x out for its first ride today. This ski is brand new zero hour never been wet. Ski started right up. I idled around smoothly for five minutes. I was thinking this is great. Then it was time to get up on plane and go for a slow ride. Hit the gas and cavitation big time. The engine missed as well. Once up on plane I can get around OK. But I could not get it above 38MPH even at full throttle. Would not go above 5k RPM and no more than 5lbs boost, all the time missing and cavitating under load. Under no load runs smooth. Pissed off I take it in. It was glass water conditions but I thought I would pull the drain plugs anyway. I could not believe it, I think there was more of lake Erie in my boat than in the lake. Popped the seat and the water level was about two inches up on the intercooler. And that was after it was draining for a short bit. Got it home and took another look and it looks like all the hoses are connected including the exhaust. Anyone have any ideas on this one?

    Thanks

    Take it in to the dealer, you have a hose loose or one popped off.

    Could very well be that because the smoke would also make it run slow like the original poster was experiencing. No fresh air, no go.

    You Polaris roots guys are pretty good at this stuff.
    I'd say they are probably right on the money, just had the same problem on my Matrix last month.

    i agree it has to be a hose off somewhere, what else would pump water into it? I dropped it off at the dealer today. I will post what they say bout it. I was using the "man" key so it should have gone over 5k.

    Thanks!
