    96 xp cavitates

    I have a 96 stock XP. Starts, idles and runs fine. The problem I have is
    when I accelerate from dead still the motor winds up but the ski hesitates
    for a moment before it jumps up on plane. Once past 7 or 8 mph
    it goes like a rocket all the way to 55 to 60 mph. Any one have a
    similar problem?

    have a look at your pump. could be one of several things. either your wear ring is toast, , your impellor is damaged, you need to re-seal the pump shoe or you are missing the foam ring between the pump and pump shoe. it could also be the carbon seal/accordian boot allowing air in, but then you would probably have water leaking into the hull.

    Not sure if this is any help but my 95 does the same thing if I forget to trim the nozzle down. It tends to jump straight out of the water when I first pin the throttle. Karl
