    99 GP1200 Question???

    I finally was able to test out my new to me 99 GP1200. All in all it ran great. I have one concern and not sure if its a big issue or how to fix it. The ski seemed to just spin the prop alot and not take off when going between 5-10mph. Is this normal? When i would try to accelerate full throttle the RPMs would hit the limiter and the ski wouldnt go unless i feathered the throttle til it got up to like 15 mph. Is there anything that can fix this issue? Other then that the ski ran great. Thanks.

    This sounds like an impeller issue and or a impeller to housing clearance issue. If there is too much space between the impeller and housing this will cause what you are describing. Fix this and you will be much happier. The GP's are known for a great holeshot, you need to correct this.

    When the ski did hook up it was awesome and worked well. Hit 62.2 on the gps on this stock ski. How would i go about fixing the clearance issue? Do i need a new impeller?? Thanks again.

    Do you have a service manual? Can you take some pics of the impeller with the intake grate removed? Do a search for service manuals. There is a printable version on this site. This is vital for a do it yourselfer.
