    Ski Bogging Down

    Here's the story: I put the trim all the way up and go about 4000 rpms to make myself some waves. When I take the 180° turn to hit the waves and jump them, my ski tends to bog down afterward.
    It doesn't happen every time but often enough for me to wonder why. Is this the waterbox being too empty? Or maybe the TOPS? If it is exhaust related, are the chances of my manifold bell corroding increased each time it happens? I was thinking holding the throttle open too much while in the air could do it?
    It doesn't always happen off my own wake though. That's what leads me to believe it only happens when the ski is at a certain angle or when the throttle is held too long out of the water.
    Just trying to make the next time out a safer ride with no bogging
    Thanks

    how can it be bypassed? are there any ill effects?
    I figure if my ski tips over, it's not going to matter whether the engine is on or off since I have the rear air intake and flo-rites..

    a view people have sufferd from this including my self,i cant see it being tops as you come of throttle as u jump,i thought it was water mist comeing threw rear vent,someone else thinks its water in the ski as front goes up its hitting electrics or air intake.

    Bypass the switch by connecting the black and grey/black wires together. This will bypass it. There is another thread about this. You can cut the wires at the valve and connect together or put a jumper between them or a jumper in the plug, or connect together at the fuse box.

    if u ask me its not this TOPS or whatever its your fuel rail losing prime for a split second from jumping and raising the front of your ski to high! i know if i REALLY LIFT the NOSE of my ski doing SLOW JUMPS my boat will ALOMOST DIE from FUEL STARVATION every time and my buddy Doobies boat does the EXACT SAME THING! i know u would think since the rail would be downward of the fuel tank in that position/NOSE UP it WOULDNT do it but it DOES! PROMISE!

    when i make those type wakes i have the TRIM MAXED UPWARD and the NOSE goes stright up and it will virtually kill the ski EVERY TIME if u get the nose high enough! so i venture it your fuel rail losing prime as i figured it to be on me and Doobies units as they run like scoldded dogs the rest of the time!
