    new ultra 250x only 51 miles an hour?

    Hi i am new to this site so hi all!!!
    Anyway i buoght a new 250x and all i can get out of it is 51 miles an hour.
    Reading the other posts this is really slow.
    But yet it seems to have a lot of power otherwise.
    Any thoughts on this would be great.
    New to the jet ski world.

    Welcome James!

    Your paddle wheel is probably out of adjustment, do a search or check your service manual for adjustment.

    I'll bet if you pick up a gps, you'll find you are going faster unless navigating some serious ocean rollers.

    Bummer... What kind of RPM are you getting??? Check the Oil level per Skips info on a previous post... Sounds like the motor ain't spinning the way she should be... Only other thing off the top would be if you've sucked up some crud and damaged the prop and lining...

    How many rpm's are you turning? Some more info would help diagnosing your problem.

    Id take a look at the inside of the intercooler ... Id bet the inside IC fins are covered with the oil mess I had not long ago that will deff cut the horse power big time
