Im new to the pwc so I need to know some things. I have the 07 FX HO. When Im at a dead stand still and floor it, it seems to hit the limiter, like its losing trackson or something like if you took a motorcycle in neutral and just gas it all the way. That's the best I can explain it, is this suppose to happen? Or should it just GO?
Now if I start rolling just a tad then it dont do it. Thanks a lot guys, Rod

It should go sometimes you can get a little slipping but for the most part it should go. Sounds like you are experiencing cavitation. It can be from a damaged impeller or wear ring. A pump plug kit may be what you need. They are in the on-line store (upper left hand corner).
This is a good read

even if my ski only has 7 hours on it??????

you could damage an impeller in the first 3 seconds. Depends what you sucked up. As stated have the impeller and ring checked first and go from there. If under warranty, the dealer will surely let you know if it was owner caused impeller damage.
When did the problem start, from day one and hour zero? or later.

Assuming wear ring and impellor are ok.....
The pump plug kit is cheaper here at the store so buy it here. The link below gives a better description of what it is. I would bet that 8 out of 10 owners on the yamaha side have one installed. It simply works.

I also have an 06 FX H.O. I too have a slight cavitaion problem from a dead stop. going to do a PPK, intake grate and Jim's plate this winter. can any one tell me the diff. between the Riva velosity stacks and the RD ones. price is almost half!?

but the R&D ones are rubber and the riva ones are alloy
i have also heard the riva ones are taller but can not confirm
i have the riva ones on my ski and I'm happy with them
i was always going to just cut out the flame arester part on the stock intakes but never bothered
