Another stupid question LOL
OK you guys will get sick of me, but here it goes anyway.
98 XPL and a 98 GSXL what RPM's should they be turning and what speed. I am about 270 pounds it seemed like the XPL was turning around 6600 but speedo read about 55 MPH. The guy I got it from said it had an aftermarket impeller (says Skat Track on a sticker on back) so I guess I was expecting about 60 MPH I didnt hold it wide open for a long time, but it did seem to peak quickly. The water is only about 36 degrees right now in the lakes in Maine in fact I had to go around some ice still out there.
Next the GSXL seems noisey almost like a rod knock in a 4 stroke at idle and slight throttle then goes away. My old Polaris was noisey as hell because of the driveline. Are they noisey or should I have it looked at closer. It runs like crazy seems fast guages dont work so hard to tell till I dig out the GPS, but it felt good

6800 rpm is what most stock skis "should run",speedos suck,gps or radar is the only effective way to measure speed. I look for rpm.
Most Seadoos have a "knock" at idle,its the driveline. Seadoo has a kit that will help but will always knock at little at low idle speeds. Set idle for 3000 out of water which will be about 1500 in water.

Thanks I was real worried about the motor I dont want to put a rod threw the side if I could replace a connecting rod LOL What about really cold water, will it make them run rough or is it bad for them?
