    Idle speed. Help please

    I just bought a 2008 Seadoo wake edition 215 horsepower and I was wondering about the idle speed. What is a normal RPM range for the jet ski in gear at idle. My jet ski seems to idle a little high, but I am new to the PWC world and have always owned boats. It idles at 1800 RPM in gear which seems high to me.

    Welcome to the forum.
    1,800 rpm is correct.

    Greetings--

    Several of us just had this discussion yesterday whiel riding. 1800 seems to be the norm across a range of SeaDoo models and years.

    Now- that being said, some of the folks' skis ran faster at idle speed than others by .5 to .75 mph *shrugs*
