    RPM and Take off Question

    When i start out in my buddies RXP is spins really bad and then finally grabs and takes off, also the RPMs only go up to 7900 on glass, mine was doing much better at 8150-8100 easily. What do we need to check, the dealer said the pump, wear ring and prop were fine. Is there too much oil in it???

    The dealer is more than likely wrong. If you are cavitating out of the hole more than likeley the plastic wear ring is shot.

    that will also rob you of RPM's

    Well, if it was my $$ i would say yes. Skat sells the ss wear rings for about $240. Talk to Glen Perry and tell him i sent you.

    just

    just checked the oil and took a bunch out, it was filled up way too much... 3/8" or so too much on the dipstick..

    Did you warm up your engine 3-4min with the flow kit hooked up, made sure your ski was pretty level and let it sit ~5min before checking it?
