    Polaris Genesis won't go over 5000 rpms...

    My friends ski and its new for him and this seems weird. Any reason why it would do this? Is there a reset or something. Its a '99 by the way. Thanks in advance. We are one the water as you read this.

    What diagnostics have you done so far?
    Compression?

    Anything unusual otherwise?
    Jumpy throttle response?
    Slightly low on power?

    Are the spark plugs all fresh, or at least looking the same as each other?

    Have you downloaded the Service Manual, via the FAQ section?

    Plugs are good, nothing seems unusual. THis is very odd to me.

    I'll download the service manual now.

    Thanks!

    I also have a 99 Genesis, and have had tons of fun fixing it when she isn't running right. My first question would be is it run with carbs or fuel injected?

    This is the carbed version.

    After a few weeks of headaches, I finally figured it out. There was a loose exhaust clamp and the hose was seperating at about 5000 rpms. GO FIGURE. New clamp and she runs great again!

    Thanks for all the help!
