    Question gp 800 problem Neep help!!

    I went to the river today to put my ski in the water and it starts up fine, But when i go to take off it revs up but doesnt really go anywhere but when i get going it doesnt go over 24 mph. I then had the ski off for a little just talking to my buddies and when i started it to leave it just went normal but as soon as i let off the gas(about 50 yrd) it started to do it again. It doesnt always just rev up some times it just takes a little bit to get to 24 mph. Does anybody have any ideas on what it could be or were i can start looking?

    sounds like you have something caught up in your pump tunnel or in your intake grate. crawl underneath and check it out.

    just a guess but it could be a striped out drive shaft.

    id also check the impeller/prop for damage and check the wear ring.

    it sound like something that happened to me i only a tinny little twig stuck in the pump tunnel.

    cavitated like crazy then once i got up to plain it was alright then when i slow down and tried to get going again it would cavitate
