    slow out the hole

    i just got a 04 rxp and its a little on the slow side out the hole compared to my friends. im seeing about 7750 rpm and have it 70 on an empty tank. i look at the wear ring with a flash light and can see a few lines in it. what might be causing this..... also is it kinda normal for this thing to get like 2-3 hrs on a tank??

    7750 is low, but 70 on the dream-o-meter is about right. Try to use a gps. Is it new? Stock prop? Oil level right? Need more details!

    Is it cavitating when you give it gas from idle? If you are not familiar with that, its when the prop doesn't load/gets air and spins inside the pump. Usually sounds like wuh-wuh-wuh then waaaaah once it catches. That's a sure sign of a damaged wear ring. I wish they'd put SS ones these skis stock. 11k you think it would be a stock item!
