    1st ride after IR holeshot kit install

    Ok I put my ski in the lake to set the valve for the holeshot kit.Ive got it set so at 3500rpm it seems to flow at full force.My question is..the water steadily reaches that point.Is it supposed to reach 3500rpm and then just open and gush out?Or is the water flow getting faster and faster normal?Also when I tested it after I set it I would gun it WOT from a stand still and it would bog for about 2 seconds and then kick in.Is this normal?Thanks everyone.

    free low exhaust,d-plate intake grate,trim tabs,flame arrestors,remote jet adjusters,retainers and couplers,pump cone and now the holeshot kit.Honestly I only rode the ski once before putting the holeshot kit on.kinda dumb of me.Just wondering about the bogging and how the flow is supposed to be before 3500rpms.

    Its normal for it to leak a little before reaching full flow, assuming you have the hard ball in the valve.(most likely). Mine would start to leak about 2800 rpms and was full flow about 3500 rpms.
    Are you saying that the flow would bog, or the ski?

    I don't think a "little" leakage is a problem, if it starts at an rpm range well above idle. If its leaking pretty bad at idle speed, there could be a problem loading the waterbox and you might need to clean out the valve or replace the ball. My kit came with a "soft" ball as backup. Forgive me for asking a dumb question but did you install the gasket that blocks off water flow from the pipes water jacket to the waterbox?
