    rxt problems

    I ran up on shallow spot at the lake and got got a small rock stuck in the jet pump. I was able to get it out but the ski revs very high before it starts moving. I could onl see a small nick on the impeller. any ideas on what could be wrong?

    It sounds like your wear ring got trashed..
    You will need to pull the pump to really get
    a good look at it.

    yea. hes right. your wear ring is shot, and/or your impeller is trashed as well cause it has to spin much faster now to get the machine moving.

    Yeah, replace the wear ring, and maybe even the prop.

    Yep sounds like wear ring got shredded.
    Any vibration or shaking? If it's vibrating, you could have something else still stuck in there. Get under it and shine a flashlight in the grate, sometimes a tiny piece of debris or wood chip can get stuck in there and the ski will just vibrate and go really slow.

    Wlecome to the Forum !

    You can do a core exchange on the prop through Impros or SBT. A new wear ring isnt a big deal they are about $50.

    You can use some basic tools to pull the pump as noted here.

    welcome to the forum

    can you post any pics of prop. It may be ok just need some repair.
    Although if you have stock ski it is reson to get a better prop and begin some moding. letter breathe.
    good luck.
