    04 RXP - Lacks power - Any idea?

    I bought an 04 RXP that on a test ride was a bit slugish, lacked power, I pulled the intake tube and the SC could spin by hand with force. I figured this was the cause of the lack of power. I just got the SC back in and same thing - really doggy, no power. I am new to the 4-Tec and was looking for ideas. The spark plugs look good, the prop is not in bad shape. What else can I check? Thanks.

    lacks power any idea?

    Hey bud i'm new to all this as well but i have asked questions and people on here have been great and i know a little know a little from asking but that S/C is not good it shouldn't spin at all DON'T run that motor so that you don't do any more damage if you have done any at all but you can send your S/C to one of the guy's on here and he'll redo it for you for a small cost and compared to the dealer it's a real small cost but ask alot of questions there free the repairs may not be but these guys will treat you right if you look to the left of the page there is a spot where you can click to get the info about the rebuild i wish you luck and small cost's ,stanger

    I'm guessing your from NJ? If so, PM Rab1. He's a big 4tec motor head. He'll fix it or help you out.

    It sounds like you have impeller and/or wear ring problems. Lay under the ski with a flashlight and see if you can see any nicks on the impeller or gouges in the wear ring... Ron
