    RXP Shuttering - Any ideas?

    I was riding with a buddy who has a 06 RXP today. Ski was running fine then all of a sudden he couldn't go over 10 mph without the ski shuttering and shaking. I got on it and the sensation is like something is jammed in the pump. Got it on the lift and there is nothing stuck in the prop or pump any place. The ski idles and goes up to around 5 mph fine but then starts shaking and wont go any faster or get on plane. Also, on the lift it idles fine and will actually rev up fine too it seems, but back in the water under load it just wont do anything hardly. Only gets to about 5,000 RPM before you have to let off.

    Any ideas?

    is the prop loose? is it cracked? if no, did you at least change out the plugs, simple first...

    look for the obvious, intake/exhaust, check to see if IC is leaking water...

    wear ring looks fine to me. I took his grate off and looked in with a flash light, it appears to be fine.

    You may need to pull the pump for closer inspection

    I have had things in, then out the pump..
    Issues resembling yours. Just because you don't
    see anything in there now, doesn't mean something
    wasn't there earlier that caused damage..
    Pull the pump, I think it will be obvious !

    Pulling The Pump Is A Great Ideal
