2000 GP1200 Power Issue
Hey all, just joined Green Hulk after being referred by a friend.
My ski runs great for first 20-40 minutes and then starts to bog, feels like it's only getting 1/2 throttle. If you let off and wait a few seconds it will go full speed/throttle again for about 5 seconds and again bog out. Goes about 35mph when bogging.
It has a brand new impeller and just had a D-plate installed. Don't think it's the carbs because the issue comes and goes? I also replaced the fuel filter.

Hey deadbeat Welcome to the hulk..
Check the fuel tank vent. Item #15

Is the bog from air getting in, or from air NOT getting in?

If the tank is not drawing in air to replace the fuel as it is used you will create a vacuum and the flow to the pumps will suffer. A quick test is when the condition happens open the fuel fill knob and see if the condition goes away.

it is there but the previous owner installed it after the filter vent assy instead of in between the tank and filter vent assy,
but i think i may have found my problem, my primer is plumbed into my main fuel line instead of the return line
