    you need a GPS speed to tell how much slower it's actually going. Can you feel a loss of speed?

    there was a rock in the impellar chamber which caused my slower speed. I called Kawasaki about the smoke and they say there is a problem with these skis take it to a repair shop and they probaly will pay for the repairs I'm crossing my fingers!!

    I picked up the same ski last year. It had low compression and was smoking. Kawasaki replaced the top end and the ecu free of charge.

    Smoking on 4-stroke ski is usually due to piston/ring issue. Check compression or do leak down test, and that will tell you which jug(s) might be having the problem.
