Guys, I am helping a guy get his ski ready for the Spring/Summer. I have already ordered oil, filter and plugs. I took the ski out today before changing the oil, plugs, etc, and got 41.7 on GPS at 6650 RPM (range 6610 - 6670). The ski ran what I think is below average. I don't know...I am a SeaDoo owner. Can you guys tell me what the optimal RPM and average stock speed is on this thing?
After I get this one going, I have his 2004/2005 R12X to work on. Thanks in advance for the help. --Jeremy

seems like this is the non turbo version which tops out around 50-55, i think its still slow, i bet impeller too, how many hours on the ski?

What are the ideal/optimal RPMs for the non-turbo skis? I guess I will be pulling the pump.

I pulled the pump and looked at the impeller...JUNK. The leading edges are all bent up.
Also, when I removed the pump cone, the grease looked like milky coffee and seemed to be a bit "runny" for grease. Does this mean the pump bearings, etc need to be replaced or is that the type of grease I should expect to find in the Hondas?

The grease is "runny" because the factory grease is EPA friendly. It does not necessarily mean you have bad seals.
On the Honda's I recommend that you pull and inspect the pump 2X a season. Its just good/cheap insurance to prevent problems.

I am helping a buddy out and just want to make sure everything is straight o his ski for the season.
Anyone know what the OEM prop pitch is? Anyone have one laying around?
