    Bouncing off rev limiter and not moving

    Well, i posted a while ago, could not find the post, and dont remember what the answer was exactly.

    I let my idiot friends ride my 08 rxp 215, and they gassed it when it was still basically on shore, it shot up rocks and mud

    after that, when i would go to punch it, it would bounce off of the rev limiter for a little then slowly start going..

    is that my wear ring?

    I would definately say the wear ring and check the impellor, and pump for damage. Then go give "your buddy" a good ass whooopin for tearing your stuff up.

    sound like a mashed prop,and poss liner,have you shone a torch up the nozell,or looked through the grate,you might be able to see any damage or debris in there,worth a look

    it could be all of what everyone is saying you need to get in there and take a look at it. Could be the wear ring is all torn up, the impeller is bent up, and damage to the vains on the pump shoe

    well, maybe i wasnt super clear, sorry. The ski moves, it still goes fast, just doesnt exactly go when you hit throttle standing still, it starts moving while hitting rev limiter a few times, then starts picking up then starts moving. still pulls, just not as hard.

    so im hoping it would just be the wear ring? i looked in there, there is no "visible" damage as far as i can see.

    most definitely sounds like cavitation.
    probably wear ring needs to be replaced.
    do it yoyurself it is very easy and good tricks on this site to do it quick and easy.
    and while you are working on it you can inspect the impeller for damage,
    and the pump vanes.
    and the pump shoe.
    if you sucked up rocks, even small dings in impeller can affect performance.
    take it apart and post some pics.
