    Feels like tapping the breaks.....

    What causes the ski toooooo like surge, pause,......I'm riding in pretty good chop, so when the skis comes in and out of the water it seems to be like your tapping the breakes. I thought I heard it could be like pop off pressure or something. Can someone tell what they might think it is and is there a cure for it.

    sounds like your OPAS system.. they paddles drop down
    when you go airborne because of water pressure drop..
    I hate opas.. It's the 1st thing I get rid of..
    You can eliminate it, use the pvc blockups or just live with it

    Your SC clutch may be slipping also causing a surge

    Well I have no OPAS using Riva Pro block offs. What the easiest way to check to see if the SC is slipping?
    only have about 15hrs on ski

    Your tops valve could be reacting to the bouncing.

    Sounds like the pump is unhooking in the chop, change grates.

    They do that when they come unhooked and hit the limiter it kills power for a split second. It is normal!

    How do you check to see if it just the SC slipping and if so how do you fix it?
