    cavitation on acceleration?

    I have a FX12 2005 that hesitates on hard acceleration. It seems like it is cavitating. I can nudge it up to 50mph if I'm lucky but then it decelerates. Also the speedometer bounces around a bit not truely reflecting the change in speed. Any ideas?

    I posted this in the performance section which I think is incorrect. Sorry for the double post.

    Check and see if you have changed to your "learning mode". I no longer have a Honda but remember this happening once when I did and it felt just like trash in impeller but was the rev limiter. I don't remember exactly what the signal looked like but seem to recall a flashing "learn" in the bottom center of the display. Good luck!

    It is not in the learning mode but it does feel like a rev limiter kicking in. I checked the wear ring and the impeller - both look good. Ski has 75 hours on it

    Hum, R U sure? What about putting it in "learn" see how it reacts and then put back to "normal" mode?

    Possible bad ground, but I would put my money on the spark plugs.
