    2005 FX HO Question

    Hi, I have a 2005 FX HO. Last season I began to notice that the waverunner under full throttle seemed to have a slight vibration. My brother has the exact same ski and if you were to jump on his he does not have any vibration and it almost seems as if his responds better now I only feel it when I pull the throttle all the way back from a stand still. Top speed are pretty much the same maybe mine is 1-3 mph slower I was told by somebody that it could be my impellar is worn. Is this true? And is there a way to check some how with a feeler gauge or something?
    Thanks!

    could be impeller, hull damage or motor mount

    all easy things to check

    Ok checking the hull is pretty self explanatory and I saw no damage on the bottom.

    As far as the engine mounts im assuming im looking for cracks or anything broken. How mounts do the 05 FX HO have?

    For the impellar what exactly am I looking for. When looking at it through the nozzle thingy it "seems" identical to my brothers.

    Any advice would be great!

    4 motor mounts...

    Take the intake grate off (4 bolts) and put a feeler gauge between the impeller and wear ring to check the clearence. The impeller can simply wear or have a ding on it from a rock or whatever.
