    RXP-X Needs Help

    I have a 2008 Sea Doo RXP-X. I only have 8 Hrs on the ski. Today while on the water I pulled the throttle and the ski revved very loud and vibrated but would'nt go faster than 7mph. The rpm's were red lining with the ski just shaking. Finally, it took off and was fine for about 30min then it happened again and I had to idle in. Can someone help with any tips.

    Thank you

    Sounds like you have something stuck in your prop.

    Get under the ski and look into the grate area ... that is where you will find the junk you sucked up. Nothing will stay lodged in the back of the pump, once it gets there it immediately gets blown out.

    I looked in the grate and can't find a thing. What are some other possibilities?

    Sometimes you can run in reverse a little ways, shut the ski off and drift a bit backwards to drive what ever's in there out. Sort of like the chainsaw that won't run, you take it apart, find nothing and put it back together and it runs great.
