    Speedometer reading 0 mph

    I have an Ultra LX and we had just beached it at Possum Kingdom Lake and when we went back out the speedo would only read 0 mph. Please help me fix this issue. Thanks.

    did you have it on the sand? There is no problem, most likely you have a little sand in the rear speed sensor wheel and thats why its not reading the speed....

    BTW it will clear out on its own or you can take a look at it, its that little wheel that sits in the back bottom of the ski.

    Same thing happened to me this weekend after I flipped/beached my ski. I thought water had gotten into the screen display, but SAL08HO is right. There is a little wheel in the rear of the ski that actually reads your speed (thus why it's so inaccurate). Once that clears, you will be back to enjoying your inflated speeds thanks to the dreamometer!

    I did have it in sand. I found the little wheel and it was stuck. It spins now. Thank you! How easy was that! Shows you how little I know about ski's. Is there anything I should lube it with to help it spin freely?

    will always happen 9 times out of 10 if you beach on sand.
    when you take off and it doesn't work reach around a spin it free.
