    95 sea doo gtx 787 wont go over 40

    fixed a customers boat, wouldnt accelerate over 40mph. fall right on its face. so while running at speed when this happened, i switched the fuel selector from on to reserve, and cured the problem. so i replaced the selector switch and all is well. now, i have another ski, 1999 gtx, same exact problem, same exact fix. go figure. just wanted to pass this on. simple solution

    The fact that SD did not make a 787 powered GTX until '96 could have had something to do with it.

    Look at the last two numbers of HIN. 95=1995 model year, 96=1996 model year, ect.

    It is not unusual for a title or registration to be incorrect.

    If it were a '95 GTX it would have a 587 or a 657 and would only go much over 40 while going down the interstate behind the tow vehicle.

    Though the hulls were changed drastically on the GTX from '95 to '96 the coloration was much the same so the color does not help you. A '96 GTX looks like a '97+ while a '95 does not.

    It is not really a big deal except that 40 is about all a '95 GTX will do. Well, ok, it is a little faster than that, but it is still freakin' slow

    Brian, I usually blow out the fuel selector thru out the setting. They tend to built up pot metal aluminum corrosion and clogs up? 95 gtx should be 657x motor I think I have a picture of an 95 & 96 as I sold a pair just prior to MB. Maybe the owner or prior owner got creative with HIN plates?

    right on. the one on the left is the ski i have. with the 787. maybe somewhere along the line the motor was changed. anyways, it would fall on its face from lack of fuel, hence the selector switch was bad, now it goes 42 damn its a 96 with paperwork for 95. wtf!!!!!! darn u sea -doo guys.
