    RXP X cavitation

    Before I get flamed, I did search and did not find anything that I think quite fits.

    We have a 08 RXP X with 12 hrs on it. It sounds like it is cavitating. The ski pulls hard. I'm getting about 71 mph/8100 RPm at 3000 ft and 72-75 degrees lake temp. The only mod is the 14/23 Prop. The '04 RXP with the same prop does not cavitate. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Branton

    Try another intake grate.

    Worx best for chop

    r&d and riva for flat water.

    When i installed the worx on my rxt-x i gained about 60 rpm.

    Try and you will know.

    Sounds like an interesting thought. I figured that the stock grate on that boat was so aggressive it wouldn't be that. Also I intend on making the dealer fix it under warranty. So maybe they will put on the grate for me, but I doubt it.

    Don't forget that the RXP is making 40 hp less than the X ski. It seems like you would need more pitch on the X ski than the RXP... Ron

    8100 rpm is perfect!

    No pitching you will loose speed!

    Think this is not an impeller problem,just try the grate.

    Since you are going 71 mph,de dealer will say "whats your problem ? "

    Just mine opinion!!!
