    Exclamation 1996 seadoo gti. WOT does 10mph

    1996 seadoo gti. at WOT does 10mph
    i,ve got the correct gas and seadoo manifactures oil in it.
    impeller looks ok visualy but i'm an auto mechanic.
    Water coming in through the drive shaft rubber boot in to engine compartment.
    at times the seadoo will have full speed at WOT. Then die to an idle.
    before i hit 15mph the seadoo high revs at a slow speed, at 15mph the rpm drops and the craft slows down and then high revs again when it hits about 10 or 12 mph.
    Starts fine when cold. trouble starting when at opperating temp.
    can not live with out the seadoo. any help is appeciated. i,m in surrey BC
    if you guys want to make some money. or can fix my self with alittle direction, either way works. thanks friends

    One of my machines did a similar thing last year...would rev high but barely get up on plane. Turned out to be the regulator/rectifier. To test it unplug the red wire on the reg rect in the front e box. If it will run fine with it unplugged than that is your problem.

    pulled it apart and the impeller had moved forward and hit a plate. will take a while to fix. bought a 2005 seadoo 215hp super charged, so as i said, invites always welcome.
