I just purchased a 97 XP last weekend and I took it out. I noticed that there is a steady stream of water thats pumped out from the left side of the boat I did know if this was normal! I didn't know if this was the water thats cooling the engine and then being discharged out or if the ski is taking water in!!!!!

I love it I was amazed at how fast the ski will run. I had a 97 GTI and few years back and it is a day and night difference. The Xp is a little unstable, you really have to balance when your idiling. Thanks for the reply I thought the constant steady stream of water coming from the front meant the ski was taking in a lot of water somewhere where it should be. But a constant sterm is normal when riding??

Yes it is normal, notice when you start moving the stream of water increases this is a combination of water from your intake and a little from your hull. my xp and gsx do the same. I enjoy my xp to I just wish i had more time to ride.:)
