I took it out a couple days ago about 70 degrees. It was a cold ride but I opened it up for about 10 seconds and she ran great. Trim motor is good too. What is the procedure to inspect the impeller? I’d like a little bit more speed and acceleration but I’d still be happy if she ran like that all summer

Just get down there with a flashlight and visually inspect both the impeller and the plastic ring that encases it. You should have paper thin clearances all the way around. If you see a lot of daylight between the blades and the wear ring, or chunks missing, or even deep gouges, it’s time for a new wear ring... You’d be really surprised how much of a difference a new wear ring makes compared to one that’s even mildly chewed up.

Understood. I’ll take a look when it stops raining. Also..... noticed a bit of water in the hull after that ride... what’s the most common deal to fail on the sea doo? I haven’t done a visual inspection yet although I should before posting but just curious. Will be a day or 2 before I get to work on it

If it’s just a bit of water, I wouldn’t stress it much. If it’s quite a bit, the first thing to check will be the carbon seal where the driveshaft comes into the hull. the second thing to check will be all of your exhaust cooling lines and water regulator. They tend to leak right at the fitting.

understood I’ll do some more troubleshooting today or tomorrow. Although it wasn’t a terrible amount of water I’d still like to try and solve the issue
