First thanks...these forums are great. I post on BMW bikes sites (have 3).
Ok I put my Honda R12 2004 (bought new 06) away for winter (same winterization as always), then when I went to use it in spring. It runs great, but it will go about 5 mph then sounds like it is slipping or had weeds plugging the water intake. It won't go faster and when you hit the throttle it just "slips" or vibrates. Up to few mph it seems fine.
So I pulled it back out and cked, no plug in the intake. Then cked oil and appears way to full? It was running fine when put away? So pulled all the oil and got it to proper level. (maybe my kids added oil to much oil).
But it still acts the same and slips or whatever.....did I get oil on a clutch or something that I will need to clean? Any help is greatly appreciated....I have no trouble taking it in for service...but it is a hassle from my cottage to get it there and back......
I have never had one problem with this ski before and kids love it.
