    Yamaha Jetski
    Hey guys, I recently bought a 2001 gp1200r and it runs completely mint no problems besides that I have noticed I am only reaching a top speed of 58 mph with 1 rider. I have read they go 62+ stock. Any suggestion on what may be causing it?

  3. 1999 Yamaha XL760 not starting

    Yamaha Jetski
    Please, before giving me the obvious things, understand I have a working jetski that I have pulled the battery out of and it still won't start. I push the bottom and nothing. No click, crank or noise of any kind. It seems to have a loose connection somewhere but I cannot for the life of me...
  4. 98 gp760. Premix, or keep oil injection?

    I have a 98 gp760. Im thinking about removing the oil injection system and going straight premix. The exhaust at idle and low speeds is driving me crazy. Has anyone done this and noticed less smoke at low speeds?
  5. Runs fine on land. Bogs down in the water.

    Yamaha Jetski
    I got a 1996 yamaha deluxe. I believe it's a 650cc 2 stroke engine and it works perfectly fine on land but bogs down in the water. It worked perfectly fine until the guy I'm fixing this for took off the muffler to paint it because it was really corroded and after it was put back on it started...

    Yamaha Jetski
    I got this jet ski from a family member free of cost. He used to work on them and it ran great last year. Gas was low in the ski so I put 89 unleaded in the tank and that was when the problems seemed to arise. I was riding it one day, and every time I would pull the gas, it would just die...

  9. How much smoke is too much smoke?

    General PWC & Jetski Discussion
    I have 1998 Yahama GP760 that I got last year. It’s a 2 stroke so I know some smoke is normal. But when should I be concerned with the amount coming out the exhaust? Toward the end of the season it seemed to be smoking more than normal but nothing too crazy. Does anyone know any resolutions to...
