  1. 1991 yamaha 650 won't start

    Vintage Jetski
    New stator, magneto, carb completely gone through. Doesn't seem to be any fuel getting to the heads. I have spark..I just don't know what else to do. The start/stop switches are okay, the fuel lines seem clear, the petcock works. It just will not fire, turns over, has compression.
  2. 95 yamaha waveraider 700 slipping feeling when accelerating

    General PWC & Jetski Discussion
    Hello, I have a 95 yamaha waveraider 700. When I give if full throttle it feels like it's "slipping kind of like a cars transmission". Pulled the jet pump out and looked at the spline on the impeller shaft. It seems to look okay to me. I then checked the midshaft by seeing if I could move it...
  3. 2000 Yamaha XL 800 Impeller Issue

    General How To's
    Hoping it is just an impeller issue but want to know if anyone else has experienced this. We had someone unknowingly suck up an anchor line, after getting the anchor line out I'm now having issues with not being able to reach top end. We used to be able to speed along at 50, now it won't hardly...

  6. 2019 Yamaha EX Sport killed why riding and starter just clicks.

    Yamaha Jetski
    New to owning jetskis. Son was riding slow through channel when machine killed. Starter just clicks. Would bad starter relay kill in middle of using? Seems odd. Nothing appears to have been sucked into jet (was in 3 feet of non-weedy water through channel). Battery tested out just...
  7. 2015 Vx1100e-p wear ring replacement

    Yamaha Jetski
    Question here on loss of speed with my 2015 VX1100e-p .... I’m 95% sure I’ve got a cavitation problem in the impeller housing so I took everything apart to replace the wear ring. It looks as though for this model I’ve got a stainless steel ring pressed into the housing instead of a plastic...
  8. What PWC Should I Buy?

    General PWC & Jetski Discussion
    I am looking to buy a fun, used PWC with a budget of around $2,000. I want something that is close to the agility and control of a stand-up jet ski but is a sit-down and more stable. I will mainly use it to free ride at a lake for wave jumping, going fast, and making quick, sharp turns. I also...
