Hello all. brief background on myself. i am completely new to owning and operating a PWC. the other day i bought a new vx cruiser took it out, put an hour and a half on it. everything was great. today put another hour and a half on it. i started getting a warning light with beeping then the engine hot light went on. i taxi'd into the dock took the seat off and let the craft cool off for about 20 mins. started up and the light and beep went away. took'er for a spin, shortly thereafter the RPMs would fly but i wouldnt move. i checked for seaweed in the intake grate several times and it was clean. there was i guess youd say alot of smoke coming from the exhaust ports, mainly the one on the left side of the craft ( i think left is starboard?). i taxi'd into the dock and ate lunch while i let the craft cool with the seat off. and took it on one more spin to make sure it was just that it was hot or if something was actually broken to see if i needed to take it to my dealer for repair. it worked just fine after letting it cool. honestly i guess i might have been a little rough on the engine for it being brand new but thats just it, should a brand new engine be over heating like this? sorry for the rant but for the best advice you need to provide details. thanks in advance. p.s. waverunners are so much fun
