A girlfriend of mine had that same ski and it would run about 60 to 65 m.p.h. if I remember correctly. I'm not sure what that equates to in kilometers though? Let me go check the speedometer in my truck.

Yeah, I guess that would equate to around 100 to 110 kilometers an hour. The things you can check on the jet ski are your compression in each cylinder, new plugs and plug wires, is the carb needing to be cleaned, is the shaft and/or impeller damaged at all, is their old gas in the tank, is water is moisture in any of the electrical boxes and/or components etc.

yeah going to order new plugs tomorrow,see how it goes after that

should this ski pull a mono skier cause tried that and there was no chance?

Mine will pull 3 people in a tube or one of those pull behind floatie things with one extra person on the back of the ski with no problems so I would say yes, you should be able to pull at least 1 person in a tube.
