    Check the vacuum tubes. the shortest of the 2 has a very small brass orfice in it. Unplug it and see if its plugged by blowing through it, if it is not allowing air through take it out clean the orfice replace and should run fine. Mine did!

    Re: honda aquatrax turbo nightmare

    Hi. I have been told i have to replace my turbo on my aqua trax because a flap is not opening like its supposed to. they said rain water got inside there during the offseason and ruined it. any suggestions? Its a giant paper weight right now. ive only had it a couple years.

    If they are talking about the waste gate I think it could be freed up with some penetrating oil

    Do a "search" on here for wastegate problems and you should find plenty of info on how to check/lubricate your wastegate.

    I wish the owners would say what fixed their gear. Iím in a nearly same situation. Ski hauls *** then if you let off the throttle and hit it again it lags and never recovers performance

    I wish. I just installed Jimís boost system. I took it out and hit a crab pit float that broke both of my rear through hull nuts and almost sank. I plan on testing again this weekend. What have you done so far?

    Sounds to me like the Wastegate is getting stuck open. Where in NC are you? I've gotten to know these skis fairly well through fixing mine up (was bought broken) and tons of research.

    That would be any easy fix. I changed actuators twice and put a LVDT on mine to prove that the shaft is closing when off throttle. I also took it apart and cleaned the sealing surface of the waste gate there was no binding on the WG shaft either.

    Check your oil, if itís milky then you have a manifold leak. My oil is black and the exhaust side of the manifold is dry.
