    Speedometer isn't working properly

    I went tubing on the f-12x today with some of my buddies and decided to stop at an island and beach it. When we came back to the ski, the waves had turned it sideways and was rocking the ski against the beach. I got back on it and when i turned it on, i started shooting mud and rocks out,. Then I noticed as I started to go that the speedo wasn't working right at all. At full throttle it only read 27 mph. I was getting 6250 rpms so i know i must have been at top speed. Does anybody know how to fix this? I would really love to not bring it to the dealer.


    Thanks

    look beside your pump you'll see a little wheel on your ride plate, just try to spin it, when mine does that I'll put it in reverse and give it a few blips of the throttle, she usually clears out

    exactly what h20rocket said, when i beach sometimes i get a little rock stuck where that little wheels goes and jams it. i just stick my finger there and look for debree and remove it or i just spin it and it works fine.

    Thanks guys! It turns out there was a pebble lodged in the small port on the ride plate that leads to the wheel.

    In the future, if you see it shooting out mud and rocks, you should probably turn it off and push it out a bit further....
