    Bad Rectifier??

    Hey guys

    I have a 94 Seadoo XP.
    Having problems in the water above 4000rpm - 5000rpm starts to bog and surges on WOT and does not climb any higher.
    Out of water have set idle to 3100 and when on WOT revs only to 4000rpm and bangs and pops.
    Is this due to a bad Rectifier?
    If I unhook the red wire should my revs climb above 4000 out of water if the rectifier is the problem? IE should I be able to test without taking it on the water?

    Have drained fuel, put new fuel in, cleaned the exterior fuel filter which was actually all good. Doesn't have grey fuel lines and have put some fuel set in the fuel also.
    Thanks heaps

    Have you replaced the filters inside of the carbs?

    You need to create more threads. The issue wont go away until you make at least 2 dozen threads for the exact same problem

    Really, guy? You pi$$ away our time with a million threads, but can't be bothered with a thorough carb and fuel system cleaning?

    Do a little work lady, and stop being a lazy b!tch.

    If the rectifier took a sh!t, what would happen? Did you even bother to learn what a rectifier does? You'd have a few VERY different issues, but whatever.

    Re: Bad Rectifier??

    I am all new to this pwc business - I am just after some help.
    This thread is the only problem I now have with it is not wanting to rise above 4000rpm on WOT.
    I also read the rectifier can cause this.....
    So basically you would suggest a fuel system rebuild. Any ideas on what may cause this if I do the rebuild and it doesn't make a difference?
    Thanks

    Rectifier problems only pop up when a dc-cdi gets fed ac when the rectifier portion goes bad. You have an ac-cdi, so will not have that problem. You most likely have a fuel delivery problem.
