Will only get up to 10 mph but RPM's are up to 8000. Impeller in good shape. No exhaust alarms. Newbie to waverunners.

I just had one do basically the same thing. I had to replace the impeller. It felt like a clutch was slipping. If they get any dings or nicks or anything in the impeller they will not getup speed at all.

Yamaha xl1200 waverunner losses power after it is warmed up.

Hi, most likely cause and the easiest to check is exhaust leaking in the engine compartment. Run it without the seat fitted for the same time frame and if it fixes your problem you are looking for an exhaust leak. Regards Phil.

I have a yamaha waverunner 700y. The battery is charfged but it wont start. It makes a clunk sound when I poush the start button. The in line fuse looks good. Any other suggestions? JT

Tap on the starter with a plastic hammer. If it works you need new brushes. If it does not turn the motor over, remove the starter , open it and see if water has gotten inside. If so you will have to replace it.

I have a 1998 yamaha waverunner XL1200. when i hit the start button it sounds like power going to the starter but won't start. only after the 3rd try. dose it need to be changed.

Corrosion in the leads can do this.Even if the leads look good,they may not be.Every lead needs to be taken off,cleaned,put a protectant on it,and put back together.the main power lead can look 100% but it may not be.My ski had the same issue and a small shake on the main lead showed me it needed fixing.This work costs nothing, but can fix a problem that a shop will charge heaps.Hope this helps

I have a 2000 Yamaha XL1200 waverunner. When I went to start it, the existing battery was weak. So, I put in a new battery and now it won't even try to start.

my 1998 xl 1200 has this thing it the batter is changed or if it sits for awhile you have to hit mode then something that says code should pop up on the screen then hit a b c a and then it should be able to start. but your code may be different
