Kawasaki ultra 260's are only cooled by lake or sea water so if the water supply gets blocked then it will overheat ! did it definatly overheat or just loose power because the superchargers do sieze up due to damp air or the pully bearing , also the dipsticks on them sometimes shear off and lock the cogs ! does the engine still run up on a hose pipe ? also has the ski been left a long time not used without fogging the valves in the head ? this is my job so get back to me ( 30 yrs ) ..

My jet ski is lacking power. It ceases to accelerate after 15kph

this jet ski has over 300 hp so should go much faster than this , but now it does have a few features /items that others do not have , one feature in particular that comes to my mind after hearing your description is its smart learning operation mode , or simply refered to as SLO Mode its activated by operators choice of key , do you have a red/blk key or a blu/blk key in the dash ?

since its engine is supercharged there are some other causes that could produce a power loss id consult a watercraft tech for more details as this machine is loaded with diag tech stuff to help a tech figure out whats wrong with it quickly

Yamaha gp1200 wave runner jet ski overheating what can be the problem

There is an obstruction somewhere inside the cooling system. Would you write back and tell me more about the jet-ski? Do you run this machine in salt or fresh water. How was the machine stored? What have you inspected so far? Whether it is scale or a nest. Have you inspected the water manifold? Is it clogged"? Please write back with more information or questions and I\'ll do my best, good luck.
