I have a 1991 Yamaha wave runner and I can start it up it

Customer Question

JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: I have a 1991 Yamaha wave runner and I can start it up it will idol fine but when I go over half throttle it either bogs down or sounds like it's being governed. I brought it into a shop they thought it was the fuel pump changed that did a carb kit on it same problem. Then I told them to by pass the heat sensor and see if that was the problem. Nope same thing. I have just ordered a brand new cdi box for it because I don't know what else to do what do you think
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Marine Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi this is Kenny, who am I speaking to ? I need a little more info and then we'll continue.

  • Model
  • HIN hull number
  • Hours on this ski
  • Any mods to the engine
  • Salt or fresh water use ?
  • Do you have access to a multi-meter ?

I think you'll be wasting your money on a CDI box, if you didn't order it I would wait
