Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
There are a few things here that could be happening, an 1998 is pre learner key and thus no slow mode based on key, it could however be an overheat (of which unknown due to beeper not functioning, low charging system voltage/system not charging - check on pwc with engine running at idle battery voltage should be near 14v dc, if say below 13v then it is not charging or not correctly, or if everything is fine with exception rpms high speed low, otherwise responds exact as it should high rpms but speed is low, this would indicate cavitation from the pump, there are multiple things that can cause this but the most common is impeller and wear ring and the gap between and checking for damage to both.
To tell of an overheat check gauges and check with testing if beeper bad then replacing it. You can also use an IR temp gun to check actual temp if overheating.
Thank you!
