    2001 Polaris Virage tx hits rev limiter ay WOT

    I have a 2001 Polaris Virage tx it is a DI 1200. The ski runs good even at WOT but you can hear and feel like its hitting the rev limiter any ideas of what this could be? Would adjusting the TPS help this or is this another issue? Also I have a slow leak at the thru shaft do I need bearings or just seals? I haven't torn it down yet.Any help would be great. Thanks

    At what RPM does it appear to be 'limiting'?

    Press the Display button to see digital RPM across the bottom of the MFI screen.

    I know it starts at WOT. I can go 90% throttle no problem if I go all the way WOT it starts if I back out 1/4 of an inch its perfect and it doesnt really loose any top end its like the motor is trying to go faster than the EMM wants it too. I have been just test riding the ski short periods to check everything out and I realized it was happening if your not listening for it you really cant tell its doing it. Thanks for the help.

    The actual, numeric RPM levels are what we need to know in order to understand what is going on.
