    Trixx Slower after Pump Rebuild

    Pump went bad and it was rebuilt at the dealership. When it went bad the ski wouldnt idle, I guess because of the resistance of the bad bearings. I didnt realize it but the pump had developed a whine and now it sounds great and ski runs great. But the ski is definitely running 2 mph slower, I even "raced" my other Spark to test it.

    Anybody know a reason for this? Should they have replaced the wear ring when they put the pump in so that it mates properly? Is the pump tight and maybe loosen up?

    I am not really concerned about the 2mph but I wonder if it is a sign of a bigger issue. I hate to take it back to the dealer and say "hey it is running perfect but it is 2 mph slower"

    Hey, Gibbs! Still like totally new to the sport and doing nothing but learning; however; I’d be surprised if they did change the wear ring if it doesn’t show up on your invoice AND I’d certainly wager that’d cost a mph or two (although it’s clearance with the impeller and not the pump that is critical, right?)
