  1. PCM H5 engine troubles

    Hey Surfer, so have gotten some more time on my boat, have a better gauge of what I am running at for RPMs. To answer your question on fill and settings, I run 100/90ish on my RAM depending on what side I am running (I find a slight list helps my wave clean and crisp and can drain and fill the RAM on the fly in seconds). I run 100 on both plug and plays and maybe 40% center now (didn't historically use my center or bow sacs but recently had my dog on the bow and like the extra length her weight provided). I also have 400lbs of lead weight spread out from mostly cooler back (right now I have 100 in the cooler, 100 on each side under the towers and 50 in the rear behind the PNPs). For settings I usually run 70 /45 on both sides but 0 CATS on port side and -18ish on starboard side. Usually run between 10.7 and 11.4. We've been really happt with these settings and my wife is very picky about her wave. I find it very consistent at those settings as well. As far as RPM, my girl serrms to like starboard side better, runs between 3200 and 3600. She runs 3600-3800 on the port side. Hope this info helps. Again I have a 450 but run at 6000 feet so I lose a lot of horse power. Good luck again
  2. Anyone have any issues starting their RI? I am having issues with my RI not turning over? Started in the slip and filled. Started up, surfed my girl for about 40 minutes. Killed it, switched riders and nothing - wouldn't turn over ( full power and battery, all screens lit up, just nothing when you hit the start button). Sat around for about 10 minutes, giggled the throttle and contact. Notice the same issue while at Lake Pleasant last fall after launching and then filling. Acts like it's not in gear, wiggle the throttle and nothing until out of nowhere, it will turn over again? Anybody come across this issue? Thank you in advance for any assistsnce
  3. PCM H5 engine troubles

    Hey Surfer, so it looks like my engine runs around 3800 when surfing. Hope this info helps you figure out if something is going on. Good luck!!

    Sorry to hear about your issues. I will be out Friday (also run my ri217 at high elevation) and will let you know what her RPM is when weighted and surfing.
  5. Fabdock for 217

    Heres a pic
  6. Hey crew, anyone interested in a custom built fab-dock for a 217? They are pricey (@ 13.5k) but a really convenient option for those who want to keep her dry while floating but do not have the capacity for a traditional boat lift set up. I have one pre-ordered to float behind our houseboat and should be available for install in about 2-3 weeks (but I won't be able to install it until next Spring). Thought maybe some other 217 owner may have a more immediate use and I would reorder next Spring. DM me if interested and I can send you some photos and the price sheet.
  7. Ri217 owners

    Hey crew, I also have a question for fellow 217 owners: anyone interested in a custom built fab-dock for a 217? They are pricey (@ 13.5k) but a really convenient option for those who want to keep her dry while floating but do not have the capacity for a traditional boat lift set up. I have one pre-ordered to float behind our houseboat and should be available for install in about 2-3 weeks (but won't be able to install it until next Spring).

  8. I had this exact problem also iin my 217. Turned out the actuator was stripped and wouldn't fully retract. Once I got a new one installed (under the warranty) hasn't happened since. Maybe this is your issue as well?
  9. Anyone need a boat driver for this Thursday in the Salt Lake area? Have the day to kill iand thought maybe someone was headed out and had room for 1

  11. Hey crew, anyone got their 2018 ri257 wave dialed in? If so share your settings please. Asking for a friend, thank you
  12. Congratulations!! Absolutely love mine. I don't wakeboard behind mine but I like my surf waves. Only after market addition is i added 400 lbs lead in the rear. I run anywhere from 10.8 to 11.6. Slower shortens and steepens the wave, faster stretches it out a little. I only fill my rear pnps and ram, but fill them all to the brim. Sometimes i shed some RAM for beginners. For right side I run negative CATS (9-20), 65 to 75 in quick surf tab and 55-65 in center tab. For a quick switch to left side I zero out the cats, maybe 45 to 55 (little less) center tab because the engine works a little harder pushing a left side wave. I run mainly right side so haven't developed my left side wave as much, but I have pulled some pretty big guys on my left and one went out and bought a new ri afterwards. Visually both sides are super clean and crisp. Feel free to direct message me if you have any questions. Happy surfing homie
  13. Hey crew, anyone know how to self remedy a warning code for when your intake manifold temp volt is above normal or gas a short high source? Getting a warning code of SPN 105 and FMI 3. Be nice to fix her this weekend if anyone has a solution. Thanks in advance

    @davidcastelhano congrats on the new boat. Love the colors
  15. Silly Question

    Definitely want to have the T plug in before you launch. Not a silly question at all COV2. I once had my T plug wiggle out while running back in. Bit of a long story but ran my girl until the recommended 20 hour service. Got her back from thd dealer after the service and didnt think i needed to check my T plug. Sure enough it was choppy on the way back into the marina after the first day of surfing and my T came out. Was curious why my bildge was running so opened my rear compartment at my slip and had a good 6 inches of water. After the initial shock, was able to determine the T plug was missing and then barley spotted it lying on the rear port tranny under what is now more like 10 inches of water. It was really hard to see partly because of all the water, but mostly because of how deep the engine compartments are in the RIs. Finding the plug was the easy part, getting it was another matter. Dove in head first and after growing my arm about 3 inches, could just barely reach it with my fingertips, thankfully. Now the real challenge was getting myself out of the engine compartment upside down water to my nose. Honestly I was stuck for a second and thought, well, upside down in my sinking boat . . .guess there are worst ways to go? At least it would make a catchy headline and great photo op (feet sticking out of a partially submerged wake boat, almost too perfect not to be staged). But somehow I was able to wedge myself out against the hot engine. Chest was covered in small burns and big bruises, but I live to fight and more importantly, she still floats, another day! Moral crew: always check both plugs, no exceptions.
