What would the symptoms be of ring damage, i.e. would the waveraider
be slower out of the hole? I asked because I have a '97 WaveRaider.
My buddy took it out yesterday and got it clogged with weeds. I think
he ran it for about 10 mins. at low idle while it was clogged. By the
time I got to him and got it unclogged, there was white smoke coming
out for the front water sprayer.
I unclogged it and a couple minutes later when water was able to fully
circulate and the engine cooled, I was able to drive it at top
speed,although it hesitated at first. After that, it appeared to work
fine. Is there a tempature sensor or something on the waveraider?
